Dont forget the Cessna 165 Airmaster... the Predecessor to the 190/195.
When you read this as "un-penguin-ed" and wonder what that means, that's when you know you haven't had enough coffee...
Just imagine how you'd feel if you were called "Skyhawk" by ATC in your Cessna Citation...
The airplane companies must have hired the same advert agencies working for the car companies.
"Land-O-Matic" and "Para-Lift" flaps seem analogous to "Air Poise Suspension" and "Powerglide" transmissions. And "Skylane" rolls off the tongue a lot easier than "Businessliner"...and survived longer.
Wasn't one of those the "Airmaster"?
And what about the Bamboo Bomber?
Cessna T-50 Bobcat was the Bamboo Bomber
I’d love to fly that t-tail.
Reminds me of Andrew Dice Clay

Potomac App called our Archer a Lance last week. Told my wife "ignore it, he's on a roll"
"Fair Lane" was the name of Henry Ford's estate in Dearborn MI.
I wonder if Fair Lady was the name of Mr. Datsun's home in Yokohama?
Just a thought...
Remember the 1970s radio ad?
"Dat's a nice car."
I always wanted one of those Datsun 2000 roadsters. Figured I could tell my friends it was My Fair Lady.
Pause here for groan...
What's the matter with the exchange name of our phone number in Davis, CA in the 1950s? Skyline 3 - xxxx
Yup, and the POH for the PA28R-200 called it the Cherokee Arrow. Published by Piper. So, ATC isn't too far wrong.
WOW! I have never heard of this model of Cessna. THAT is cool.
The amount of people that think my 182T is turbo is actually funny. And then when I tell them that's the T182T they still look at me confused and don't get it
Did anyone mention the "Bird dog"?
I used to get called Navaho a lot when going between Baltimore and Dulles approaches (pre-Potomac days). It was a while before I found out that the controllers in the TRACON would just put in a single letter for types on VFR popups. C for Cessna and P for Piper were easy guesses. A relatively fast mover with N?
Named after somewhere in Ireland. And, now, the name of more shopping centers, office buildings, fitness centers, and purd near everything else in Dearborn. Many of the buildings had nicknames (Blue Lagoon, Kenmore Towers...) because you couldn't keep all the Fairlane variations straight.
Piper liked sticking to one main model designator. I'm learning more and more about the Aztec and it's interesting that both the Apache and the Aztec are PA-23.. yet ATC wants the Aztec called PA-27 due to its considerably different performance envelope
Was this a Boeing-esq desire to help with certification costs? "No no, it's still an Apache, it's just bigger and has much larger engines and a whole different performance profile, otherwise it's basically the same" haha
Actually the Aztec's Piper model designation is a PA-27 (the first two digits of the Piper serial number are the model, and you'll see the Aztecs all start with 27). I think the FAA type certificate is the same as the Apache though, so maybe they think they are all 23s? @Pilawt can probably explain all this better than me.
Whatever, just make sure your instructor doesn't forget to show you how to operate the PiperMatic MCAS system.
..is it panic and do nothing until the plane is hopelessly out of trim? Luckily I'll be getting more than a 30 minute iPad powerpoint presentation
jk, sorry.. too soon?
Post some pics of the plane if you get a chance.
Who knows, just like me and @Ted DuPuis you might really appreciate it after you log some hours in it.
Earlier this year I connected with the second retired wide-body airline captain that I know that chose to build up an Aztec for his personal airplane after retiring. Both of them do a lot of overwater flying from their winter homes in Florida.[/QUOTE][/QUOTE]
I'm pretty excited! Over water and over mountain flying has always been an issue for me.. and lately with having four people consistently plus bags and stuff it'll be great to have the capacity
There's a guy on YouTube who has a couple good Aztec videos Fastback Flying
It's going to be a whole different flying experience. That's for sure!
ATC in India called me "Citation" in my C182
What? No mention of the Cessna AG planes?
"Agwagon" is one of the coolest names ever on an airplane!
Yep, Aztecs (and Apache 235s) were known within the company as PA-27, and their ICAO designator is PA27. Piper called them PA-23-250 (and PA-23-235) for marketing. Round-tail Apaches are PA-23s, have '23-' serial numbers, and have the ICAO designator PA23.
Likewise, the Comanche 400 was marketed as PA-24-400, but within the company it was PA-26, and serials start with '26-'.
I haven't seen anyone mention the 188 line. I worked for a Cessna Ag dealer in the 70's.
Anyone know what an AGCarryall was?
I'm showing my age again.
A 185 modified for ag.
I remember hearing somewhere that some of these were sold to customers in some Latin American countries to get around onerous tax or restrictions on aircraft imports -- except for ag aircraft.
That's an interesting take. We got a brand-new AgCarryall in 1973 but never used it for aerial application. My first taildragger experience.
