CASA C212 Aviocar

The Aviocar has a fuselage with a nearly square cross section featuring round cabin windows. The rear fuselage is sloped up to allow easy loading. The vertical stabiliser appears to be tilted forward, as the forward sweep of the trailing edge is larger than the sweep angle of the leading edge. Finally, the C212 has a fixed undercarriage with all single wheels. 

The primary market for the CN235 and longer C295 is military transport, which is why the aircraft have an upswept rear fuselage, to facilitate loading and unloading. Also characteristic are the two wheels of the main landing gear in tandem configuration, retracting in pod attached to the fuselage.

The Cessna 208 Caravan is a single engine turboprop with a fixed gear and a non-pressurised fuselage. It has large rectangular cabin windows. This type is often confused with the Quest Kodiak, which is very similar in appearance. The easiest way to keep them apart is by the nose. The standard Caravan has air intakes on both sides of the prop spinner, and a large exhaust on the right side of the fuselage.

Cessna 335/340

The Cessna 340 (and 335, the non-pressurised version) can be easily mixed-up with aircraft of the Cessna 400 series. The general appearance is the same, the differences are in the details. Good to known is that the Cessna 335/340 always has four cabin windows and tip tanks, and a thinner fuselage than the larger 400 series.  

Cessna 400 series (oval windows)

Differentiating between most of the Cessna 400 series twins with oval cabin windows is quite hard, as most look very similar, as is the Cessna 340. However, when looking at details the main models can be recognised. The shape of the cockpit and cabin windows is the best way to recognise them from the Beechcraft 65 and Piper PA-31.

Cessna 400 series (rectangular windows)

These Cessna 400 series twins have rectangular instead of oval cabin windows, but for the rest they look very similar. Fortunately there are fewer subtypes. The shape of the cockpit and cabin windows is the best way to recognise them from the Beechcraft 65 and Piper PA-31.

Cessna 408 SkyCourier

The Cessna SkyCourier has a nearly square fuselage, that quickly tapers behind the large cargo door on the left side aft of the strut braced wings. On top is a quite tall vertical stabiliser with T-tail. Finally the aircraft has a fixed tricyle landing gear. All in all not difficuly to recognise. (photo Textron Aviation Inc.)

The Cessna 441 looks like the Caravan II, but has smaller, more rounded cabin windows, which are still significantly different from the oval or rectangular ones on the other Cessna 400 series aircraft. Compared to the Caravan II the horizontal stabiliser is attached to the fuselage, instead of the vertical tailplane.

The Citation Mustang looks like a small CitationJet, but there are more differences: the Mustang has ventral fins, wide, oval cabin windows and different cockpit side windows, like that of the Premier I.

The Citation CJ4 is the only CJ family member with a (slightly) swept wing. All others have a straight wing.
