Philippine Navy Cessna Receives 4 New Cessna 172S Skyhawks

Our Bureau - : Feb 17, 2022 - : 3:50 am

The Philippine Navy has taken delivery of four new Cessna 172S Skyhawk flight trainer aircraft from Textron Aviation.

The four Cessna 172S Skyhawks join an existing fleet of Cessna 172 training aircraft with the Naval Air Wing at Sangley Point, Philippines. With its slow landing speed and a lenient stall, the Cessna 172S Skyhawk piston is ideally suited for student pilots.

The four aircraft were acquired by the Philippine Navy via a Foreign Military Sale managed by the U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).

Bob Gibbs, vice president, Special Mission Sales for Textron Aviation said the Cessna Skyhawk continues to be the Philippine Navy’s aircraft of choice for flight training.

As the world’s leading flight trainer and the most-produced single-engine piston aircraft Cessna’s 172S Skyhawk delivers an intuitive but sophisticated cockpit experience in a platform ideally suited for learning the skills needed to become a true pilot in command. The light trainer is fitted with a sophisticated glass cockpit outfitted with GARMIN G1000 NXi avionics.
