Cessna 172 Skyhawk – 43 in fleet

The Cessna C172 Skyhawk is an exceptionally well-proven and reliable training aircraft. Cessna's classic high-wing design offers many practical benefits including stable flight characteristics.


We use 172s for both basic and advanced flight navigation training. Our Cessna 172s are equipped with the Garmin G1000 and Traffic Advisory System (TAS) avionics suite. This 'glass cockpit' design is identical to the avionics suite found in the twin-engine DA42 and is very similar to that found on modern jet aircraft.
