This model began to be designed during the Second World War, however, the first flight of the light-engine Cessna 190 aircraft took place after the end of hostilities. Initially, the aircraft was supposed to be used as an aircraft for the transportation of high-ranking officials and persons, which was done. Somewhat later, from the middle of 1948, the aircraft began to be produced for private use, and, despite the rather high cost of the aircraft, the Cessna 190 model was very popular among wealthy and wealthy citizens of both the United States and Canada, and Europe.

The aircraft was entirely made of aviation aluminum, but its design was more solid and stiffer than previous models, and there were several main reasons for this. The first, and perhaps the most important, reason was concealed in a powerful power unit consisting of a seven-cylinder 4-stroke radial piston engine with an output of 240 hp capable of accelerating the aircraft to a speed of 280 km / h, which, given the wingspan and their wings Area, created dangerous loads on the fuselage. The second reason for increasing the strength properties of the design of the Cessna 190 was its original military purpose.

The interior decoration of the cabin was quite good - on board the Cessna 190 can accommodate up to 3 passengers and a small amount of cargo, moreover, the distance between the seats is quite large, which later transferred this aircraft into the category of classic light-engine business class aircraft.

A number of changes and engineering innovations, compared with the previous models, and the chassis has undergone an aircraft is allowed to make a safe landing even with 15-degree roll. In addition, the design of the chassis was designed for heavy loads, which is why the plane could land even without a runway and strong side wind. In addition, due to the squat design of the aircraft, managed to improve aerodynamic performance, thereby reducing drag and lowering fuel consumption.

The maximum flight range of small-engine aircraft Cessna 190 1140 of kilometers, which in turn is suitable for posts with big cities.

Issue aircraft Cessna 190 lasted between 1947 years of 1954 years, while in the production was running about 320 aircraft of this model, with a small issue was related mainly to the fact that the model Cessna 195 had better flight performance with virtually equivalent value.
