What Do Cessna 150 Flaps Look Like?

The Cessna 150 is a type of general-aviation airplane considered by many flying enthusiasts to be the most popular of all small aircraft (it only seats two people); one reason for this may be because of the Cessna 150 flaps that are on this particular model.

Even though the final model year for the Cessna 150 was 1977, many of the previous years saw improvements to the Cessna 150 flaps. The original trapezoid shape, however, has not changed at all. There are two Cessna 150 flaps, both designed in the trapezoid shape, with the widest end part fitting onto the airplane body. If you look at the plane while facing the nose, you will notice that each of the Cessna 150 flaps has one solid piece, and one to two movable pieces. It is these pieces that are adjusted to allow for better operation of the plane.

If the Cessna 150 flaps on a plane are one-piece only, the entire piece moves up or down, depending on the flap settings. If they are of a two-piece construction, each piece can be moved individually. Depending on the type chosen, the underside of the moveable parts of some Cessna 150 flaps appear to be uniformly divided into separate rectangular pieces, although it is actually still one piece. Others have a smooth appearance.

Cessna 150 flaps can be bought in many different colors to complement or provide a contrast with the airplane body itself. Mixing and matching colors can make for a unique combination which will make your Cessna 150 stand out from all the others.
