Used aeroplanes are good for your budget and depending on their condition they can give you a good return on investment. If you have decided to buy the classic Cessna that’s on sale, then you should first read up some information about its background and characteristics.
Cessna planes have some models that are preferred by first-time flyers due to their small size and lightweight. It is a lightweight aircraft that is quite easy to handle. Therefore, many people use it for sightseeing purposes too.
Cessna was a result of a common trend among plane manufacturers to produce small aeroplanes; the reason being a wrong marketing prediction that the Second World War veterans will create a high demand for small planes.
Cessna aeroplanes are two-seater planes (one crew and one passenger) with a single engine. They are categorised as light general aviation aircraft.
Used aeroplane buyers who are not very experienced prefer Cessna as it is easy to fly and low on maintenance. With 85 horses, this plane is as powerful as any standard car. 140 mph is the average speed of Cessna, making it a great pleasure to fly.
To take off, a Cessna needs only 236 meters (750 ft) ground roll, and while landing it requires only 71 meters (460 ft), thus, making it the perfect plane for private use. However, its small fuel tank of 22 gals is a disadvantage. At 65% power, the aircraft can fly for about four hours at a stretch. In the case of used aeroplanes, this may not be true depending upon the level of maintenance. Cessna 140 is also considered an economy plane as it utilises only four gallons of fuel in an hour.
