Cessna 350/400

Time was that a Cessna 300 series airplane was a light twin-engined airplane like this

or this

and a Cessna 400 series aircraft looked like this

Not any more. Cessna has purchased the assets of Columbia Aircraft and will build them as Cessna 350s and Cessna 400s.

That's good news for the owners of Columbia's airplanes, as they will not be trying to maintain an orphan airframe.

But if Cessna has ever made a low-wing single-engined airplane, I can't think of it.

(Yes I know about the T-37, but it was a twin)

And has Cessna ever built a composite aircraft? If so, I can't think of it.

Well, there's the new Skycatcher, but now it seems that they are going to import it from China, rather than build it in Wichita.

Does the Bamboo Bomber count as a composite aircraft? :)

Cessna has been working with composites on the Citations for years. There is also much experience with low wings in the twins and the jets. No single engine low wing produced but plenty experimented with.
