Cessna 185 Skywagon

The Cessna 185 Skywagon, a light, single-engined general aviation aircraft crafted by Cessna, commenced production in 1961. Cessna undertook a redesign of the model 180 to create the aircraft, reinforcing the fuselage and incorporating a vertical fin into the Cessna 185. Initially propelled by a Continental Motors IO-470-F engine, the aircraft underwent an upgrade in 1966, adopting the improved Continental IO-520-D powerplant. The Skywagon offered various optional features, such as floats or skis, spray booms, and a cargo pod fitted beneath the sub-fuselage for additional payload.
