Cabin DOOR NOT LOCKED light on the cockpit annunciator panel

An optional wide cabin door is available on some Conquests and can only be opened from inside the aircraft after the main cabin door has been opened.

The wide cabin door option opens outward expanding the standard entrance from 22 to 43 inches.

The emergency exit door is located on the right hand side of the fuselage directly behind the co-pilot seat and incorporateds the row 2 window.

The emergency exit door is designed to be unlocked and pulled into the cabin before being discarded out through the emergency exit prior to disembarking.

This is due to the design of the aircraft structure for pressurisation and cabin comfort.

Instructions for the use of the emergency exit are clearly placarded on the door and is also described on the Cessna produced Safety Emergency Briefing Cards carried on all company Conquests.

The rear section of the cabin can be used for stowage of baggage and is divided into 3 baggage areas for weight and balance purposes.

Each baggage area has its own weight limitation but combined a total of 900 lbs (409 kgs) can be carried in the rear of the cabin. This is the only pressurised baggage area.

One important limitation that must be observed with the rear baggage area is the loading of cargo in the aft cabin floor area.

The lower portion of the lower shelf area houses the vent for cabin temperature sensor which controls the air cycle machine. If this vent is blocked accidently the cabin temperature controls will be rendered useless.

Do not cover this vent located in the aft cabin floor area. The air-conditioning will not work correctly otherwise.

Tail section

The tail section of the Conquest is unpressurised and provides for attachment of the empennage and provides space for avionics and oxygen equipment.

Components for the Integrated Flight Control System (IFCS) and the ELT are also located in the tail section of the fuselage.

Avionics bay access panel


The wing consists of 3 major sections, a centre wing section and 2 outboard sections.

The centre section consists of 3 spars and associated ribs and skins, the main landing gear and attachment for the inboard section of the flap.

The outer wing sections are of a 2 spar construction with associated ribs and skins and forms an integral wet wing for the aircraft fuel tanks.

Each wing stores 240.75 USG (912.5 ltrs) for a total fuel capacity of 481.5 USG (1825ltrs)


The empennage includes the Vertical and horizontal stabilisers. Both of these components are of a typical spar, rib, stringer and skin construction.

The rudder and elevators are aerodynamically balanced and all contain trim tabs.
