The Cessna 152 is a two-seat single engined high wing light aircraft of all-metal construction. Cessna Aircraft Company began in the mid 1950s with the development of the Model 142, a tricycle-geared two place trainer. The Model 142 was based on the tail-wheel Model 140. After the Cessna 142 N34258 was flown first in September 1957, the Model 142 was renamed Model 150. During 1959, production of the Cessna Model 150 started. In 1977, the Cessna Model 150 was replaced in production by the basically similar Cessna Model 152. Improvements included a more powerful Avco Lycoming 0-235 engine giving 108-hp, plus installation and cowling changes to reduce engine noise and vibration, together with a McCauley propeller of a modified blade section. Between 1977 and 1986 the Cessna Model 152 was available in four versions; the standard Model 152, the slightly heavier Model 152 II with a package of factory installed avionics and omni-directional light beacon, the further improved Model 152 Trainer with other improvements including an intercom system and transponder, and the Model 152 Aerobat with the same aerobatic capabilities as the 150 Aerobat. When production ended in 1986 a total 7.482 Model l52 and Aerobats were manufacrured, including 640 built under license by Reims Aviation S.A. in France.
The ICAO Aircraft Type Designator for the Cessna 152 is C152.
