Cessna introduces Turbo Skyhawk JT-A
Two years after Cessna announced its intent to develop a diesel-powered Skylane 182, Textron Aviation announced at the opening day of AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, a similar modification program to the most produced airplane in the world — the Cessna 172 Skyhawk. Besides being powered by jet-A fuel, which is generally more plentiful and less expensive than 100LL avgas, the new Turbo Skyhawk JT-A will have a significant boost in range, allowing the four-seat airplane to travel as far as 1,012 nm.
