* This is a rare find. A clean, 2-owner, always hangared, low-time '78 Turbo 210 that was based in dry southwest Cortez, Colorado the first 30 years its life. Very clean airframe with no corrosion issues. The owner is a meticulous pilot, with 50 years of flying experience who takes exceptional care of his aircraft. He refers to this Centurion as a 'No Excuses Airplane'. Everything is working, and squawk free to the best of his knowledge at the current time. The owner is selling to pursue other interests and is not highly motivated or seeking lowball offers on this exceptional airplane.

** This aircraft is eligible for the RT Aerospace 200-pound Max Gross Takeoff Weight Increase STC. This will raise the useful load from 1,454.4 lbs to a whopping 1,654.4 lbs and it only costs $395 for the STC/license. There is no modification of any kind required to the airframe or engine for this weight increase. It is only a licensing issue, paperwork, etc. This only eligible for the 1977 & 1978 Cessna T-210M model aircraft as they had the identical airframe and engine of a 1979 & later T-210N model, the only difference T-210M models still had hydraulic gear doors when they left the assembly line. Other than that they are the same aircraft structurally and had the same 310hp engine as the T-210N models that came with the 4,000# Max Gross Takeoff Weight (MGTOW).
