Another Cessna / 2020.05.17

The Cessna 190 and Cessna 195 “Businessliner” are a family of light single radial engine powered, conventional landing gear equipped, general aviation aircraft which were manufactured by Cessna between 1947 and 1954. The first prototype flew in 1945, after the end of World War II and both the 190 and 195 entered production in 1947. 1180 aircraft were produced.

The 195 model was also used by the United States Air Force, United States Army, and Army National Guard as a light transport and utility aircraft under the designations LC-126/U-20.

The 195 was the first Cessna airplane to be completely constructed of aluminum and features a cantilever wing, similar to the pre-war Cessna 165 from which it is derived. The wing differs from later Cessna light aircraft in that it has a straight taper from root chord to tip chord and no dihedral. The airfoil employed is a NACA 2412, the same as used on the later Cessna 150, 172 and 182.

The 190/195 fuselage is large in comparison to other Cessna models because the 42" (106,7 cm) diameter radial engine had to be accommodated in the nose. There are two rows of seats: two individual seats in the first row, with a comfortable space between them and up to three passengers can be accommodated on a bench seat in the second row.

Cessna 195 is powered by a Jacobs R-755-B2 engine of 275 hp (205 kW). The engines fitted to the 190 and 195 became well known for their oil consumption. The aircraft has a 5-US-gallon (19 L) oil tank, with 2 US gallons (7.6 L) the minimum for flight. Typical oil consumption with steel cylinder barrels is 2 US quarts (1.9 L) per hour.

The aircraft was expensive to purchase and operate for private use and Cessna therefore marketed them as mainly as a business aircraft under the name "Businessliner". The Cessna 195 was originally introduced at a price of USD$12,750 in 1947 (equivalent to $145,988 in 2019). When production ended in 1954 the price had risen to USD$24,700 (equivalent to $235,155 in 2019) for the 195B. This compared to USD$3,495 for the Cessna 140 two seater of the same period.
