Description  There are a few aircraft that are nothing less than beautiful in flight. The Cessna model 177RG was a conscious attempt to create something unseen up to that time – a sporty Cessna ! The basic Cardinal was designed in 1967 to be a futuristic, innovative airplane—built low to the ground, swept, slick, and faired to the wind. Indeed, Cessna was so impressed with its handiwork, they labeled the model 177 Cardinal the “Airplane of the ‘70s” when it was introduced in the late ‘60s. By sweeping up the wheels and adding a more hp, Cessna claimed an increased cruise of 24 knots, from 120 to a theoretical 144 knots. The Cardinal RG incorporated a number of features not seen on previous Cessna models. The airplane was built low to the ground, with doors that opened a full 90 degrees great for entry/egress.                        The 177RG is certainly among the most efficient of light, production retractables, and nearly every pilot would agree the shape is among the most recognizable in the sky.
