Cessna 175 Skylark Information

The 175 fuselage is the same size as the 180 and it has a stronger firewall area than the 172. It is often deemed more desireable than the 172 for engine upgrades, Alaska use and etc.

There are 1346 Cessna 175's and 38 P172D's on the U.S. Civil Aircraft Register on 12/15/12 including 72 in Alaska and 127 in California.

Need parts? I unapologetically recommend Preferred Airparts as a first source for all of your Cessna airframe, engine, accessory, wheel and brake and other parts. They have a huge inventory of new surplus parts at big discounts, and 95% same-day shipment. Alaskans, Preferred can get it to you in good time!
