CESSNA 162

Learn to Fly in Cessna 162 – The Best Aircraft for Private Pilot Training or Sport Pilot Training

CESSNA 162 FLIGHT TRAINING AT VAN NUYS

Designed as a trainer and for personal use, the Cessna 162 was created to be a top-of-the-line tool for flight instruction and leisure flying.

The aircraft has a gross weight of 1320 lbs and an empty weight of 839 lbs, leaving 490 lbs for fuel, passengers, bags, and other variables. While the 162 prefers to be on the lighter side and is easier to control with less weight, it is still possible for a single pilot to bring their necessary gear. Check out our guide on the best pilot gear here.

The Cessna 162 can carry up to 24 gallons of fuel and runs on 100LL aviation-grade fuel. Cessna SkyCatcher is one of the best Flight Training Aircraft for both the Private Pilot License and Sport Pilot License.

Essence Flight School at Van Nuys Airport is fortunate to have three Cessna 162s for daily operation.
