What Kind Of Airplane Is This?



Does anyone know what kind of airplane this is? I'm sure that it is probably a Cessna or a Piper Cub but would like to know for sure. The photo is from the 1960's.

Thanks to Mikem for identifying the airplane as a Cessna. Most likely a model 182 or 206.

Definitely a single-engine Cessna. I can't see enough of the details to tell which model. Looks larger than a Cessna 172; possibly a 182 or 206?

You're welcome.

I see now that it has a three-blade prop. The 172 and 182 came standard with two-bladed props, although turbo-charged versions may have had three-bladed props straight from the factory. There are aftermarket kits also to upgrade to three-bladed props, but I don't know if those existed in the 1960 when this picture was taken. Leads me to lean more towards the 206, a six-seater (vs. four seats in the 100 series).
