There's more to life than
being a passenger!

At Future Flyers of Connecticut, we offer two Cessna 172 model aircraft for use in our flight training programs as well as for rental. Licensed pilots can rent an aircraft to chase the sun on a beautiful, cloudless day or a prospective student, looking to fulfill their dreams, can sit back and relax as an experienced pilot provides an unforgettable Discovery Flight!
Cessna 172 Skyhawks
The Cessna 172 is a high wing (wing above the cabin) aircraft that is the worlds most popular aircraft. It is a 4 seat aircraft with plenty of room for baggage.
Both of our Skyhawks are equipped with a larger engine than original, a 180 hp. installation, that provides an increase in gross weight to 2550 lbs. and a useful load of over 1,000 pounds; more than enough for four passengers and some baggage.
This Aircraft cruises at 110 knots and has a range of over 500 miles with full fuel.
