Is This Cessna Classic For You?
Due to the popularity of the 140, Cessna released its first 4 seater tail dragger in late 1948 and called it the "170". It was equipped with a 145 horsepower Contental O-300 along with increased fuel capacity.
Despite the fact that this popular aircraft was made over 50 year ago, there are still over 2,000 of the 5,000 created that are still in service today! That is pretty impressive. Also, the 170 is in great demand due to the fact that aircraft buyers like to restore them and keep them.
There was somewhat of an evolution of this model over the years - the base 170 and then the 170 B, 170 C & the military version which was the 305. Other then the military version, the model changes were somewhat minor.
The 170 was defiantly NOT designed for speed! The performance specifications will tell you that you might get 105 knots of cruise speed out of it in perfect weather conditions. It has similar speeds as the Cessna 150/152.
This aircraft has a very strong following and will probably always be a very popular Cessna aircraft. It is fairly easy to fly, very cheap to run & parts are pretty easy to find. As well, cause it is a Cessna - most mechanics will know how to fix it.
Bottom line: If you are looking for a used tail dragger then this is a great place to start! And if your looking to restore an aircraft then this model is one of the best!
