Design and development

Cessna Aircraft was suffering in the depression and downturn in the economy following the Wall Street crash. Eldon Cessna, the son of Clyde Cessna designed a low-cost cheap to operate aircraft to meet the new conditions. The Model EC-1 was powered by a 25 hp (19 kW) Cleone engine. It did not go into production. A two-seat version the Model EC-2 was also developed.

Surviving Aircraft

Only two examples of the EC-1 were built. The example stored at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum is thought to be the only survivor.
