The chassis of the aircraft Cessna 400 almost has not been changed and still remains zhёstkozakreplёnnym, however, aircraft manufacturers have changed the clearance and make the whole system more solid chassis and perfect.

Aircraft Cessna 400 can be used both as a private aircraft for the transport of passengers and as a sports aircraft, as adapted wing profile makes this aircraft quite maneuverable.

Just a few years after the release of the basic production model, the American aircraft manufacturer Cessna presented a modified version - the Cessna 400 TT Corvalis, whose flight performance was optimized, which improved the controllability of the aircraft and allowed the aircraft to accelerate to higher speeds. Nevertheless, as before, there was a problem with the cost of the aircraft - the price of the aircraft in mid-2013 was $ 733, which naturally did not satisfy consumers. Among other things, the cramped cabin did not make passengers feel comfortable, especially when it came to long flights.
