Reims Cessna Fr172h 5869028

Reims-Cessna FR172H

Reims Aviation produced licensed versions of Cessna designs from 1962 until 2014 when the company entered receivership. The aircraft on static display this year at the Air Tattoo is an FR172 Reims Rocket, which was the companies most popular product. Based on the common Cessna 172, the FR172 boasts a more powerful engine drastically increasing the aircrafts performance. As a result it became popular as a float plane conversion.
