Many air taxi firms choose the Cessna 310. Some advantages of the aircraft over its contemporaries were its speed, operating costs, and after market modifications such as the Robertson STOL kits. The Piper Aztec, Beechcraft Baron, Piper Seneca, and some models of the Aero Commander were competitors of the aircraft. The 310 was often selected by the US Air Force as a light utility aircraft for transport and administrative support. Today the aircraft is operated by private individuals and companies, as well as air charter companies and small feeder airlines.
