The Cessna 175 is a four-seat single engined high wing light aircraft of all-metal construction, developed by Cessna Aircraft Company, Wichita, Kansas, USA. In 1956, Cessna started the development of the 175 hp Cessna 175 with the goal of filling the gap between the Model 172s price and the Model 182s performance. On 26 April 1956, the 175 prototype was flown first. Delays in the development of the newly developed geared Continental GO-300A powerplant for the Model 175 caused a two-year delay in the certification and introduction of the Cessna 175 Skylark. On 14 January 1958, the Cessna Model 175, Skylark, received its type certification, in fact as part of Type Certificate No. 3A17 of the Cessna Model 172. Cessna Model 175 was virtually initially to the Model 172. Early straight-tail 175s and 172s had the same fuselage dimensions. The differences are especially under the cowl and in the cabin and of course the geared Continental GO-300A or GO-300C powerplant. The 175s firewall is further rearward on the fuselage than that of the 172, allowing for a longer, more gradually-tapered cowl with larger inlets for cooling air. Production of the Model 175 began in 1958 and ended in 1962, with 2.119 built.

The 1958-built Cessna 175 Skylark s/n 55114 was registered N9314B in the USA. On 6 January 1958, the Cessna 175 Skylark was registered D-EDIX in Germany. Already in the 1960s Cessna 175 Skylark D-EDIX was based at the Flugplatz Stadtlohn-Vreden with Fa. H. Hechingen Shne, Stadtlohn, as owner.
On 29 September 2023, Cessna 175 Skylark D-EDIX was seen at Verkehrslandeplatz Stadtlohn-Vreden (EDLS) in Germany.
The ICAO Aircraft Type Designator for the Cessna 175 aircraft is C175.
