Aircraft Type and Background

 

Reims Cessna F152 G-BHDR

 


 

Aircraft Type Designation: Civil / Private. Multi-purpose light aircraft.

 

Normally built in Wichita, Kansas, USA for the civil market, this Cessna (F152 G-BHDR) was built by Reims Aviation of France.

 

The F152 was intended as a multi-purpose aircraft. It could be used by private owners, small civil organisations, or for flight training purposes, etc. (dual control models were available).

 

The two-seat Cessna 152 had tricycle landing gear and the wheels were equipped with disk brakes. The aircraft was powered by a 110hp (82 kW) Lycoming O-235-L2C piston engine. It's maximum speed was about 204 km/h (126 mph or 110 knots). Cruising speed was about 198 km/h. The aircraft had a range of 768 km (477 miles), but this could be extended by fitting long range tanks.

 

Production of the Cessna 152 ceased in 1985.

 

 

 

 

 

Aircraft Accident Details

 

(Forced Landing)

 

AAIB Synopsis

 

During a cross-country flight below cloud level the engine began to run rough and then lost all power. A forced landing was carried out on a hillside, which resulted in the aircraft turning upside down. Carburettor ice formation was considered a potential cause of the engine failure.

Following the forced landing, the pilot—who was uninjured—was able to make his way downhill. However, his name is unknown.
