The brand-new, fully loaded Cessnas, equipped with Garmin G1000 avionics and autopilot, are part of CAU’s continuing investment in equipment and resources for students.

The six new aircraft join CAU’s fixed-wing fleet of Cessnas 172S, Cessna 150, Beechcraft Baron B55, Super Decathlon, and Citabria aircraft.

CAU will continue updating and expanding its fleet for its growing student population with plans to acquire new aircraft in 2022 and 2023.

The university offers programs in aviation, aviation business, and aircraft maintenance, with “on-airport locations throughout California and Arizona.”
