University Of Dubuque Orders Four Skyhawks

Cessna To Deliver The Aircraft In September

Cessna announced at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014 an order for four 172S Skyhawks from the University of Dubuque in IA. Delivery of the aircraft in September will complete the transition to an all Garmin G1000-equipped training fleet for the school’s aviation degree programs.

“With a G1000 fleet, the UD aviation program will take a leadership position and continue to offer its student pilots an avionics system that will prepare them for the advanced aircraft they might move on to fly once they graduate,” said Joe Hepburn, senior vice president of Propeller Aircraft. “We have developed a great relationship with the University of Dubuque over the years, doing our part to help build a comprehensive aviation degree program that continues to turn out passionate, first-rate pilots and aviation professionals.”

Dubuque manages a training fleet of 15 Skyhawks and will replace its remaining four 172R aircraft with the new 172S models. Dubuque’s flight training department began operating Cessna aircraft in 1973.

The Cessna Skyhawk has become the world standard as a training platform and has earned a reputation for offering the best combination of modern features, including the G1000 avionics system, and proven dependability. There are more Skyhawks in the world than any other type of aircraft, as more than 48,000 of the model have been designed, manufactured and delivered since 1955.
