KNOW YOUR AIRCRAFT: Cessna 172

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is the ultimate training aircraft and the most popular single-engine aircraft ever built. With standout flight characteristics, great visibility, a sophisticated glass cockpit outfitted with G1000 avionics, slow landing speed and a forgiving stall - the Cessna Skyhawk is a flight training favorite ideally suited for student pilots.

Also known as "The Cessna Skyhawk", The Skyhawk is the most produced aircraft ever as over 44,000 airframes were built since 1955. It is also the most popular single-engine aircraft ever built. The 172 was based on an earlier Cessna design called the 170. Yet, the 172's design was so clean and aerodynamic that Cessna’s marketing department called it the “land-o-matic” because it was so easy to fly and land.
