Why the heck did Cessna not keep making these? I'm guessing there was an economic downturn and they never rebooted them? What a great plane. The seating position and visibility (high wing above not withstanding) really stood out to me as the most improved thing compared to a 182. It's like sitting in a sedan, with the panel height just right and plenty of elbow room. Tons of legroom in the backseat. Big spacious entry doors. Easy to land and does 135kts on 10GPH (no mooney to be sure but still). Good useful load for only having an IO360. I can see why some people covet these things. I much preferred it to all the 182s I've been flying over the past few years.
