The Cessna 152 is a two seat light aircraft used primarily for flight training and personal use and was built between 1977 and 1985. The aircraft was a development of the proven Cessna 150 and was designed to compete with the Beechcraft Skipper and the Piper Tomahawk both of which were introduced in 1977. All 152’s are powered by the Lycoming O-235 which has been in production since 1942 and uses 100LL low lead fuel. The airframe is a semi-monocoque construction of metal construction using 2024-T3 aluminium riveted to the frame. The wingtips and fairings are made from glass reinforced plastic. The wings are of a strut braced construction with a 1 degree dihedral with 1 degree of washout on the outboard portion of the wing which allows greater aileron effectiveness during a stall. The aircraft has a fixed tricycle landing gear with tubular steel construction surrounded by a full length fairing. The nosewheel is connected to the engine mount and has an oleo strut to dampen normal loads and is steerable via the rudder pedals.
