Cessna 300 \ 350 Corvalis is a small-engine plane equipped with a motor and is capable of carrying on its board to 4 people. Production of light-engine aircraft Cessna 350 Corvalis started relatively recently - in 1998 year and continued throughout 12 years 2010 year until there was a decision to stop production of this model.

The production of light aircraft Cessna 350 Corvalis began with the appearance of the Cessna 1998 Columbia model in September 300. The new aircraft was assembled at an aircraft manufacturing plant in Colombia and that is why it received this initial name. The new aircraft was equipped with one Continental IO-550N engine, which allows developing a power of 310 hp, new and modern avionics, and also, the aircraft allowed to carry on board up to 4 people - one pilot and three passengers. The sturdy design of the fuselage allowed the aircraft to accelerate to a speed of 346 km / h (maximum speed) and travel over distances of over two thousand kilometers, which was quite enough for private use. However, the new Cessna 300 Corvalis was not popular, mainly due to the incredibly high price of more than half a million dollars, and over the entire production cycle, the American aircraft manufacturer Cessna managed to produce only 27 aircraft of this model.

At the beginning of 2003, American aircraft designers presented a modified version - Cessna 350 Corvalis, which has not only a number of external differences, but also a number of improvements in terms of flight performance, although insignificant. The powerplant of the Cessna 350 Corvalis aircraft was not changed mainly due to the fact that it was reliable enough and simple in terms of maintenance, but the new glass cockpit allowed the pilots to obtain more detailed information about the state of flight, and a slightly modified wing profile of the aircraft reduced the aerodynamic Resistance, in view of which the aircraft could develop a high speed. Initially, it was assumed that aircraft builders would fix the situation with a small space inside the plane, but it was decided to abandon this idea due to the need to change the fuselage of the aircraft itself, which would once again significantly increase the price of the aircraft

Model Cessna 350 Corvalis enjoyed greater popularity than the Cessna 300 Corvalis - of 7 years of production, with 2003 on 2010 year, was released 125 aircraft of this version, however, is a huge price (558 thousand dollars on 2010 year) forced the customers to choose other, more effective in this regard, small-engine aircraft, worth many times cheaper.

Today, most airplanes Cessna 300 \ 350 Corvalis is privately owned.
