Cessna 170.

The Cessna 170 is a general aviation aircraft produced by the Cessna Aircraft Company between 1948 and 1956. Over 5,000 were built, and over 2,000 are still accounted for today. The Cessna 170 landing gear is a taildragger configuration. It was replaced by the Cessna 172 which became the most popular light plane in history. The Cessna 172 features a tricycle undercarriage landing gear configuration.

Variants

The earliest Cessna 170's were essentially four-seat versions of the popular Cessna 140 two-seater, equipped with a more powerful piston engine and additional fuel tanks.

Beginning in late 1948, Cessna began selling the Cessna 170A, an all-metal Cessna 170 with dihedral-less wings.

In 1950, the United States Air Force, Army and Marines began using the military variant of the Cessna 170, the O-1 Bird Dog, as a forward air control and reconnaissance aircraft.

In 1952, the Cessna 170B was released. It featured new flaps, a new tailplane, wing dihedral, and other aerodynamic improvements over the 170 and 170A.

Cessna replaced the 170 with the Cessna 172 in 1956.
