Introducing the Cessna 162 Skycatcher

The Cessna 162 Skycatcher's timeless high-wing design and large windows give you excellent visibility no matter where you fly, along with the safety and security the design offers to all pilots. Featuring a Continental O-200D engine, the aircraft can allow you to cruise at speeds up to 118 knots, with a range of 400 nautical miles, and a service ceiling of 14,625 feet. The interior features "deluxe skybox seating for a party of two" with its ergonomic seats, flight control sticks, and unique interior styling.

The Cessna 162 Skycatcher interior features the innovative Garmin G300 avionics package, that was specifically designed for this light sport/trainer aircraft in mind. The dual-screen displays provide pilots with primary flight information on one screen while providing engine and moving map features on the other. Apollo SL40 Comm radio and Garmin GTX327 Mode C Transponder also come standard with the aircraft.
