Both the Cessna 150 and 152 are ideal platforms for both training and just-for-fun flying, with their tried-and-true maintenance histories, proven reliability, and talent for sipping avgas. More pilots learned to fly in Cessna 150s and 152s than in any other airplane, so renter acceptance for schools and clubs isn’t even a question.
