The Cessna C172 was first built in the 1950’s and has since become the most popular mass produced aircraft ever. The C172 is renowned for its robust airframe, reliability and safety, making it the best option for basic and intermediate training. The Cessna 172R is equipped with traditional analogue instruments, providing students with exposure to the standard ‘6 pack’ instrument configuration arming them with the knowledge and skills required to pilot the older aircraft that still form the backbone of most charter fleets within Australia. We also operate the modern Cessna 172SP with the Garmin 1000 glass cockpit panel providing perfect transition to glass for the students wishing to follow this path. The C172 is a tried and tested machine that has formed the foundations of many students around the world.
