Cessna Aircraft

Cessna’s (152, 162, 172) are the most common aircraft to train in. Versatile and economically priced, the C152/C162 are small 2-seaters, while the C172 is the ultimate 4-seat trainer. Cessna is often referred to as a “high-wing” because the wing is above the cabin.

Piper Aircraft

Another fixed wing aircraft that is great for training in. Similar in size to the Cessna C172 aircraft with 4-seats.  Piper is often referred to as a “low-wing” because the wing is below the cabin.

Diamond Aircraft

The Diamond DA40 is a great introductory plane for pilot’s who enjoy a low wing cockpit experience. The Diamond DA40 is a sleek and fast 4-seater aircraft and great for beginners and experienced pilots alike.

American Champion (Citabria) Aircraft

Back to basics!  The American Champion Citabria is a low cost 2-seat “taildragger” airplane.  The landing gear configuration (third wheel at the back as opposed to the front) forces the training pilot to master important stick and rudder skills from day one.
