Cessna Model 152

When production of the Models 120 and 140 ended, Cessna concentrated upon the development of four-seat aircraft of similar configuration. It was not until the first flight of the Cessna Model 150, during September 1957, that the company re-entered the two-seat lightplane market. An all-metal braced high-wing monoplane, of similar configuration to the Model 140, this Model 150 differed primarily by the introduction of non-retractable tricycle landing gear, the installation of dual controls being optional, and by having a 75kW Continental O-200 engine.

Production began in August 1958 and by the time it ended during 1977 a total of 23,836 had been built, this figure including 1,754 built in France by Reims Aviation under the designation Reims F-150. Just before the end of production the aircraft had been available in Model 150 Standard, Commuter, Commuter II and Aerobat versions. The differences between the first three represented varying standards of installed equipment, and there was also a wide range of optional avionics and equipment available. The aerobat embodied structural changes permitting a licence in the Aerobatic category for load factors of +6g and -3g at full gross weight, its aerobatic capability allowing such manoeuvres as aileron, barrel and snap rolls, chandelles, loops and vertical reverses.

In 1977 the Cessna 150 range was replaced on the production lines by the basically similar Cessna Model 152. Improvements included a more powerful Avco Lycoming O-235 engine giving 81kW, 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 aircraft 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 ceased in 1986, 7,482 Model 152 and Aerobats had been produced including 640 built under licence in France by Reims Aviation.

Two days ago I took my granddaughter Jaydn on her first trip in our C150 C-FQVZ -in fact her second (ever) lightplane trip inasmuch as a few days earlier she had flown in C-FDGC our DeHavilland DH82C Tiger Moth. She actually handflew "Whitie" successfully for some 20 minutes without any more than verbal advice from me. The C150 is an amazing trainer when you consider that a 13 year old girl who has never even driven a car can accomplish this.
What a plane! What a granddaughter!

When I was eleven, I was starting to get into trouble, so my dad, a weatherman, took me to the airport with him. A lot of pilots took me up. Finally a flight instructor talked to my dad, and next thing I knew, I was getting flying instructions. This was the plane I learned on. It didn't have any bad habits. I still love it 52 years later.

Tom Ridyard, 14.01.2012

I called my 150J, my Johnny Cash airplane. It was rebuilt out of several different years.I had to sell when the IRS needed more money than I had. :(

I learned how to fly in this airplane back in 1970, great fun, and an easy airplane to fly.

J. William Love, Jr., 28.07.2011

I owned a 1959 150 for several years back in the 1980's. Sometimes I wish I still owned it, but since I am now 83 years of age, probably best that I do not. It was a red and white fastback with straight tail, but tricycle gear. I really enjoyed that plane, and often took friends for flights in the Houston area. Last I heard, the plane was owned by a doctor in Colorado. They seem to just keep on flying.

Clyde, 09.06.2011

Thanks Rob!

Sorry I just now have gotten around to replying.

What you said about the difference between sim and stick (or yoke, whatever) time I understand.

I have now got ~500 hours sim and a measly 1 hour real time in a Liberty XL2. The instructor said that I did quite well for a first flight, which he attributed to my sim time and reading of private pilot ground school.

I guess what my question really was had more to do with the dream of learning to fly in my own airplane than much else.

The example you gave about your friend and the Aeronca is an example of why it is illegal to do that type of thing.

My last comment here used donot@call.com as my email. I have since setup a commercial mail account. If anyone wants to email me instead of posting a comment, please use Clyde in the salutation so that I know where it came from.

It is amazing how time flys by.

Fiat Lux!

The C150 rented for $12/hr dual instruction, wet, in 1964. $7/hr solo & $5/hr for the instructor. This was at Hickam Areo Club on Wheeler Air Base Oahu, Hawaii. Go Navy.

I flew a CAP 150 from Gunnison to Denver a number of times in the early 70's, we also had Super-Cub's and not so super-Cub's that we flew searches with on a pretty regular basis. The 182's were the best ride but the Bird-Dog was the most fun.

Rob, 13.01.2011

A zero-time pilot? I would go to the local airport (the FBO) and talk to a CFI (instructor pilot). Years ago I had a friend buy a plane (no actual experience) and thought he could teach himself to fly an Aeronca. He couldn't and paid for it with his life. The similarity between sim time and real stick time is like the difference in having an Internet girlfriend and having a real girlfriend. Not a put down, but for a non-pilot the sim time really counts for "0". The down side is you might have developed some very bad habits: like how much time did you spend (when doing sim) looking for other aircraft in the pattern, and how many times did you have to find emergency fields when an instructor cut off your fuel on a cross-country, or a door flew open like happened on my first solo. My dad was a military instructor and always preached, "No matter what happens, fly the damn airplane first."
