The Association

Who We Are

The International Cessna 120-140 Association is an all volunteer group of approximately 1,000 owners, pilots and others who share a common interest in restoring, maintaining and flying the Models 120, 140 and 140A aircraft manufactured by the Cessna Aircraft Company in 1946-1951. Though over sixty years old, these aircraft provide a combination of performance, ease and economy of operation and maintenance unmatched by many currently produced aircraft.

What We Do

The Association provides a forum for disseminating and exchanging information about restoring, maintaining and operating the Cessna 120, 140 and 140A aircraft. Our goal is to keep these over-sixty-year-old aircraft flying safely and economically. The most complete technical information about maintaining, preserving and operating Cessna 120, 140 and 140A aircraft as been collected by the Association into one document, which is available for sale. The Association publishes a quarterly newsletter that provides additional technical information, as well as aircraft and parts for sale, active STC’s, supplier resources, Association-sponsored flying events and articles about flying our aircraft.


The Association, through its network of State and Foreign Representatives, promotes numerous local and regional Fly-ins throughout the year. These Fly-ins provide opportunities for Cessna 120, 140 and 140A enthusiasts to meet, socialize, compare aircraft and exchange ideas and information. At both Sun-in-Fun (Lakeland, Florida – April) and Air-venture (Oshkosh, Wisconsin – July/August) Experimental Aircraft Association Conventions the Association staffs an information table at the Type Club tent. In addition the Association holds maintenance forums and banquets at both events.

The Association’s Annual Convention attracts enthusiasts from all corners of the world. The Convention is a three to four day event that includes maintenance and safety forums, flying events, business meeting, social activities and visits to historical or other points of interest. The convention is held in September at different locations around the country.
