The Cessna 177 Cardinal aircraft is a light single-engine, high-wing all-purpose aviation aircraft manufactured by Cessna. It was planned to replace the Cessna 172 Skyhawk. First introduced in 1967, it was manufactured from 1968 to 1978. The Cessna 177 was made in the mid-1960s when the engineers at Cessna were asked to produce a "futuristic 1970s successor to the Cessna172.

The 1968 model 177 was presented in late 1967 with a 150 horsepower (112 kW) engine. One of the design objectives of this 172 replacement was to let the pilot a free view when making a turn. In the Cessna 172, the pilot sits under the wing and when the wing is lowered to start a turn that wing blocks the pilot's view of where the turn will lead to. The engineers resolved this difficulty by positioning the pilot forward of the wing's top edge, but that led to a too-far-forward center of gravity.
The 177 design, as mentioned before, was intended to be a replacement for the 172, which was to be stopped after the introduction of the new aircraft. The new design was initially to be called the 172J (to follow the 1968 model 172I). But, as the time came to make the change, there was considerable resistance to the replacement of the 172 from the firm's Marketing Division. The 1969 172 moved to the designator 172K–there is no 172J. You can learn more about these aircraft series with Cessna 172 RG Cardinal Aircraft 1980, 1984, 1983, 1982, 1981, 1985 Parts Catalog Manual.
