Cardinals for the price of one!
DreamFleet Cardinal is modeled after N1384C, a fixed gear 1978 177B
operated by Knoxville Flyers, a flying club based in Knoxville,
Tennessee. The club currently owns three aircraft; a Cessna 152,
Cessna 182, and this Cessna 177, and it is this 177 that is the
club's most popular aircraft, being rented more often than any other!
1978 was also the last year of production for the Cessna Cardinal
series of aircraft
after we photographed N1384C she left for the paint shop, for a
new paint scheme. Thus, our 177 is available in both the old "brown"
paint scheme, and the new "red" paint scheme.
addition to the fixed gear 177B model described above, we are also
including in the package at NO ADDITIONAL COST a 177RG Turbo version
aircraft. This is the retractable gear version of the Cardinal,
and has also been modified with a turbo charger for additional performance.
This aircraft is based on that owned by Keith Peterson, of the Cardinal
Flyers On Line web site, and we thank Keith for his assistance
you have flown a Cardinal, and experienced her handling, roomy interior
and speed, you'll understand why these aircraft prove so popular.
