Aero Commander 560A

The Aero Commander 560 is an American light-transport aircraft developed as a successor to the Aero Commander 520 during the early 1950's, replacing the 520 in production in 1954. The Aero Commander 560 is a twin-engined light transport high-wing cantilever monoplane powered by two Lycoming GO-480-B six-cylinder horizontally-opposed air-cooled engines providing a top speed of 336 kmh and a range of 1170 km. The Aero Commander 560 carries a pilot and co-pilot with dual controls and up to five passengers (usually three), or freight.

Piper

In the single engine category, the Piper is another name to reckon with. With almost all its aircraft displaying the low wing design, (with some exceptions like the Piper Cub), the Piper flyer has its sport aircraft appeal and soft landings with the addition of enhanced suspension systems over other aircraft in its class.

 

PA-28 Cherokee

The Piper PA-28 Cherokee is a family of light aircraft designed for flight training, air taxi and personal use, built by Piper Aircraft.

 

All members of the PA-28 family are all-metal, unpressurized, four-seat, single-engine piston-powered airplanes with low-mounted wings and tricycle landing gear. All PA-28 aircraft have a single door on the co-pilot side, which is entered by stepping on the wing.

 

The first PA-28 received its type certificate from the FAA in 1960 and the series remains in production in 2009. Current models are the Arrow and Warrior III. The Archer was discontinued in 2009.

 

Competition for the PA-28 series include the Cessna 172, the Grumman American AA-5 series and the Beechcraft Musketeer.

 

Piper has created variations within the Cherokee family by installing engines ranging from 140 to 300 hp (105-220 kW), providing turbocharging, offering fixed or retractable landing gear, fixed-pitch or constant speed propellers, and stretching the fuselage to accommodate 6 people. The larger, six-seat variant of the PA-28 is generally the PA-32; earlier versions were known as the "Cherokee Six," and a PA-32 version is still in production today under the model name Saratoga.

Cessna 172

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a four-seat, single-engine, high-wing fixed-wing aircraft. First flown in 955 and still in production, more Cessna 172s have been built than any other aircraft.

 

Measured by its longevity and popularity, the Cessna 172 is the most successful mass produced light aircraft in history. The first production models were delivered in 956 and they are still in production. As of 2008, more than 43,000 had been built. The Skyhawk's main competitors have been the Beechcraft Musketeer and Grumman AA-5 series (neither in production), the Piper Cherokee and, more recently, the Diamond DA40.

 

The Cessna 72 started life as a tricycle landing gear variant of the taildragger Cessna 170, with a basic level of standard equipment. The first flight of the prototype was in November 955 The 172 became an overnight sales success and over 400 were built in 956, its first full year of production.

 

Early 172s were similar in appearance to the 170, with the same straight aft fuselage and tall gear legs, although the 172 had a straight vertical tail while the 170 had a rounded fin and rudder Later 172 versions incorporated revised landing gear and the sweptback tail which is still in use todayThe final aesthetic development in the mid-960s, was a lowered rear deck that allowed an aft window. Cessna advertised this added rear visibility as "Omni-Vision". This airframe configuration has remained almost unchanged since then, except for updates in avionics and engines, including the Garmin G000 glass cockpit in 2005 Production had been halted in the mid-980s, but was resumed in 996 with the 60 hp (20 kW) Cessna 172R Skyhawk and was supplemented in 998 by the 80 hp (35 kW) Cessna 172S Skyhawk SP.

Cessna 152

The Cessna 52 is an American two-seat, fixed tricycle gear, general aviation airplane, used primarily for flight training and personal use.

 

First delivered in 977 as the 978 model year, the 52 was a modernization of the proven Cessna 50 design. The 52 was intended to compete with the new Beechcraft Skipper and Piper Tomahawk, both of which were introduced the same year. Additional design goals were to improve useful load through a gross weight increase to 670 lbs (757 kg), decrease internal and external noise levels and run better on the then newly introduced 100LL fuel.
