Special Report: 50th Anniversary of the Cessna 172

AOPA Pilot is celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Cessna 172 with a special online section that features articles, photos, a 172 timeline, member experiences, and two exclusive Web videos about the 172. The first video captures footage of the first production Cessna 172, N5000A, still flying 50 years later. In the second, the Cessna pilots and engineers who developed and certified the famous airplane five decades ago share their experiences during a recent reunion in Wichita.
