First introduced in 1948, the Cessna 170 aircraft is a light single-engine model with 145 hp and throughout it’s 8 year production history from 1948-1956, the Cessna Aircraft Company produced well over 5,000 Cessna 170’s. Pilots familiar with the Cessna 170 typically rate the aircraft as having minimal maintenance requirements and above average performance, though the aircraft’s tailwheel arrangement (as opposed to nose wheels) takes newcomers some time to adjust to.
The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a historic aircraft made by Cessna Aircraft not just because more Cessna 172’s have been produced than any other aircraft model in history, but also due to the world record setting endurance flight piloted in a Cessna 172, a record that still stands to this day. This single-engine, fixed-wing aircraft seats four passengers and first came into production in 1956. Originally developed as a variant of the Cessna 170, the Cessna 172 has spawned several variants itself and is still in production today.
