  7. The Cessna 175 was a production model for Cessna Aircraft Company from 1958 through 1962. While commonly thought to be a variation on the Cessna 172, it was actually a much improved model with different wing structure, a different firewall system, and a completely different instrument panel assembly. The earlier 172's were basically tricycle gear versions of the Cessna 170 series airframes. Through it's lifetime the basic airframe design changed once, from the straight cowl, straight tail, tall landing gear 58-59 models to the hump nosed cowl, lowered landing gear, and slanted tail of the 60-62 models. The fastback fuselage was retained through the entire production line. The 175 model had Cessna's newly designed split level instrument panel, placing all of the primary flight instruments directly in front of the pilot, instead of spreading them out over the panel like earlier Cessna's. The 175 is generally considered to be a quiet, smooth runnning airplane thanks to the GO- 300 geared down 4/3 engine driving the 84" propeller at a maximum of 2400 rpm. All of the 175's employ manual flap activation with a bar on the tunnel between the seats, and this makes them great for STOL operations when coupled with an appropriate STOL kit. Skylark was the name given to the deluxe versions of the 175 from late 59-62. The P172D/FP172D The Cessna P172D and French built FP172D were continuations of the 175 Line after the introduction of the "omni-vi-sion" rear windows into the airframe in 1963. They renamed the line the "Skyhawk Powermatic" and attempted to market it without the apparent connection to the 175 Skylark. Few were sold in the US and only 3 FP172D's sold in Europe. P172D's in the US historically sold for more than the 175's during the 2000's, possibly because of the rarity of the model. The R172 Series continued the 175's Type Certificate 3A17 production on through the 1980's, retaining many of the original design innovations such as the step firewall design and the 26.0 gallon aluminum fuel tanks, although the later models received the newer "cuffed" wing leading edge design in the 70's and of course, the entire line was powered by the Continental IO-360 series engines. Here is the GO-300 Engine: Notice the Gearbox mounted to the top of the engine case.
  8. Updated Sept 28, 2020 Email: mail@cessna175.org The Skylark Association, C/O Erik Hoopes- 166029 N 3000 RD, Foster, OK 73434, USA Tel. +1-580-467-0288 The Skylark Association is a loose collection of people with a common interest in the Cessna 175, R172, and P172D model aircraft. The Organization was founded by Erik Hoopes in 2005. While the club has been around continuously since then, it has operated in different legal forms depending on what volunteers were available to operate it. Currently due to lack of interest from eligible Volunteers to serve as an officer core, Erik has chosen to run the organization privately to ensure that all of the valuable resources contributed over the years continues to remain available to all who are interested in participating. There is no fiscal accountability to the members for subscription dues other than guaranteed access to the Forum and Gallery during the period of membership and a pledge to answer your phone calls and emails to help you with your ownership or piloting questions to the extent of his knowledge and the knowledge of people whom he has befriended over the years.
  9. The Best way to join the club is to click on the "Create Account" Button near the top right corner of the homepage. This will allow you to register and pay your annual dues with a major credit, debit card, or paypal account. It will also track your one year subscription and should generate a reminder invoice for you at the end of the period to help you renew on time. Accounts that are not renewed on time will be degraded to disallow members only access but your content (photos, posts, blogs etc..) will remain intact. If you do not log into the website for one year, your account may also be degraded even if you paid dues. If this happens, contact us at our general mailbox mail@cessna175.org for assistance.
