The Type 6A shuttlecraft was a Federation shuttlecraft that was in service to Starfleet in the late 24th century. At least five were assigned to the USS Cerritos, and at least three to the USS Vancouver.
The type of shuttle was similar in appearance to the Type 8, but closer in size to the Galileo-type shuttlecraft. Its nacelles were similar in design to those on the California-class ships.
In 2380, Type 6A shuttlecraft were used to transport crew to their assigned ships after a transfer. (LD: "Second Contact")
Also in that year, at least one shuttle of this class was equipped with a new type of blast shield. (LD: "Envoys")
