THE FINEST PISTON-ENGINED AIRLINER OF ALL TIME
Designed at a crossroads in aeronautical science the DC-6 is the last of a breed of highly developed aircraft that existed immediately before the jet. Almost 60 years later the DC-6 demonstrates the imagination of its creators in conceiving an aircraft that can still perform effortlessly in the modern world. For it is not merely a seductive museum piece, but a capable aircraft meeting the highest standards of operation and able to cross oceans in uncommon style.
Cloudmaster Limited has taken perhaps the best known DC-6 of all and assembled a team of experts to completely restore and operate it for no more than eight private owners.
The engineers charged with accomplishing this task are among the few to have undertaken such a project before, having previously completed the meticulous refurbishment of the only comparable DC-6 in existence, and sharing decades of experience in both classic and modern aircraft maintenance. Their close attention to detail matches craftsmanship and skill with a willingness to embrace new technology where appropriate.
The Cloudmaster DC-6 exists for a sense of occasion, for the journey as well as the destination, to be enjoyed by the discerning and the inquisitive.
The DC-6 has huge presence at any airport. Standing taller than almost every other aircraft around it, its classic proportions and gleaming propellers set it completely apart from the commonplace. Originally intended to carry 102 passengers in fast, air conditioned comfort, the Cloudmaster DC-6 will have spacious accommodation for just 28.
