Cessna has secured an order for two Cessna 208B Grand Caravan EX and four T206H Stationair turboprops from Pakistan via the US government.

The aircraft will be modified to perform aeromedical evacuation missions, the US Defense Department says in a contract announcement posted last week. Worth $14 million, the aircraft package will be delivered by December.

“A 24-month sustainment package consisting of spares, tooling and support equipment will be provided for each aircraft,” the notice states. “Pilot and maintainer training will also be provided for the Pakistan Army personnel.”
