Cessna's Conquest I is one of the easiest transitions to turbine power for any multiengine, instrument-rated pilot. The airplane is born of the 400-series line of twin Cessnas, known for its easygoing flight manners, comfortable cabin, and generous baggage bins. It is an ideal turboprop for an individual or small company with the need to transport as many as six passengers at 250 knots as far as 800 nm. The Model 425 Conquest I, dimensionally, is the size of a 421C Golden Eagle. But the similarities between the Golden Eagle piston twin and the Conquest mostly end there. The Conquest is powered by two 450-shaft-horsepower Pratt & Whitney PT6s instead of 375-horsepower geared Continental piston engines. Plus, the 425 is substantially beefed up and utilizes more robust systems.
