Cessna 152 - American single-engined light aircraft used for private air transport and pilot training. The plane is a deeply modernized version Cessna 150With a more powerful piston engine, improved technical and flight performance, as well as the performance of the new design, providing the most efficient aerodynamic characteristics.

Development of the Cessna 152 began in mid-70-ies of the last century, and in 1977 year, the plane was first presented to the public, and, aircraft of this model almost immediately gained its popularity because at a low enough cost, the aircraft has a high reliability and quite lёtnymi acceptable qualities. The mass production of the aircraft Cessna entered the 152 1978 year and period 1985 year, Cessna Aircraft Company produced 7584 units of air technology.

The main reason for the production of Cessna 152 was the need to replace previously issued Cessna 150, as well as ensuring competitiveness of small-engine aircraft from other manufacturers, in particular, are meant Beechcraft Model 77 Skipper and Piper PA-38 Tomahawk, surpassing Cessna 150 on a variety of criteria.

Initially, all aircraft were equipped with the Cessna 152 4-tsilimndrovymi piston engines Lycoming O-235, 110 power in horsepower, while, because of the quality approach, it was possible to reduce fuel consumption. However, due to a number of problems, starting with the year 1983, in the light-engine aircraft the Cessna 152 steel mounted motors Lycoming O-235-L2C, with a capacity of 108 hp - Simpler and more efficient in terms of performance characteristics, but less power.

One of the most spectacular modifications of the Cessna 152 aircraft is the Cessna A152 Aerobat model, designed primarily for various aerobatics. The fuselage of this model was specially reinforced with additional struts, and a number of models used more advanced piston engines with a capacity of 125 hp. A total of 315 units of the Cessna A152 Aerobat model were built, moreover, most of them continue to operate to this day due to the reliability of the developed systems.

In addition, there are still two versions: Cessna F152 and Cessna F152 Aerobat, distinctive feature is the availability of advanced avionics systems, without changing any flight-technical and structural characteristics.

In view of the fact that the Cessna 152 board can accommodate only one passenger, these aircraft are used primarily individuals, as well as schools for pilot training, including on Russian territory.
