Introducing the Bushliner 1850: The Modern Evolution of Legendary Taildraggers

At Bushliner, we recognize the legendary history of Cessna’s taildraggers, which were pioneers of their time, renowned for their performance and timeless design. However, we understand that as these aircraft age, they can become a liability, requiring extensive restoration efforts to meet safety, legal, and performance standards. That’s why we proudly present the Bushliner 1850—an exceptional alternative for aviation enthusiasts seeking the best of both worlds.

Our Story: Founded by Cessna and Boeing Experts

At Bushliner, we have a deep understanding of the aviation industry, and our team consists of passionate individuals who have worked with renowned companies like Cessna and Boeing. Drawing on our expertise and rich experience, we have created the Bushliner 1850 as a tribute to the heritage of classic taildraggers while incorporating modern advancements in aircraft technology and safety.


Cessna’s taildraggers have legendary-history. In the 40’s through 80’s when they were mass-produced, they were cutting edge aircraft and decades later are still sought after for their performance and styling. After years of wear and use these aircraft are becoming a liability. To simply bring them up to safety, legal, and performance standards a person looking for a DIY project has to start with the purchase of one that appears to be in the least worst condition, and then begin the process of tearing into it to discover the true condition of the aircraft. Weibull suggests that failures will accumulate statistically over hours and years. This means that for existing airframes, more repairs will be needed than can continually be accomplished.

The Bushliner 1850: A Perfect Blend of Classic and Contemporary

The Bushliner 1850 is not just another aircraft; it is a meticulously designed, factory-built masterpiece that combines the spirit of vintage taildraggers with the reliability and performance of a modern aircraft. With its sleek lines, attention to detail, and advanced engineering, the Bushliner 1850 pays homage to the legendary aircraft of the past while setting new standards for the future.

Unmatched Safety and Compliance

When you choose the Bushliner 1850, you can be confident that you are flying in an aircraft that meets the latest safety and regulatory standards. Unlike restoring a vintage taildragger, which may accumulate wear and require continuous repairs, the Bushliner 1850 is a brand-new aircraft that is built with precision and care, ensuring uncompromising safety for you and your passengers.

Customization for Your Mission

We understand that each pilot has unique needs and preferences. That’s why the Bushliner 1850 offers a range of customization options, allowing you to tailor the aircraft to your specific mission requirements. From camera provisions for special mission operations to the versatility of a seaplane or ski plane for snow operations, the Bushliner 1850 can be equipped to excel in various environments and tasks.
