Since its early beginnings in 1955 the Cessna 172 has been the industry standard in flight training on a global scale. Its gentle handling and impressive performance characteristics helped to establish the airplane as the most popular of all time. More Cessna 172's have been sold than any other airplane in the history of public flight.
Fast-forward to 2014: the Cessna 172 is still in production and flying proudly alongside its ancestors. A robust airframe and easy maintenance allows the C-172 to fly for thousands of hours spanning several decades.
Make no mistake, even the earliest models are still delivering the performance and utility they brought in their younger years; capabilities well-matched to their mission profiles.
