Cessna introduced the Cessna 175 Skylark in 1958 with the intention of bridging the gap between the Cessna 172 and the more powerful Cessna 182. A distinctive feature of the 175 Skylark was the single Continental G-300 engine, which propels the propeller through a reducing gearbox. However, due to reliability issues with the engine, the aircraft received negative feedback at the time. The airframe was constructed entirely of aluminium alloy, featuring an all-metal design, and was engineered to accommodate an increased gross weight. The Cessna 175 Skylark was equipped with a tricycle landing gear arrangement made of spring steel.
