The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is the top-rated single-engine flight training aircraft in the world. 


We purchase new aircraft directly from Cessna, so our student pilots and passengers enjoy state-of-the art avionics and equipment.


More Cessna 172s have been manufactured than any airplane in history!


FLY VFE operates a fleet of 15 Cessna C172s which serve as both training aircraft and personal transportation shuttles for both passengers and our flight crews.
