Information on the 140

The Cessna 120 and the Cessna 140 are single engine, two-seat, light general aviation aircraft that were first produced in 1946, just following the end of World War II. Production ended in 1950, and was later succeeded by the Cessna 150, another two-seat trainer. Between the 120 and the 140, Cessna sold 7,000 airplanes in the five years that the aircraft were produced.

The Cessna 140 was originally equipped with an 85 or 90 horsepower (63 or 67 kW) Continental piston engine. This model has a metal fuselage and fabric wings with metal control surfaces. The larger Cessna 170 was essentially a four seat 140 with a more powerful engine.

The final variant of the Cessna 140 was the 140A which had a standard Continental C-90 engine producing 90 hp (67 kW), aluminum covered wings and a single strut replacing the dual "V" struts and jury struts fitted on earlier models.
