Cessna 172 Skyhawk SP

Cessna 172 Skyhawk SP


With a long reputation as one of the safest, robust and versatile light singles for over 60 years, the Cessna 172 has evolved massively in terms of its interior ergonomics, avionics, payload and range.


This beautifully maintained late-model aircraft has been utilised for intra-company agricultural personnel transport inside Australia's interior almost exclusively since being imported from factory new in 2006. The aircraft offers a Garmin G1000 suite, autopilot, leather seats, UHF radio, newly overhauled Lycoming powerplant, full service logs and NIL accident history among many other features. With the price of a similar aircraft factory new approaching $1M delivered, now is the time to take advantage of the opportunity to acquire an aircraft that will offer you peace of mind, performance and utility, at a significantly reduced price tag.
