The first Independence-produced single-engine piston came off
the line in November 1996 following Cessna's 10-year hiatus from
producing single-engine piston aircraft. Cessna had ceased
production in the mid-1980s due to rising liability costs and
resumed production after the 1994 passage of the U.S. General
Aviation Revitalization Act.
In total, Cessna has produced more than 154,000 single-engine
pistons since the company's founding in 1927.
The Cessna 182 and Turbo 182 Skylane is a four-place
single-engine, high-wing piston aircraft featuring a Textron
Lycoming IO-540 engine, advanced Garmin G1000 avionics and a range
of more than 900 miles. When fitted with a turbocharger, the top
speed jumps from 150 knots to 176 knots, or about 202 mph.
Cessna produces the Skyhawk, Skylane, Stationair, Corvalis,
Corvalis TT and Citation Mustang at its facility in Independence,
located southeast of the company's headquarters in Wichita.
