The Redbird LD logs more hours than any other craft in our fleet. It is reconfigurable, so it allows our students to train for single or multi-engine and offers a multitude of aircraft choices. The Redbird LD has +200° wrap-around visuals, realistic flight controls, interchangeable cockpits, a user-defined missions database, a complete terrain, and airport database, and is an FAA Certified Advanced Aviation Training Device. This device will soon be your favorite for efficiency and quality of training. It is significantly less expensive than flying the plane and further saves you money by accelerating the learning curve.
Newest in the 172 line, the SP builds on the knowledge and experience Cessna has gained from over 50 years of producing single-engine, light aircraft. Boasting advanced avionics, more horsepower, and a host of technical innovations, the SP could almost be considered a new design.
Nevertheless, the SP retains the rock-solid reliability and inherent stability of the entire Cessna line and is one of the most outstanding examples of a touring-class aircraft on the market today.
Boasting a KMD multi-function display, dual KX 155 Nav/Coms, a KLN 94 IFR certified color GPS, and a KAP 140
autopilot with altitude hold and altitude pre-select, CFA’s 172SP is capable of flying a precision approach to minimums while you eat lunch. With its 180 HP, fuel-injected engine, the 172SP is also one of the most comfortable aircraft in the world to fly.
The Beechcraft Duchess BE 76 is a four-seat, light, twin-engine aircraft that makes an ideal trainer. With its 180 HP engines, constant speed propeller and retractable gear, it cruises at 150 knots and is ideal for those long navigational flights. The Duchess has been a solid and reliable trainer since introduction.
Many refer to Beechcraft aircraft as being the Cadillac of the sky, and the Beechcraft Duchess is no exception. CFA utilizes its Duchess for Private and Commercial Multi-Engine endorsements, as well as Multi-Engine Instrument and ATP ratings.
V1.0: Meet the new certified single-engine aircraft by Vulcanair.
Built tough, the V1.0 favors durable metal versus expendable plastic materials.
The V1.0 is in line with Vulcanair’s design philosophy: the quest for
durability, safety and exceptional value.
Vulcanair has decided to leverage its long experience in designing and manufacturing more complex certified multi-engine aircraft to supply an exceptionally priced single engine aircraft to allow more pilots to become members of the Vulcanair Aircraft owners family.
Excellent aircraft performance, state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, modern avionics and exceptional value in terms of acquisition costs make the V1.0 a serious alternative in today’s piston single engine aircraft arena.
The V1.0‘s structure is a combination of welded steel tubes arranged in an articulate reticular fashion (main cabin) coupled with a riveted aluminum wing, tail cone and empennage sections. This arrangement insures a strong protective cabin for pilot and passengers and a lightweight structure altogether.
