The LSA market — or Light Sport Aircraft — has arrived. And Phoenix East Aviation has 10 of the new Cessna C-162 Skycatchers on order already for flight training.
With Cirrus and Cessna aircraft manufacturers both entering this field, it’s clear that the “sport” market is hot. The availability of technology in these aircraft is awesome: the latest materials and avionics are found in LSAs that used to be found only in business jets. The selection in avionics ranges from a few standard gauges to glass avionics by Garmin. It seems LSAs are incorporating some of the best characteristics of full sized aircraft, including adding the best avionics available … with the result being a cutting-edge aircraft that is excellent for both a training aircraft (especially in the case of Cessna’s C-162 model that Phoenix East has ordered) and for the recreational pilot to own.
Ask Phoenix East about our fleet of aircraft. As a student you will fly single engine Cessna C-172SP (many equipped with glass cockpits), the new Diamond DA-42 twin engine marvel (PEA is taking delivery now ofthe five aircraft ordered), the aerobatic 8-KCAB for upset recovery training — and soon also the C-162 Skycatcher. Call PEA and talk to an Admissions Officer about how soon you can start your training or check out our web site at www.pea.com. Phone 1-800-868-4359 toll-free in the U.S. or 1-386-254-6842 worldwide.
