Epic Acquires New Cessna 172S Skyhawk SP
New Smyrna Beach, FL –
Epic continues to add to its training fleet new Cessna 172s. These are superior aircraft for flight training. Following the lead of the popular Cessna 172R, the new Cessna 172S Skyhawk SP “Special Performance” is for those Skyhawk pilots who require an extra level of performance. The new Skyhawk SP features aggressive take-off and climb performance from its 180 horsepower Lycoming engine, 100 lbs. more useful load than the 172R, standard leather seats, and new external graphics. The Skyhawk SP just raised the standard for single-engine aircraft.
“We will continue to purchase new models of the Skyhawk,” said Danny Perna, CEO. “The Skyhawk is the perfect training aircraft, and Cessna keeps improving on it.”
In addition to flight training, Epic also rents and sells aircraft.
