Cessna C172 Skyhawk 

The Cessna 172 is the most popular training aircraft in the world today. Beginning production in 1956, over 43,000 examples have been produced – more than any other aircraft in history.

Piper PA28-140 Cherokee

The Cherokee 140 is the older brother of the Warrior. With its slab "hershey bar" wing and slightly smaller fuselage, it makes an ideal aircraft for ab-initio training all the way through to PPL. VH-MTB has been upgraded from the original 140hp to a 160hp Lycoming and really gives the Warriors a run for their money in cruise performance!

Over 32,000 examples have been produced - testament to their popularity. Available for training and hire & fly.

Piper PA28-181 Archer II

The Archer is the Warrior’s bigger brother. With a larger engine and gross weight, the Archer makes a great trainer but also a fantastic touring aircraft.

A 300HP engine, variable-pitch propeller, and retractable undercarriage make the Lance a great aircraft in which to gain experience in a faster, more-complex type. Its roomy cabin can carry six adults comfortably at over 145 knots, making it a great touring aircraft. Available for dual training and hire & fly.
