CESSNA 172

Cessna-206-web

The Cessna C172 was first built in the 1950’s and has since become the most popular mass produced aircraft ever. The C172 is renowned for its robust airframe, reliability and safety, making it the best option for basic and intermediate training. The Cessna 172R is equipped with traditional analogue instruments, providing students with exposure to the standard ‘6 pack’ instrument configuration arming them with the knowledge and skills required to pilot the older aircraft that still form the backbone of most charter fleets within Australia. We also operate the modern Cessna 172SP with the Garmin 1000 glass cockpit panel providing perfect transition to glass for the students wishing to follow this path. The C172 is a tried and tested machine that has formed the foundations of many students around the world.

CESSNA C206T

Cessna-206-web

The Bruce Hartwig Flying School believes that all training must be undertaken in “real world” type aircraft such as our Cessna C206. The Cessna C206 is the workhorse of small scenic operators and charter organisations both within Australia and around the World, the same businesses that will give newly qualified Commercial Pilots their first break into the world of commercial aviation. At Bruce Hartwig Flying School we use the Cessna C206 for the final stages of a Commercial Pilot’s training to give our graduates the edge. We believe strongly that this experience in our C206 commercial trainer is why our graduates have such an incredible success rate in gaining commercial pilot employment, straight from our school.
