The machine is a larger version of the Cessna 140 and has also stripped wings, as well as a rigid tail wheel gear. The range includes the Cessna 170, the Cessna 170A, the Cessna 170B and the Cessna 170C. The basic version, the Cessna 170, has fabric-covered wings as well as double, V-shaped wing struts. In addition, three tanks are installed in order to achieve a higher range with a more powerful engine. End of 1948, the Cessna 170A was introduced. This is made entirely of metal and the wings have a wing support. Furthermore, the larger flaps can be extended from zero to 50 degrees. The most common example is the Cessna 170B. The machine was introduced in 1952 and produced until 1956. Innovations include the large half-Fover flaps that are very similar to those of the L-19. The Cessna 170C benefits from a vertical vertical stabilizer and a powerful 155 hp engine. From this model, the Cessna 172 was developed.
