The Cessna Model 411 is a 1960s American twin-engined, propeller driven light aircraft built by Cessna Aircraft. It was that company's largest business aircraft when it first flew in 1962, other than a four-engined airliner developed during the 1950s, which was not put into development.

It has two 340 hp (254 kW) Continental GTSIO-520-C engines with three-bladed propellers. It has a retractable tricycle landing gear and an airstair door. The prototype first flew on 18 July 1962. During 1965 Cessna developed two generally similar and lower-cost versions, the Model 401 and Model 402. Production of the 411 finished in 1968. A pressurised version of the 411 was developed as the Cessna 421.
The Cessna 411 was mainly sold to business users in the United States. Other examples were exported to many overseas countries including Argentina, Australia, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. The type remains in operational service in several countries in 2014.
