The C208 Grand Caravan is an american aircraft, manufactured by an aviation giant Cessna.

The engine is a turboprop by Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-114A (600CV). The plane can fit up to 15 skydivers, plus the pilots. Moreover, the door size and position make it an ideal plane for skydiving practice. The model was first made in 1982.
