Although much has been written about Cessna aircraft, little factual information has been accumulated about Clyde Vernon Cessna, the man, his companies and the machines that bore his name. In Cessna - a Master's Expression, Ed Phillips has skillfully blended history with a highly readable text that represents the most thoroughly researched story of Cessna yet published. Accordingl, much new ground has been covered in this book. The reader will quickly discovery that many of the previously accepted stories of Cessna history will conflict with the information presented herein. Mr. Phillips has done much original and intensive research into the earliest days of Cessna's flying, a time period sorely lacking in reliable information until now. He interviewed Cessna factory employees who were there when many of the company's historic events occured. The author also talked with men and women who knew Clyde Cessna and his son, Eldon a team that built the famous CR-series racers in 1932-1933. As company historian at Ceesna for 19 years, I have been looking forward to a publication that covers the history of Clyde Vernon Cessna and his tremendous career in aviaiton. It's my pleasure to welcome Cessna - A Master's Expression to the library of aviation enthusiasts and historians everywhere.

At a time when biplanes ruled the roost, Clyde Cessna "clung firmly to the concept that one wing was better than two."(34) The full cantilever wing was a significant improvement aerodynamically as well as aesthetically and became a Cessna tradition. But Cessna's production runs do not demonstrate that mass appeal was achieved. For example of the 1928 Model AA and AW series, no more than 65 units were built at a cost of approximately $6-7,000 each. From 1935-1938 only 104 of the C-34, C-37, and C-38 series were manufactured priced at between $5-7,000. The deepening depression was a reason for so few aircraft being produced; indeed the Cessna factory was closed from 1931 until 1933.

After WWII the government approved educational programs, including flight training, for returning veterans eager to get on with their lives. The post-WWII era was expected to usher in the "air age" and the Cessna 120 and 140 models were small two place monoplanes designed to serve as trainers. They incorporated new features and were reasonably priced. "Announced in the spring of 1946, the 140 represented a real value at only $3,385, equipped with a complete electrical system, manually-operated wing flaps, deluxe upholstery and rear and quarter windows. The wing incorporated aluminum spars and stamped aluminum ribs, greatly reducing both time and labor for these components."(127)

To meet demand a record number of general aviation aircraft were produced. From 1945 until 1956 a nearly 14,000 Cessna 120/140s, 170s, and 190/195s were built. These numbers are impressive but hardly represent mass appeal. Veterans, it turns out, settled down to raise families, complete their educations, and buy new cars and houses, not airplanes. Cessna's experience was not unique, but the company managed to survive. Many others did not.
