The 7-8 seat light utility aircraft Cessna 207 was built in the period 1969-1984 by the Cessna
Aircraft Company in Wichita, Kansas, USA. Model 207 appeared in 1968 as an elongated 7 seats
version of the Cessna 206D. The protoype Cessna Skywagon 207 was flown first on 11 May 1968. Over
the years the Model 207 was developed and next to the Cessna 207A Super Skywagon with larger diameter
propellor, the turbocharged Cessna T207 Turbo Skywagon appeared. In 1978, the design was revised to
produce the Stationair 7 and Turbo Stationair 7 which, with the introduction of an eighth seat in 1980,
became the Stationair 8 and Turbo Stationair 8. When production ended in 1984: 790 207s were built.
Over the years various subsequent third-party developments of the 207 were introduced, including the
Soloy Turbine Pac conversion. This Soloy Turbine Pac STC (#SE2352NM) converts the Allison 250-C20S
turboshaft engine into a FOD resistant, highly reliable, 420 hp turboprop package. The turbine engine
is inherently quiet, producing very little exhaust noise. In the Soloy system, the propeller turns very
slowly, i.e., approximately 1200 RPM for taxi, 1810 RPM for takeoff and cruise. Consequently, the Soloy
Turbine Cessna is very quiet in all areas of operation.
On 29 April 1998, the 1982-built Cessna T207-A Soloy c/n 20700747 (ex.
PH-GEA ntu, PH-HOO ntu, PH-MMB ntu, PH-SEX ntu, HB-CLM, N9896M) was
registered PH-ZZF in the Netherlands with Paracentrum Hoogeveen,
Hoogeveen, as operator and CSZ Ommen, Ommen, as owner. On 28 November
1998, the PH-ZZF was registered with Paracentrum Hoogeveen in Hoogeveen.
The aircraft is used by the skydivers of the Paracentrum Eelde-Hoogeveen (PCEH).
