EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016: General Aviation - Cessna Joins Textron

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo of the great names in general aviation, Cessna Aircraft, became part of Textron Aviation in 1992.  The acquisition was a boon for Textron's business jet aspirations, and the Citation series continues to enjoy production success.  Textron leads in general aviation production, and the 172 Skyhawk series is among the top selling general aviation aircraft with about 150 units sold annually in recent years.  New aircraft prices have climbed significantly, and the pre-owned market is where many of the piston aircraft are purchased.  

As expected, we found a nice selection of Cessna Aircraft models during the week, and we present some examples here in order of model numbers:


C172 Skyhawk

C177 Cardinal

C182 Skylane

C185 Skywagon

C206 Stationair

C207 Stationair 7

C208 Caravan/Grand Caravan

C210 Centurion


C337 Skymaster
