The Cessna 177B Cardinal II is a lightweight, high-wing General Aviation aircraft that was intended to replace the Cessna 172 Skyhawk. First announced in 1967, the Cardinal was produced from 1968 through 1978.
Featuring a Lycoming 4-cylinder, air-cooled engine, with a constant speed propeller. It can safely and efficiently fly up to four people approximately 600 nautical miles at a cruise speed of approximately 130 knots. The aircraft's forward seat design, ahead of the wing leading edge, provides pilots with excellent visibility.
