Sky Courier 408 Unveiled By Cessna A few days ago Textron Aviation brand Cessna unveiled a new product to the world, the Cessna Sky Courier 408. Deliveries start in 2020 with the launch customer FedEx. Yes, that's right, the plane is mainly a cargo carrier but it should be pretty easy to convert one of these to a VIP role. FedEx ordered 100 of the type with 50 straight up and purchase rights to another 50 to exercise if needed. The thing with this new aircraft is that it can be used to haul cargo of up to 6,000 lbs or it can be used to carry passengers.
