The Mighty Cessna 310


The Cessna 310 is a twin-engine, six-seat light aircraft that was first introduced in 1954.

It was one of the first aircraft to be equipped with a cantilever wing, which means that it has no external bracing and is attached directly to the fuselage.

The Cessna 310 was originally designed as a small business airplane, and it was popular with executives and small companies for its reliability and comfort.

The Cessna 310 was the first aircraft produced by Cessna to have retractable landing gear, which allowed it to reach higher speeds and operate from shorter runways.

The Cessna 310 was used by the US Air Force and the US Army in a variety of roles, including air ambulance, transport, and even as a VIP transport.

The Cessna 310 was also used by the CIA for covert operations during the Cold War, and was equipped with a variety of specialized equipment for this purpose.

The Cessna 310 was popular with private pilots due to its ease of handling and low operating costs, and it was often used for personal transportation and family vacations.

The Cessna 310 was produced in a number of different variants, including the 310C, 310D, 310E, and 310F, each with its own unique features and capabilities.

The Cessna 310 was one of the first aircraft to be equipped with a pressurized cabin, which allowed it to fly at higher altitudes and provide a more comfortable ride for passengers.

The Cessna 310 was in production for over 20 years, and over 5,400 of these aircraft were produced before production ceased in 1980.
