PH-ZZF Cessna T207-A Soloy c/n 20700747 - Hoogeveen airfield in Holland - 5 September 2009 vliegveld Hoogeveen (EHHO)

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 s/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 was used by the skydivers of the Skydive Hoogeveen, initially known as Paracentrum Eelde-Hoogeveen (PCEH). On 28 April 2017, the Cessna T207-A Soloy was replaced by Cessna 208B Supervan 900 PH-JMP. The Cessna T207-A Soloy was sold to Latvia and registration PH-ZZF was cancelled on 2 February 2018.
