Cessna 175 Skylark. Photo. Specifications. Modifications


Cessna 175 Skylark (Heavenly Lark) - American single-engine four-seater multi-purpose aircraft, developed in 1957 year and was originally designed to replace 172 model.

First Flight Cessna 175 Skylark held in 1958 year, and almost immediately the plane went into mass production. Unlike the previous model, meaning Cessna 172 Skyhawk, the aircraft possessed a powerful 6-cylinder aircraft engine Continental GO-300, with a capacity of 175 hp.

The overall design of the fuselage of small-engine aircraft Cessna 175 Skylark almost completely resembles Cessna 172 Skyhawk, with the only exception that aircraft designers modified the geometry of the wing of the aircraft, and in addition, the front of the plane there was a bulge, which featured aircraft from 172 model.

Nevertheless, the Cessna 175 Skylark light aircraft did not find great popularity among customers, and the reason for this was the low reliability of the new engine, which quite often led to the need for an emergency or emergency landing. The main feature of the new Continental GO-300 engine was that the rotation to the propeller was not transmitted directly, as in previous models, but through the transmission, which in turn was less reliable. In addition, the higher price compared to the 172 model also negatively affected the sales of the Cessna 175 Skylark.
