The Cessna A-185F Skywagon is a single-engine, high-wing, six-seat light utility aircraft produced by the American manufacturer Cessna Aircraft Company. It is a development of the Cessna 180 model, with a more powerful engine, a larger cabin, and a tailwheel landing gear. The A-185F model was introduced in 1973 and featured a fuel-injected Continental IO-520-D engine with 300 hp, a three-blade propeller, and a dorsal fin for improved stability. The A-185F also had a larger baggage compartment, a wider rear window, and an optional belly cargo pod. The A-185F was the last Skywagon model to be produced, as Cessna discontinued the line in 1985. The A-185F is popular among bush pilots, who use it for various missions such as charter flights, aerial photography, firefighting, skydiving, and humanitarian aid. The A-185F has a maximum speed of 155 knots, a range of 845 nautical miles, and a service ceiling of 17,150 feet. The A-185F is known for its ruggedness, reliability, and versatility.
