The Cessna 172 series, introduced in 1956, represents a single-engine, fixed-wing aircraft. The early models of the Cessna 172 closely resembled the Cessna 170 in appearance. In 1983, Cessna unveiled the latest iteration of the original aircraft, the Cessna 172Q Cutlass. Building upon the design of its predecessor, the Cessna 172P, this variant featured a Lycoming O-360-A4N engine with 180 horsepower, enhancing the cruise speed to an optimal 122 knots. Additionally, the design allowed for an extra 100 lbs of load/baggage space. Remarkably, Cessna ceased production of the 172 line just three years after its introduction.
