C-FXQK, Cessna 177A, Built 1968 (C/N): 17701194 at YYJ.
Recognizing that the aircraft was underpowered, Cessna introduced the 177A in 1968. The revision featured a 180 hp (135 kW) version of the same four-cylinder Lycoming used in the 177, moving the design's price and role somewhere between that of the 172 and 182. The additional power improved cruise speed by 11 knots (20 km/h). The 177A also included the fiberglass, downward-shaped, conical wing tips that had been introduced on the 172 of the same year.
