Cessna 195 Businessliner is an upgraded version of the model Cessna 190More carefully adapted to the personal use of private individuals.

Cessna 195 Businessliner their appearance is almost completely repeats the features of the previous model of the family, with the only exception that the plane has a Length of the nose, improving aerodynamic performance (depending on the year).

The mass production of light-engine aircraft Cessna 195 Businessliner started the second half of the year 1947 and lasted for seven years, until the middle of 1957 years. During this period, the production line aircraft company descended about 860 aircraft of this model, of which it is currently operated by a few dozens.

The base production model Cessna 195 Businessliner was equipped with a radial engine piston semitsilindrovym Jacobs R-755-A2, capacity 300 hp, allowing the aircraft to accelerate to its maximum speed of 298 km \ h, breaking distance to 1287 kilometers, which is quite enough for individual use. Squat design of the aircraft Cessna 195 Businessliner made him a well-managed and highly maneuverable, and in addition, it reduces drag and improves aerodynamics.

However, in 1950 year, the American aircraft manufacturers have come to the conclusion that the need to replace the power plant more efficient, resulting in, a model Cessna 195A Businessliner, equipped engine Jacobs L-4MB capacity 245 hp, easier to maintain and more reliable. In addition, modification Cessna 195A Businessliner had the opportunity to replace the standard chassis to float, allowing the land on water.

In developing the Cessna 195A Businessliner, aircraft manufacturers have decided not to change the design of the chassis. Because all things being equal, the system was solid and allowed to land on the runway or any other area nominally required extent, even with a strong side wind and roll in 15 degrees.

In 1952 year, it started production of the Cessna 195B Businessliner, aircraft engine equipped with a perfect byuolee Jacobs R-755B2, 275 hp capacity that provides the most efficient fuel consumption at a reasonable airspeed and wing loading. In addition, Cessna's engineers improved the design of the flap, increasing its area by half, giving the aircraft better handling and maneuverability.

In addition, the American aircraft manufacturer Cessna has created several modified versions of the aircraft Cessna 195B Businessliner for the US Air Force. We are talking mainly about models such as Cessna LC-126A and Cessna LC-126C and Cessna U-20A (a modified version of the Cessna LC-126A), intended for the transport of persons and senior commanders.
