162 Cessna 172 Skyhawks Flight Training Aircraft Suited for Student Pilots

The Cessna Skyhawk is the ultimate single-engine training aircraft.

ATP operates one of the largest Cessna CE-172 Skyhawk training fleets. All aircraft are equipped with moving-map GPS avionics, with some featuring Garmin's G1000 NXi electronic flight deck and autopilot technology. These 172s are more spacious and offer greater performance than smaller two-seat Cessna 152s, and are used exclusively by students in the Airline Career Pilot Program.

“To start, I would simply say I would not be where I am today without the training I received from ATP. The ATP program sets you up for the fast-pace training I encountered at Endeavor Air… I have met several pilots on the line that have been through ATP and I continue to promote ATP as the best flight school. If flying is your dream, ATP will get you there.”
