The first flight of small-engine airplane the Cessna took 336 28 1961 February of the year, however, the mass production of this model received only 1963 year. A distinctive feature of this aircraft from the previous models was the presence of two engines with their accommodation atypical, according to the principle "one pull - one push." One of the engines was located at the front of the aircraft, the other was in the back of the fuselage, which somewhat complicates the control plane, but it increased aerodynamic performance and flight-technical quality.

Among other things, the light-engine Cessna 336 Skymaster had a forked tail section, which is quite atypical for previous models, however, experts say that the tail section directly depended on the location of the engines. The landing gear of the aircraft was rigidly fixed, however, American aircraft manufacturers took into account the factor of a decrease in aerodynamic performance, as a result of which, the chassis itself was very strongly pressed against the aircraft body, due to which the influence of harmful factors was minimized, which in turn simplified the production of aircraft, provided simple maintenance and gave the aircraft a lower price.

Because of the specificity of management of this aircraft, model Cessna 336 Skymaster did not enjoy sufficient popular with customers as required a lot of experience in the management of the pilot. However, the aircraft is perfectly suited for passenger traffic over distances up to 1300 kilometers, while two large power plants, in 195 hp each, allow the aircraft to accelerate to 308 km \ h (maximum speed). Among other things, pressurized cabin of the aircraft provided the aircraft the opportunity to rise to a height of 6 thousand meters, which is also of interest to the Air Force around the world.

For eighteen months of production, the assembly line of the American aircraft manufacturing plant got away just 195 aircraft Cessna 336 Skymaster model, then, this version has undergone profound modifications in view of what has been replaced by small-engine plane Cessna 337 Super Skymaster, more practical in terms of operational and offering the best lёtno- specifications.

According to data at the end of 2014 years, throughout the world operated about 90 units of the aircraft, with the greater part is privately owned, and only about 20 aircraft operated by small carriers, both for sightseeing flights, and for movements over short distances, as well as as agents for the feeder airline.
