The Cessna 180 was first produced in 1953 and ended production in 1981. This aircraft was either a six or eight seat plane and had standard fixed gear. The Cessna 180 is still a very popular aircraft for operations in rough terrain where landing strips aren’t prepared, better known as bush flying. The Cessna 180 was a more powerful counterpart to the Cessna
170. The early model Cessna 180 was equipped with two side windows and later models were designed with three windows. These aircraft
were also known to be used as float planes. The early Cessna 180 sales were equipped with a 230 horsepower engine and had a gross weight of two thousand five hundred fifty pounds.
