Cessna 180 floatplane airplane model. The Cessna 180 started life as a more powerful development of the 170 and evolved into a family of useful utility aircraft that was in production for over three decades.

The first 180s were essentially Model 170s with a more powerful 170kW (225hp) O-470-A engine. The first of the type flew in 1952 and deliveries began in February the following year. The 180's career as a high-performance single was short lived due to the arrival of the tricycle 180 based 182 in 1956, but by then the type had established itself a useful niche as a utility aircraft.
