Cessna was the first American west of the Mississippi River to have a
powered flight, in 1911 while flying a "Silverwing" that he built
himself, copying a Bleriot XI. Cessna, together with Walter Beech and
Lloyd Stearman started the Travel Air Manufacturing Company. They would
all eventually go their separate ways to become successful with their
1946 Cessna 140 (N89605). The 140 was the second in a long line of
light aircraft for General Aviation.

The popular Cessna 150 was designed as a replacement for the 140 and
first flew in 1959. Between 1959 and 1977, almost 24,000 150s were made
in the US, France and Argentina. Do you know anyone who flies that has not
been up in a Cessna 150 at least once?
