The Cessna 172 Skyhawk has a long and rich history that spans over six decades. The first model was introduced in 1956 as a tricycle-gear variant of the Cessna 170 taildragger. It featured a 145-hp Continental O-300 engine and a metal wing with fabric-covered ailerons. The Skyhawk quickly became a popular trainer and personal aircraft, thanks to its docile handling, spacious cabin, and good visibility.

Over the years, the Skyhawk underwent many improvements and modifications, such as a swept-back tailfin, a rear window, a larger engine, a constant-speed propeller, retractable landing gear, and various avionics upgrades. Some of the notable models include the 172A (the first to bear the Skyhawk name), the 172B (the first with a swept-back tailfin), the 172D (the first with a rear window), the 172RG Cutlass (the first with retractable gear), and the 172SP (the current production model with a fuel-injected engine and a glass cockpit).

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk has also been used for various special purposes, such as military training, aerial photography, skydiving, banner towing, and even circumnavigation. In fact, the Skyhawk holds the record for the longest flight by a fixed-wing aircraft, when Robert Timm and John Cook flew a modified 172 named Hacienda for 64 days, 22 hours, and 19 minutes in 1958-1959.

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk has long had a reputation
