Cessna 172 Familiarization Course

Become familiar with the systems, limitations, procedures, techniques, and notes that will make your introduction to the Cessna 172 simple! In-flight video is combined with clear, concise multimedia presentations and quizzes, covering all pertinent information to get you started on our journey to proficiency with this popular Cessna aircraft.

With material and in-flight video created and organized by CFIs with thousands of hours of experience, this course focuses on the key points necessary to become familiarized quickly and to get the most out of the Cessna 172, which may be the world’s most popular training aircraft. 

Do the gauges on the right look familiar? 

It’s probably not surprising; taking its first flight in June of 1955, the Cessna 172 Skyhawk is the most produced aircraft in the world.

The 172 (a modified variant) even holds the flying endurance record, at 150,000 miles without landing.  That’s 64 days, 22 hours, and 19 minutes of flying, non-stop.
