Cessna 172 Skyhawk

Cessna 172 Skyhawk  The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a four seat, single engine, high fixed wing aircraft. First flown in 1955 and still in production, more Cessna 172’s have been built than any other aircraft. 

Early 172’s were similar in appearance to the 170, with the same straight aft fuselage and tall gear legs, all thought the 172 had a straight vertical tail while the 170 had a rounded fin and rudder. Later 172 versions incorporated revised landing gear and sweptback tail which is still in use today. The final aesthetic development, in the mid 1960s, was a lowered rear deck that allowed an aft window. Cessna advertised this added rear visibility as “omni-vision.” This air frame configuration has remained almost unchanged since then, except for updates in avionics and engines, including the Garmin G1000 cockpit in 2005. Production had been halted in the mid 1980s, but was resumed in 1996.

Piper Warrior

Piper Warrior  The Piper A-28 Cherokee is a family of light aircraft designed for flight training, air taxi and personal use, built by Piper Aircraft. All members of the PA-28 family are all-metal, unpressurized, four-seat, single-engine piston-powered airplanes with low-mounted wings and tricycle landing gear. All PA-28 aircraft have a single door on the co-pilot side, which is entered by stepping on the wing. Piper has created variations within the Cherokee family by installing engines ranging from 140 to 300 horsepower. In 1978, Piper upgraded the Warrior to 160 horsepower (119 kW) PA-28-161, changing its name to Cherokee Warrior II.

Piper Arrow

Piper Arrow  In 1967, Piper introduced the PA-28-180 Arrow. This aircraft featured a constant-speed propeller and retractable landing gear and was powered by a 180 horsepower (134 kW) Lycoming IO-360-B1E engine. The engine was upgraded to a Lycoming IO-360-C1C of 200 horsepower (149 kW) in 1971 and the designation was changed to PA-28R-200. In 1968, the cockpit was modified to replace the “push-pull” style engine controls with levers. In addition, a third window was added to each side, giving the fuselage the more modern look seen in current production.
