The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a four-seat, single-engine, high wing, fixed-wing aircraft made by the Cessna Aircraft Company. First flown in 1955, more Cessna 172's have been built than any other aircraft of this type.
Measured by its longevity and popularity, the Cessna 172 is the most successful aircraft in history. Cessna delivered the first production models in 1956. As of 2015, Cessna, and its partners, had built more than 43,000. The Skyhawk's main competitors have been the Beechcraft Musketeer and Grumman AA-5 series (neither currently in production), the Piper Cherokee, and, more recently, the Diamond DA40.


The 172P, or Skyhawk P, was introduced in 1981 to solve the reliability problems of the "N" engine. The Lycoming O-320-D2J was a great improvement.

The "P" model also saw the maximum flap deflection decreased from 40 degrees to 30 to allow a gross weight increase from 2,300 lb (1,043 kg) to 2,400 lb (1,089 kg). 


General characteristics
Crew: one pilot, capacity: three passengers
Empty weight: 1,691 lb (767 kg), Gross weight: 2,450 lb (1,111 kg)
Fuel capacity: 43 US gallons with optional 56 US gallons (212 litres)
Powerplant: 1 × Lycoming IO-360-L2A four cylinder, horizontally opposed engine, 160 hp (120 kW)
Propellers: 2-bladed metal


Performance
Cruise speed: 140 mph (122 knots, 226 km/h)
Stall speed: 54 mph (47 knots, 87 km/h)
Range: 696 nmi (801 mi; 1,289 km) with 45 minute reserve, 55% power, at 12,000 ft
Service ceiling: 13,500 ft (4,100 m)

The 172M of 1973–76 gained a drooped wing leading edge for improved low-speed handling. This was marketed as the "camber-lift" wing.

The 1974 172M was also the first to introduce the optional 'II' package which offered higher standard equipment, including a second nav/comm radio, an ADF and transponder. The baggage compartment was increased in size, and nose-mounted dual landing lights were available as an option.

In 1976, Cessna stopped marketing the aircraft as the 172 and began exclusively using the "Skyhawk" designation. This model year also saw a redesigned instrument panel to hold more avionics. Among other changes, the fuel and other small gauges are relocated to the left side for improved pilot readability compared with the earlier 172 panel designs. Total production of "M" models was 7306 over the four years it was manufactured.


It's general characteristics and performance are comparable with the Cessna 172P model.
