Sat Feb 11, 2006 5:54 am

if somebody could help me, i'm looking for some help with specs on a cessna 414. i need the wingspan of a 414C Ram conversion, i.e. the chancellor with winglets. if you have exact measurements with a link to provide, please let me know. i would like an answer sometime soon if possible.

The specs call for 45.5' tip to tip. Still not that many 414s have the winglet conversion. Our 414G is a 1981 model and was converted early on to RAM winglets and engine instruments (no water cooled engines). The winglet mod was done by one of the two previous owners and we've owned it for something like 15 years now.

thanks for the help! supposedly we're getting a new hangar tenant with a ram 414, but we need dimensions in order to figure out the proper t-hangar for the guy. again, thank you for such prompt answers, i appreciate it.

and 57AZ, how is the performance realistically speaking with the winglets VS just the 402 wing? from what i've heard about the fella moving in, his plane has the full package

It's right on the money. It gives you a lot more usable weight compared to the stock 400 series wing-a big difference when you do as much transcon flying as we do. Also shaves about 5-10 kts off through wing tip drag reduction. The big speed difference is made up by the liquid cooled engines on the RAM conversion-the one thing we don't have. Comparitively speaking, the RAM 414 has better performance than just about any of the C90 series King Airs. Only KA that has better performance that I'm aware of is the E90. Other than that, you'd be looking at a Conquest or KA 100 series to get better performance. Only reason I can figure that the low end KSs are as popular as they are is the cabin space.

As for hangar dimensions, they're the same as the stock C414 other than the wingspan. When we moved out here, the house didn't have a hangar which was a real plus. My parents had a hangar tailor made to our specs (heated and air conditioned workshop partitioned from the main hangar bay) and a hangar capable of storing the 414 plus our 1979 C172. Interior area is just a little bit wider than the door opening which is 50 feet.
