The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a fixed-wing aircraft that seats four and has a single engine. Its first flight was in 1955 and is currently still in production. There have been more Cessna 172’s built than any other aircraft. In Aviation history, the Cessna 172 is the most successfully sold aircraft in the light aircraft market. By 2008, more than 43,000 have been built. This fine aircraft competes with the Beechcraft Musketeer, Grumman AA-5 series, the Piper Cherokee, and the diamond DA40.
The Cessna 172 is pulled from the Cessna 170. At the beginning of 1955, this plane flew as an improved version of the Cessna 170. The difference between the two aircraft is the modified tricycle landing gear. Instead of building a whole new aircraft, Cessna just added this feature to the 170 which turned it into the Cessna 172. After this modification, the Cessna 172 was a near overnight success on the aviation market.
By the mid-1960s the Cessna’s last aesthetic modification occurred. This entailed the lowering of the rear deck which allowed for an aft window. This new feature was advertised as an “Omni-vision”. There have been a few modifications to the avionics and engines of this light weight aircraft. This included the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit that was added in 2005.
There are optional modifications that the Cessna 172 customer can have on their aircraft. This includes a stronger engine power and an increase in its gross weight. The engine modifications can increase the hp power from 180 to 210. Adding constant speed propellers or the added use of automobile gasoline is an option. There are several other modifications that include fuel tank capacity in the wing tips, baggage compartment tanks, wheel pants (which reduce drag), and better landing and takeoff performance.
The length of the Cessna 172 is 27.2 ft. (8.28 m) and the height is 8.11 ft. (2.72 m). The wingspan is 36.1 ft. (11 m) and the wing area is 174 sq. ft. (16.2 m squared). The airfoil is a modified NACA 2412 and the aspect ratio is 7.32. When completely empty, the aircrafts weight is 1,691 lbs. (767 kg) and the gross weight is 2,450 lbs. (1,111 kg). The fuel capacity is 56 US gallons (212 litres). The engine is a Lycoming IO-360-L2A four cylinder, with 160 hp (120 kW). The engine is horizontally propped on the aircraft. There is a metal 2-bladed propeller on the front. The cruising speed is 122 kn (140 mph, 226 km/h), the stalling speed is 47 kn (54 mph, 87 kn/h), and the aircraft never exceeds 163 kn (188 mph, 302 km/h). the range is 696 (nmi (801 mi, 1,289 km) with a 45 minute reserve. The service ceiling is 113,500 ft. (4,100 m). 72s rate of climb is 721 ft. /min (3.66 m/s).
