The Cessna 177 Cardinal is a light single-engine, high-wing general aviation aircraft that was intended to replace Cessna’s 172 Skyhawk. First announced in 1967, it was produced from 1968 to 1978. The Cessna 177 was designed in the mid-1960s when the engineers at Cessna were asked to create a futuristic 1970s successor to the Cessna 172. The resulting aircraft featured newer technology such as a cantilever wing lacking the lift struts of previous models, and a new laminar flow airfoil. The 177 is the only production high-wing single-engined Cessna since the Cessna 190 & 195 series to have both fixed landing gear and a cantilever wing without strut bracing.
