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, like 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. The ICAO code for the Cessna 207 is C207.
The 1980-built Cessna T207A Turbo Skywagon 8 s/n 20700590 was registered N37443 in the USA.
On 11 June 1980, registration N37443 was cancelled as exported to the
Netherlands. The aircraft was registered first as OE-DNU in Austria, but
on 24 June 1980, the aircraft was registered PH-OTJ in the
Netherlands with Air Service Holland BV, Twello. On 10 July 1980, the
PH-OTJ was registered with KLM Aerocarto BV, Den Haag. On 29 November
1996, the registered ownership changed to KLM Aerocarto BV, Arnhem. On
26 February 2009, Cessna T207A PH-OTJ was registered with Fugro Aerial
Mapping BV, Leidschendam, as operator, and Fugro Finance AG in Swiss, as
owner. On 21 November 2012, registration PH-OTJ was cancelled as exported to
Malta, where the Cessna T207A was registered 9H-FMJ with Fugro Malta
Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fugro NV. When seen at Teuge Airport
in the Netherlands, the Cessna T207A Turbo Skywagon 8 9H-FMJ wear still
the basic KLM Aerocarto colors of KLM .
