The four-seat Cessna 172 is one of the most common airplanes used by flight schools—and individual pilots.
Prefer a low-wing model? The four-seat Piper Cherokee and its successor, the Warrior, also are popular trainers.
Although more expensive to rent than the Cessna 172 or Piper Warrior, “the airplane with the parachute” is the best-selling piston single and a hit with passengers.
The two-seat Cessna 150 and 152 are inexpensive to operate, reliable, and easy to fly.
The two-place piston-engine Diamond DA20 is made of composite construction that creates an aerodynamically clean airframe.
Perhaps no other airplane captures the essence of flying’s joy and freedom better than the tube-and-fabric Piper Cub.
