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.
