Cessna's Model 150 was improved as the 152 in 1978 with a 110 hp Lycoming replacing the 100 hp Continental engine. The gross weight was increased, a 28-volt electrical system added and the Model 152 has electric flaps. Production of the Cessna 152 ceased in 1985 but many are still flying as trainers and it also makes an economical personal aircraft.
This aircraft is very easy to fly and has a very good interior. I would recommend this aircraft to anyone who is small enough to fit into it- but the only downside are the seats that sometimes move a little in flight (but nothing too serious). However- during the next 50hr check- flight academy have ensured everyone that the seats will be replaced. Soon after this- the aircraft will be perfect. It is also maintained very well by flight academy barton and hasnt had any problems.
Great aircraft! Extremely reliable. Had a good track record when it comes to reliability. Haven't had a problem yet with a Cessna 152 and I've been flying for 3 years now! However the flight deck is a little small- so if you're a tall person it could get cramped especially on a long journey.
