One of the Most Popular Aircraft of all Time!
Cessna 172 Skyhawk is one of the most popular general aviation aircraft ever
created. Tracing its roots back to the original production lineage of the late
1950's, the 172 Skyhawk has undergone many changes.
When the Cessna
single engine facility re-emerged in July of 1996, the 172R Skyhawk was reborn.
New features included a fuel injected Textron Lycoming IO-360-L2A engine with
dual engine driven vacuum pumps, epoxy corrosion proofing, stainless steel
control cables, thicker windows and new acoustic soundproofing. Cessna claims
the 172R is significantly quieter than the O-320 it replaced, and it can produce
its maximum power at just 2400rpm.
