Cessna 172S Sky Hawk

For those looking for a little more room than a light sport airplane can offer or a modern and capable instrument platform, the Cessna 172 is a plane of choice. Chesapeake Sport Pilot's 172S is the latest model of the Cessna 172 Sky Hawk series. First rolling off the line in 1956, the Cessna Sky Hawk has become the most successful light airplane in history thanks to its roomy design, good performance, and docile handling. Our 172S maintains all of these qualities while featuring the state of the art Garmin G1000 glass panel.

CSP offers our C172 for rent as well as for instrument training. Additionally, primary students can train on the C172 towards a recreational or private pilot certificate.
