Is It Worth Buying A Cessna 180 That Is For Sale Verses The Smaller 170?
Cessna 180 for sale - It is the "step up" model from the Cessna 170. The main difference is the fact that the 180 was given a 225 horsepower engine vs the 145 in the 170. It really did not make a big difference as far as cruise speed goes, BUT it did as far as the "work horse" factor goes.
Though the usable load factor is not much vs the 170, having the 225 horsepower allows you the option of flying on floats and on ski's. Sure you can do it with the 170 BUT that extra 80 horsepower really helps when your carrying a full-load on a hot day.
The 180 was manufactured from 1953 all the way to 1981. In total there were in excess of 6,000 made. Although the 182 took over as far as the current model, the old 180 is still VERY MUCH in demand as it is such a great work horse and the you can usually pick one up for much less then a 182.
As well, a lot of pilots still prefer the tail dragger over the tricycle gear aircraft. Having the tail dragger allows you to land on grass strips, dirt strips and other hard to land areas such as ice strips.
If your in the market for a very powerful aircraft for sale and are somewhat interested in restoring one, you might want to look at buying a Cessna 180 that is for sale. As far as the performance specifications go they are not much different then 170, but the additional horsepower is worth it if you can justify the difference in fuel consumption.
