Cessna Sells Large Fleet of Skyhawks To Chinese Flight School

Mixed Buy of G1000 and Standard NAV 1 Equipped Skyhawks

Cessna Aircraft Company is in the process of delivering 42 172 Skyhawks to the Civil Aviation Flying University of China (CAFUC). The airplanes are traveling overseas by boat in 40-foot containers that can carry three 172s at a time.

Deliveries will continue through April.

Twenty-two of the 172s will have the Garmin GA (glass) package and 20 will have the NAV I with ADF (non-glass). In addition to the 42 Skyhawks, the CAFUC also took delivery of six Cessna Citation CJ1s in August. Once primary training is complete in the 172, students begin learning to fly the CJ1s.

The government-owned CAFUC is the country's largest flight training center, accounting for about 90 percent of the pilots produced in China.
