Cessna Skyhawk SP


With more than 43,000 delivered, the Cessna Skyhawk is the best-selling, most-flown airplane ever. Maybe that’s because of its proven reliability. Or its forgiving flight characteristics. Or its reputation as the safest general aviation aircraft ever built. Because not only is the Skyhawk the most direct route to fulfilling your dreams of flight, it’s also an ideal instrument trainer and one of the world’s truly great airplanes. And with 180 horsepower attached to a high-performance McCauley propeller with polished chrome spinner, the Skyhawk SP climbs faster and cruises at a greater speed than the original Skyhawk.
