Cessna Model 411 is a 1960s American twin-engined, propeller driven light aircraft built by Cessna Aircraft. It was that company's largest business aircraft when it first flew in 1962, other than a four-engined airliner developed during the 1950s, which was not put into development.
Design and development
The Cessna 411 was a new design that started life as the Cessna 410 concept (of which none were actually built). It has 340 hp/254 kW Continental Motors GTSIO-520-C engines. It had a crew of one or two and room for four to six passengers. The prototype first flew on 18 July 1962. During 1965 Cessna developed two generally similar and lower-cost versions, the Model 401 and Model 402. Production of the 411 finished in 1968. A pressurised version of the 411 was developed as the Cessna 421. The 411 has been subject to rigerous re-testing of its flight performance in the 1990s by Cessna and the FAA due to a number of accidents. This testing confirmed that the aircraft meets all the design requirements for certification. Flown properly by suitable skilled flight crew it is a very safe aircraft. Today, vortex generators are able to be fitted the aircraft, which make single engine handling exceptionally easy.
