The Cessna Skyhawk is the ultimate training aircraft and the most popular single-engine aircraft ever built. With forgiving flight characteristics, great visibility, a sophisticated glass cockpit outfitted with G1000 avionics, slow landing speed and a forgiving stall – the Cessna Skyhawk is a flight training favorite ideally suited for student pilots.
The Cessna Skyhawk® is the ultimate training aircraft and the most popular single-engine aircraft ever built.
With the Garmin® G1000™ and GFC 700 autopilot, it delivers an intuitive cockpit experience matched with a highly durable airframe with forgiving flying characteristics. This superior platform is ideally suited to learn the skills needed to become a true pilot in command.
With forgiving flight characteristics, great visibility, a sophisticated glass cockpit outfitted with G1000 avionics, slow landing speed and a forgiving stall – the Cessna Skyhawk is a flight training favorite ideally suited for student pilots.
Two large cabin doors make loading, unloading, entering, and exiting easy and unobstructed.
Pilots and passengers of the Skyhawk will enjoy high-quality leather, contoured seats, customized LED lighting, advanced soundproofing, as well as top-rate multilevel ventilation and air controls.
An optional satellite radio offers ongoing entertainment with your favorite music or radio shows. Optional three-seat training configuration.
The Skyhawk is ideally designed for instructors, students, and observers alike. With seats wrapped in durable Luxor or optional leather, the Skyhawk offers a three-seat training configuration or a standard four-seat configuration.
The Cessna Skyhawk is powered by the latest technology in integrated cockpit avionics, the Garmin G1000 NXi.
With an improved graphical interface, more powerful hardware, higher resolution displays, added functionality to improve situational awareness, and optional wireless technology, managing the flight deck has never been easier.
The flight deck is powered by the Garmin G1000® avionics suite, including optional integrated Garmin Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT™) and an automatic flight control system. Two 10.4-inch, high-resolution liquid crystal displays show flight instrumentation, traffic data, digital altitude, moving maps, navigation, communication, and other real-time flight-critical data.
see the future
The Skyhawk’s flight deck can include the optional Garmin Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT™), which offers sophisticated graphics modeling of terrain, traffic, and obstacles in the flight path. The system looks at the entire flight path via satellite and renders a three-dimensional “virtual reality” landscape, which is displayed on one or both primary flight displays. This technology prepares you for what lies ahead in plenty of time to plan for it and gives you a clear visual of any traffic around your aircraft, even in solid IFR (instrument flight rules) or nighttime VFR (visual flight rules) conditions.
digital weather radar
With the optional GDL 69A data link receiver and a subscription to XM WX Satellite Weather, you will see a high-resolution representation of the weather along your flight path on your high-resolution primary flight display. The GDL 69 offers NEXRAD, METARs, TAFs, lightning, and more that you can layer directly over optional Jeppesen or standard topographic map databases. Global weather information is available through the optional GSR 56, which connects you to the Iridium satellite network. Voice and text messaging connectivity as well as position reporting and digital color radar data are included.
