Can someone explain how the throttle on a Cessna works? It is a "push/pull" type throttle right? Is it easy to use? What do you think of it? Thanks a lot!

It is a push/pull device and is easy to use.

If you are learning to fly, dont let it worry you.

It is a push pull, and I find it very easy to use, however I do find it creeps out while climbing out. I prefer it over the Piper throttle, I find with that one when you expereince turbulance you adjust the throttle quite a lot!

Adjust the throttle friction control before you takeoff and you should be fine.

KonaB777 - My throttle friction was fine it was more the way you bouce! Your arms go up which adds RPM's and when they come back down you reduce the RPM.

Yes it is a push pull type throttle.. just like any other throttle except loooks kinda odd.. push it forward to apply thrust...pull it back to take it away.

Its very annoying how the throttle works it way out on cessnas.. no matter how tight you tie the thing down with the throttle friction it still works it way out. Just have to keep your hand on the stupid thing.... I have only flown a couple cessnas that the thing doesnt work its way out pretty bad on.


Haha...I agree about the Piper...i fly Archers and Arrows the most.... ive learned to anchor part of my hand to the throttle "box" so when i hit a bump my hand doesnt go smashing into the throttle and go full power or take all power off. That technique works quite good.

I fly a 172R and have never had a problem with working its way out. It does remind me of the choke on a old ford though ugly.

All the reason to like piper over cessa... A piper single looks like a plane is suppose to look.. low wing... oleio struts etc... a cessna... ick.... ick ick... a piper is a real plane... (no i dont want to start a childish arguemnet here.. just a little lgiht hearted humor)

Wilchair I think it is the other way, Piper's look fun (especially the PA-38 which I fly), Cessna is a classic looking GA aircraft.

KonaB777 There is nothing wrong with a 152. I used to fly them when I was checked out in fater bigger planes just for up. I loved doing pattern work in them when the Santa Ana's where blowing, or but when I wanted to go anywhere I would not take the 152. I prefered the 172 RG, after flying 152's it feels like a fighter jet!

Yes, of course Real planes are low wings... C-5s C-17s BAE 146s anything with a high wing is not a real plane... Real planes have throttle quadrents too.. (mooney owners take note)

its a joke yo... its intended to be a brief distraction from all the bordum of the technical aspects of aviation... I like many made my first solo in a "non real airplane" and have always had and will always have much respect for Clyde Cessna's creation.

The throttles on Cessnas are the push/pull type.
