The Cessna 210 Centurion is a five- to six-seat, high-performance, retractable-gear, single-engine, high-wing general aviation aircraft. First flown in January 1957, it was produced by Cessna until 1986.


The Cessna 210 family includes many variants, but only one (the P210N) is modelled for FlightGear so far. (Silver Eagle turboprop modification of the P210N by O&N coming soon)
