Cessna 185 FloatplaneItem Number: 1704
Cessna 185 Floatplane model airplane. The Cessna 185 first appeared in 1961 as an evolutionary follow-on to the popular 180. It's basically a beefed-up 180 with a 260-horsepower fuel-injected Continental IO-470. Adding 30 more horses to the proven design immediately won the attention (and affection) of charter operators needing additional power for floatplanes, high-altitude flight, and heavy hauling.
