Cessna 195 "Shakey Jake"
The Cessna 195 was the
last "Round Engine"
produced by the Cessna
Company. I assume the
Jacobs engine gave it the
name :Shakey Jake"
This package contains a
Rescue Float, an
Amphibian, and a land
version. The amphib
version features the Jacobs
275 hp engine, the land
and float version a Jacobs
300 hp engine. Please note
the land version is a tail
dragger, not for the
inexperienced pilot and will
take a bit of practice.

|Three complete variations included: A military rescue float, an amphibian, and a land version. This package also
contains a PDF file which contains flying tips and tips on setting up your joystick to work with the 3D panel. There
is no 2D panel, setting field of view in the Sim to 60 degrees allows viewing of most instruments while in 2D mode.
Some Cessna 195 stuff
Originally powered by the 240 Continental the 190 series evolved to have a
number of engine choices. Cessna even offered to install customers own
engines as an option. Imagine bringing your own engine and flying away a
The Jacobs R755-9 (L-4), 245 hp engine was used in the A model. This engine
was, and still is, available in great numbers. The “B” is modeled here and as
stated used the Jacobs R-755B2 which has a noticeable power advantage, but
all the Jacobs were very reliable.
The float version offered here is the LC-126 Military Model

I have also chosen to do the 195 as an amphibian. I have no evidence that the
195 was ever certified as an amphibian but due to requests I have included it
due to it's increased versatility.
This project originally was to include only a float version of the 195 but a land
version would have been imminent. After completion of the land version it has
turned out to be my personal favorite. I have also included a manual with some
Cessna facts and some tips for using the land version.
