General Aviation aircraft

Clyde 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 own companies.

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?
