The Cessna 172 is unique in aviation history. It was first built in 1956, and today, 65 years later, it is still in production with only minor changes to its design.
With more than 44,000 units produced, it is the most manufactured aircraft in history.
The reason for its success can be found in the fact that it is a single-engine aircraft specifically designed to be easy to fly. In addition, its high-wing monoplane design allows greater visibility than other aeroplanes, making it easier to land.
It is the quintessential light training aircraft, with which most pilots have learned to fly.
It can accommodate one pilot and three passengers, reaches a maximum speed of 226 km/h, and with a full tank of fuel can fly up to 1290 kilometres.
At Blue Team Flight School we currently have three Cessna 172s, in which our pilots will learn to fly with the same safety and efficiency as several generations of pilots before them.
