Learn how and when to remove this template message A total of 22, Cessna s were built in the United States, including 21, Commuters and Aerobats. Reims Aviation completed 1, Fs, of which 1, were Commuters and were Aerobats. This was the first year the aircraft featured a swept tail fin, increased baggage area and electrically operated flaps. Design succession[ edit ] The was succeeded in the summer of by the closely related Cessna The is more economical to operate due to the increased TBO time between overhaul of the Lycoming O engine.

Production of the ended in when manufacturing of all Cessna piston singles was suspended. Variants[ edit ] The first model year of the Cessna carried no suffix letter.

It was available as the "" or the upgraded "Commuter". Production commenced late in as the model year. The "patroller" was also introduced in This was a standard with acrylic glass windows on the lower doors, 35 US gallon long-range fuel tanks and a message chute for dropping packages to the ground. Production was in , in and in The "A" had its main landing gear moved aft by two inches to eliminate the problem of the aircraft ending up on its tail while loading people and baggage and also to improve nosewheel steering authority.

It had a new propeller that increased cruise speed by 2 knots 3. The unswept tailfin from previous years was retained for another two years. Elevator and rudder mass balances were increased to reduce flutter potential caused by the less aerodynamic rear fuselage.

The "E" model saw production increase to aircraft. The tailfin was swept back 35 degrees to match the styling of the Cessna and other models. The previously manual flaps were now electrically actuated through a panel-mounted flap switch. The old electric stall warning system was replaced with a pneumatic-type. A total of of the newly styled "F" models were produced. The doors were "bowed" out to give three more inches of shoulder and hip room which was needed in the small cabin.

The "G" model also saw a new short-stroke nose oleo introduced to reduce the drag created by the nosewheel assembly. The previously fitted generator was replaced by a ampere alternator, reflecting the increasing avionics that the planes were being fitted with.

The "G" model was also the first Cessna variant certified for floats. A total of "G" models were built, plus built by Reims as FG. It introduced a new-style center console, designed to improve legroom.

A new electric flap switch was also fitted that allowed "hands-off" retraction of the flaps, but not extension. This did not prevent Cessna from designating an "India" model Cessna however.

The new starter was more "car-like" but not as reliable as the old one and also more expensive to repair. An auxiliary power plug was also made available as an option in , along with "rocker" style electrical switches. Other "aerobatic" features included four-point harnesses for both occupants, dual overhead skylights for upward visibility which, while standard on the Cessna , had not been part of the design jettisonable doors, a more sporty checkerboard paint scheme and removable seat cushions so that parachutes could be worn.

A total of "K" models were built, including AKs. These replaced the previous flat steel leaf spring gear. Also in , the landing and taxi lights were moved from the wing leading edge to the nose bowl to better illuminate the ground.

They were an improvement, but bulb life was reduced due to the heat and vibration of that location. They were moved back to the wing on the model Cessna The "L" also introduced a longer dorsal strake that reached to the rear window. In the "L" received new fuel filler caps to reduce moisture seepage, and better seats and seat tracks.

The "L" model brought in lower seats to provide more headroom for taller pilots. The final "L" model was produced in It introduced the "Commuter II" upgrade package that included many optional avionics and trim items as standard.

The "M" was produced for three years: — Inertia-reel restraints became available as an option with the model year. In the "M" gained a suite of electrical circuit breakers to replace the previous fuses used. It was also fitted with a fully articulated pilot seat as standard equipment this seat had been optional on some earlier models.

The model year was the last for the Cessna It added only "pre-select" flaps, allowing the pilot to set the flaps to any position without the pilot having to hold the switch during flap travel, enabling the pilot to concentrate on other flying duties. Only model Ms were built as production shifted to the improved Cessna in the early part of The many refinements incorporated into the over the years had cost the aircraft a lot of useful load. Reims also built 75 ALs with FM modifications.

Some of the most frequently installed include: Vortex generators and STOL kits that reduce the stall speed of the plane. Corder was killed, but no one else was injured and damage to property on the ground was minimal.

In a Cessna was flown from the United States to South Africa in several stages, crossing the Atlantic along the way. An extra 60 gallon fuel tank was installed beyond the standard
