The Cessna Skymaster is an American twin-engine civil utility aircraft built in a push-pull configuration. Its engines are mounted in the nose and rear of its pod-style fuselage. Twin booms extend aft of the wings to the vertical stabilizers, with the rear engine between them. The horizontal stabilizer is aft of the pusher propeller, mounted between and connecting the two booms. The combined tractor and pusher engines produce centerline thrust and a unique sound.
The first Skymasters, the model designation 336, were a novel concept in that one engine was in front and other in the rear. This was an effort by Cessna to eliminate the asymmetric thrust problems that more conventional twins suffered in the event of an engine loss. These new airplanes were so unique that the FAA eventually created a new multi-engine rating for “centerline” thrust aircraft, a concept that the Cessna Skymaster originated.
The Model 336 Skymaster, had fixed landing gear and initially flew on February 28, 1961. It went into production in May 1963 with 195 being produced through mid-1964.
