Cessna flies SkyCatcher, goes fishing for pilots

The debut of a new Cessna piston single is a rare event – as far as I can work out the last one was the Model 177 Cardinal in 1967 – so mark 8 March 2008 in your diaries. That’s when Cessna’s Model 162 SkyCatcher light sport aircraft flew for the first time (from Cessna Field in Wichita). Cessna hopes the SkyCatcher will be the new 152 and, with its modest price and easy operation, will persuade more people that flying is affordable and enjoyable.
