CESSNA Skyhawk 172
In 1955, Cessna introduced a revolutionary new utility aircraft, the model 172. This aircraft was a growth of their model 170 four-place aircraft, but its principal difference was tri-cycle landing gear in place of the 170's conventional landing gear (tail wheel). Early 172s had a straight tail and no rear window, just like the 170. Like the 170, it was also powered by a six-cylinder Continental engine.
Starting in 1968, the aircraft began its transformation, first replacing the 145hp six-cylinder for a 160hp four-cylinder Lycoming. The next year saw the swept vertical stabilizer and rear window. Production ran through 1985 with over 42,500 aircraft built, and over half of these were Lycoming powered.
Anyone who has learned to fly or has been taken aloft in a light aircraft was probably aboard a Cessna 172 at one time or another. The aircraft is used for primary training at airports with higher density altitudes, and serves as an advanced trainer for commercial and instrument students. It is also a common first aircraft for many pilots due to its low operating costs and easy flying characteristics.
The Nichimo 1/20 Cessna Skyhawk has been on the market off and on over the last 20 years.
