Modifying  a standard Cessna Pressurized 210 airframe with the installation of a Rolls-Royce (Allison) 250-B17F/2 gas turbine engine, is only the first step in what results in a  totally remanufactured aircraft, known as The Silver Eagle.

Why buy turbine power without pressurization and lose the safety and comfort of oxygen hose-free flying in the flight levels for you and your family? Have it both ways in the unique Silver Eagle package.

No other pressurized, single-engine turbine aircraft offers a standard package that includes as many options and features for a single price as the Silver Eagle Cessna P-210 turbine conversion. There's a long list of standard options provided by some of the best names in the aviation industry.

It truly has no competition in the pressurized, single-engine turbine market at the well-under $900k price point, including conversion-aircraft acquisition costs. If this is what you're looking for in an aircraft, that's what the Silver Eagle offers! Take a close look at the others and then compare.

The unique sound you hear as you pass over the top of the page is the starting of the powerful Rolls-Royce turboprop engine. A real attention-getter on any ramp full of piston-powered aircraft!

Countless new dimensions and features are incorporated into the modification as well. Here is a look at just a few of them:

PERFORMANCE BOOST

With 45 percent more horsepower on take-off and climb, you will:

  • Cut 1/2 from the take-off distance
  • Shave the landing roll to a mere 500 feet
  • Climb to cruise altitude in only 8-10 minutes
  • Move speed from 169 Kts to above 216 Kts
  • Slice block times by an average of 20-30%

PAYLOAD INCREASE

By replacing the 510-pound Continental engine with the 205-lb. turbine, payload is immediately increased by 140 pounds, even AFTER taking into consideration the higher jet fuel weight, and other new systems.
Panel

STAR CLASS PANEL

A new flight deck welcomes the crew ~ a customized all-metal instrument panel with clusters of turbine gauges in addition to standard avionics and systems, including an S-Tec 55 Autopilot with Altitude Pre-Select.

QUIETNESS

This is one of the few high performance aircraft that meets Alpine Country noise restrictions.

PRESSURIZATION & AIR CONDITIONING PACKAGE

The Silver Eagle offers cabin comfort at its best! No other affordable single-engine general aviation aircraft offers both turbine power and pressurization ~ air conditioning is standard equipment; pressurization retained to 23,000'.

DUAL VACUUM SYSTEM

Dual pumps provide IFR back-up, one electrically driven by the 150-Amp alternator, and one mechanically driven by the engine. Since weight has not been a penalty, a large 40+Amp battery serves as a further electrical power reserve.

INCREASED RANGE

Range takes a giant stride-from 760 NM to 1030 NM. A 27-gallon fuel tank is added as standard in the baggage area, extending useable fuel to 115 U.S. gals. This distance is accomplished at standard cruise, but powering back a few knots can move the range to well above 1200 NM ~ almost a 50% increase over the standard piston. Jet-A almost always costs less per mile than AvGas. Overseas, the cost savings can cut as much as 50% from fuel bills.

STRUCTURAL STRENGTHENING

Extending beyond the obvious new nose, engine mounts and cowling, flight control surfaces have been strengthened with combinations of additional ribs, heavier fittings, dual trim tab actuators, and mass balancing of the rudder and ailerons.

REVERSIBLE DE-ICED PROP

The flight standard Hartzell propeller is further complemented by optional aircraft de-ice packages. The Silver Eagle's 90-inch, three-bladed reversible propeller provides STOL performance, snappy climbs, optimum cruise, and the ability to BACK INTO parking areas.

SIMPLICITY, SAFETY, AND RELIABILITY

Turbinization effectively reduces cockpit workload, permitting the pilot more time to concentrate on mission discipline and enjoy the freedom of flight. Single-engine turbine reliability reaches toward twin engine safety, considering the reduction in operational complexity and increased power reserve. Reduced engine maintenance (3500 hours TBO) and improved starting ease means increased operational readiness.

TOTAL AIRCRAFT REFURBISHMENT

Once a Silver Eagle conversion is completed, the owner takes delivery of a virtually "new" aircraft, with no detail left unattended. The elegant, customized interior is finished in the highest quality leather, suede and carpet, while the aircraft is painted by the expert craftsmen at Lancaster Aero Refinishers, Smoketown, Pennsylvania.
