325SP is a 1999 Cessna 172SP. Although it's a couple years older than our other trainers, it's got a lot to offer. This aircraft is powered by a Lycoming IO-360-L2A producing 180 horsepower (134 kW) which gives it lots of speed and lots of lift. The maximum engine rpm was increased from 2,400 rpm to 2,700 rpm resulting in a 20 hp (15 kW) increase over the "R" model. As a result, the maximum takeoff weight was increased to 2,550 lb (1,157 kg). It is newly outfitted with dual G5's, a GNS430 and is ADS-B in and out. It is in great condition, both inside and out.
266SP is a 2003 Cessna 172SP. Ironically, this aircraft started it's service life with The Flying School and has now returned home. It's received an all new avionics upgrade early next year and it will match 325SP with the exception of a GNS530 and the autopilot holds both direction and altitude. Heck, you barely have to do anything with this plane!

113MS is our 1996 tail wheel and light acrobatic trainer. Dubbed by the AOPA as the gentle airport kitten, we like to say our Citabria is our super-fun-to-fly airplane! Featuring tandem seating, joystick operation and excellent viewing over the nose, the Citabria makes spin training an enjoyable and valuable part of our aviation curriculum. It has a 160hp Lycoming engine, Garmin GPS and gets 10gph. Once you fly this airplane, you'll understand where it got its name (try spelling it backwards!)
Wet Hourly Rate $167.00 per hour
N198MW a two-seat all-metal side-by-side airplane with a large cabin that seats the occupants ahead of the wing spar for maximum room and superb visibility. It's powered by a modern, fuel-injected Rotax 912 iS Sport engine. This engine is computer controlled for maximum efficiency, and delivers greater torque (and even more aircraft performance) than it's carburetor-fed brother. A gearbox reduction drive keeps the prop in the most efficient rpm range. It features duel screens with duel Garmin G3X's and a Garmin GTN650 for full IFR training capabilities.
