1965 Cessna 172F Skyhawk


The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is one of the most produced general aviation aircraft and is a favorite of many flight schools around the world.

The Cessna 172 originally was powered by a 145 hp continental engine and later models were powered by a 160 hp Lycoming.  Our Cessna 172 was upgraded in 2006 with a 180hp Lycoming engine and structurally improved to increase the useful load by 200 pounds.  It also received new exterior paint a few years later.

These modifications make the airplane not only good for training primary students but also as a relatively fast cross country airplane and able to carry 4 adults with 3+ hours fuel endurance.

These are a four-seat, high wing airplane with great visibility. They are comfortable, predictable and very well built, making them one of the most popular training aircraft ever built.

Cessna 172                $140 / hr (wet)
