Cessna CE-336

 

The push-pull concept, with engines driving one tractor and one pusher propeller, was adopted by Cessna in the late 1950s for a light, low cost, easy-to-fly twin, and one obvious advantage over a normal twin layout was that, in the event of an engine failure, there would be no asymmetric thrust problems.


First flew on February 18, 1961, but significant improvements to the design were made before production aircraft were delivered. Changes included more powerful engines, a larger fuselage, and revised wing, tail and rear engine cowling.


FAA certification took 15 months, with deliveries of the first production 336 beginning in May 1963.


Powered by two 157kW Continental IO-360-A engines, the new aeroplane was a four-seater with fixed tricycle landing gear, although alternative seating arrangements for up to six were available. Additional baggage space was available in an optional glassfibre pack with a capacity of 136kg, which could be carried beneath the fuselage.
However, fixed landing gear on light twins was becoming passe, and after 195 Model 336s had been built the type was replaced on the production line in early 1965 by the Model 337 Super Skymaster with retractable landing gear.
