Cessna Denali is the newest entry into the Turboprop arena. Cessna new single engine turboprop is set for it’s first flight in 2019 and this aircraft is expected to compete with the likes of Pilatus PC-12 and TBM 930.

The new Denali will be equipped with a GE 1240 shp turbine engine which will power the airplane to cruise north of 300 miles per hour. Cessna Denali does offer similar comfort and cabin space as the Pilatus PC-12 and is certified to fly up to 31,000 ft. That said, The Pilatus is still ahead when it comes to range and versatility. Only time will tell.
