Fly One of the Most Popular Aircraft of all Time!

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is one of the most popular general aviation aircraft ever created. Tracing its roots back to the original production lineage of the late 1950's, the 172 Skyhawk has undergone many changes.

When the Cessna single engine facility re-emerged in July of 1996, the 172R Skyhawk was reborn. New features included a fuel injected Textron Lycoming IO-360-L2A engine with dual engine driven vacuum pumps, epoxy corrosion proofing, stainless steel control cables, thicker windows and new acoustic soundproofing. Cessna claims the 172R is significantly quieter than the O-320 it replaced, and it can produce its maximum power at just 2400rpm.
