Cessna 150 Series Aircraft Information
The fourth most produced civilian plane is the Cessna 150 with 23,949 aircraft produced. Designed for flight training, touring, and personal use the C150 is a two-seat tricycle gear single-engine general aviation aircraft. The capacity of this aircraft is one crew member and one passenger. The empty weight is 1,111 lb (504 kg) and the maximum takeoff weight is 1,600 lb (730 kg). Cruise speed is 107 knots (123 mph, 198 km/h), the stall speed is 42 knots (48 mph, 78 km/h), and the aircraft should never exceed a speed of 141 knots (162 mph, 259 km/h).
Development of the 150 began in the mid-1950s. The Cessna 140 was no longer produced after 1951, and Cessna Aircraft planned to produce the 150 as a successor to the 140. The new aircraft's design used tricycle landing gear, which is easier to learn to use than the Cessna 140's tailwheel landing gear. Various models of the Cessna 150 aircraft include the Cessna Model 150, 150 Aerobat, 150B, 150C, 150D, 150E, 150F, Cessna 150G, 150H, 150I, 150J, 150K, 150L, and 150M. The Cessna 150 was produced from 1958-1977.
Production of the Cessna 150 began in September 1958 at Cessna's Wichita, Kansas plant. American-made 150s are powered by the Continental O-200-A 100 hp engine. Reims Aviation under license in France also produced 216 aircraft. These aircraft produced in France were designated Reims F-150. The "F" indicating they were manufactured in France. The Reims F-150 aircraft were produced with a Rolls Royce O-240-A piston engine of 130 hp.
The 1962 Cessna 150B and the 1963 Cessna 150C are the best-performing planes in the 150 and 152 fleet. This is due to their light 1,500 lb (680 kg) gross weight and more aerodynamic rear fuselage. The 150B and 150C climb the fastest, have the highest ceilings, and require the shortest runways. They also have a faster cruise speed than any other model of either the 150 or 152 at 109 knots (202 km/h).
The 150 has become one of the world's most popular basic trainers because it is simple, robust, and easy to fly. A few of the most frequently installed modifications for the C 150 include: vortex generators and STOL kits; flap gap seals; different wing tips; auto fuel STCs; larger engines, up to 180 horsepower; taildragger landing gear; and auxiliary fuel tanks.
The Cessna 150 is popular with private individuals as well as flying schools. Three Cessna 150s designated T-51A are used by the United States Air Force Academy for training and competition.
