Bigger than the L160, as wide as the L164.
The L-162 was developed in response to customer demand for a two plus two cargo aircraft. Although one can put a bench or jump seat in the back, it is essentially built to carry lots of stuff! The cargo bay measures 58 inches x 43 inches. Even if equipped with an optional jump seat in the back, you will still get 33 inches of head room. The front seating area is identical to the current L164 B/C model, but with an additional 2 inches depth under the instrument panel. Overall, it is 14 inches shorter nose to tail than the L-164. It features a generous cargo door as shown on the model under construction above. Empty weight is 1250 or 1300 lbs depending on equipment and engine. The L-162 is designed for a max. gross weight of 2650 lbs.
