General information about the Cessna 401 and the Cessna 402
The Cessna 401 and 402 are mostly identical, twin-engine propeller aircraft. The machines were designed and marketed by the American manufacturer Cessna. The Cessna 401 was built until mid-1972 and served as a business jet. Until 1985, the Cessna 402 was built. This served mainly as a feeder and cargo aircraft. In late 1971, both models were united. The Cessna 401 is a lower cost, lighter and less motorized version of the Cessna 411. By eliminating reduction gears in the engines, maintenance costs have been minimized. The first flight of the Cessna 401/402 took place on 16 August 1965. A year later, on 20 September 1966, the market entry followed. The machine has four small, oval windows. In early December 1971, the Cessna 401 was replaced by the successor model, the 402th This one has a longer nose and more windows. 1985 ended production. By the time a total of 1,936 pieces were produced.
