The Cessna is a single-engine, fixed landing gear airplane powered by a fuel-injected Lycoming IO-360. The Bendix/King avionics panel features dual KX-155 nav/com radios, and approach-certified KLN-89B GPS, and autopilot. These features make the airplane an excellent primary trainer as well as an ideal instrument training platform. The current rate for the Skyhawk is $130 per hour Hobbs time. Block rates are also available.

In order to rent as pilot in command, you will need to accomplish a checkout with one of our instructors. The checkout involves an open-book wrtten test concerning aircraft systems as well as operations in Class C airspace, along with a flight of approximately one hour.

We will also need to make copies of the following documents:
  • Pilot certificate
  • Medical certificate
  • Driver’s license or other government-issued photo identification
  • Copy of logbook page reflecting either total time or Cessna time in type
Once you have finished your checkout and retained a copy of our renter’s regulations, you are ready to go. If you are taking the airplane for multiple days, we do have a 2.5 hour per day minimum except by prior arrangement and approval by the Director of Operations.
