The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a four-seat, single-engine, high-wing fixed-wing aircraft. More Cessna 172s have been built than any other aircraft.
About this creation
Measured by its longevity and popularity, the Cessna 172 is the most successful aircraft in history. A Cessna 172 was used in 1958 to set the world record for flight endurance; the record still stands.

Awesome! I took the controls of one of these for a few minutes (maybe it was a 182). Are you sure about the endurance record still standing? The Rutan Voyager has the current record.
Thanks! Apparently, the Rutan Voyager holds the record in the non-refueled category while the Cessna 172 holds the record in the refueled one. It was refueled from moving truck on ground! Unbelievable! :)
