Fixed wing flight training has taken off with our new PiperSport / Sport Cruiser Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) complete with Garmin 696, parachute (Ballistic Recovery System - BRS) and leather seats.  The large canopy provides incredible visibility.  This is truly a "FUN" machine.

The pilot is provided with the ultimate in situational awareness and comfort. The composite airframe has captured the latest technology in both construction and aerodynamics. With a 200 horsepower engine, the Cirrus SR20 has a cruise of 155 kts that can get you where you want to go in style and flare. The ultimate in aviation safety, comfort, style, and ease has been discovered in the Cirrus SR20!
