Cessna Skymaster light twin
The push-pull Model 337 SkyMaster has some odd characteristics, but it’s a good performer.
We’d be remiss to point out of Cessna’s outlier Skymaster light twin, also known as the “Mixmaster” or “Skysmasher.” In concept, it brilliantly eradicated all the objections posed of wing-mounted engines; by way of setting the two engines in line, on each end of the fuselage, with no engine-out loss of control from uneven thrust or input delays by way of a slow-acting pilot. This Cessna pulled it off and continued manufacturing for 17 years.
if the Skymaster’s quirks are understood and accommodated, it’s a credible performer, even available in turbocharged and pressurized versions.
