The four-seat, single-engine Cessna 172 Skyhawk is probably the most popular flight training aircraft in the world. The first production models were delivered in 1957, and it is still in production today; more than 35,000 have been built…
The 172 was a direct descendant of the Cessna 170, which used conventional taildragger. Early 172s looked almost identical to the 170, with the same straight aft fuselage and tall gear legs, but later versions incorporated revised landing gear, a lowered rear deck, and an aft window. Cessna advertised this added rear visibility as “Omnivision”.
The final structural development, in the mid-1960s, was the sweptback tail still used today.
