The Cessna 310 respectively Cessna 320 Skyknight is a twin-engined four- to six-seat light touring and corporate aircraft with retractable landing gear produced by the US-American manufacturer Cessna Aircraft Company.
Light piston aircraft. In service since 1954. First civil twin engine aircraft designed by CESSNA. Exists in both civil and military versions. A development of 310F was the turbocharged 320 Skyknight with a fourth cabin window. It was replaced by the similar T310.
The Cessna 310 was a common charter aircraft for the many air taxi firms that sprang up in the general aviation boom that followed World War II. The advantages to the Cessna 310 over its contemporaries, such as the Piper Aztec, were its speed, operating costs and aftermarket modifications such as the Robertson STOL kits which made it popular worldwide for its bush flying characteristics
