Welcome To Skymaster
The Cessna Skymaster is a twin-engine civil utility aircraft built in a push-pull configuration. Instead of the engines being mounted on the wings, one is mounted on the nose and the other at the rear of the pod-style fuselage. The stabilizers are mounted on twin booms that extend from the wings. The rear engine is between the booms. The combination of a tractor and a pusher engine produces a unique sound.
The first model flew out in 1961 and had a fixed landing gear. Later in 1965 the 337 Skymaster model was introduced. This model was larger, and had more powerful engines. In total Cessna built 2993 aircraft, including military variations.
