AirplanesUSA proudly presents this pristine, turn-key IFR/Garmin GPS-equipped Skyhawk. This aircraft has been upgraded with a beautiful leather interior, a Garmin 340 audio panel and Garmin 496 panel-mounted GPS with traffic and weather displays along with back-up instrumentation, a JPI digital engine monitor, a 406 ELT, a "refreshed" exterior, and strobes. It has low airframe, engine, and prop times plus several other nice features too!

N172EA is airline pilot owned and has been kept hangared and well-maintained. She flies just as beautiful as she looks and is often complimented especially by those who remember the once great Eastern Airlines (paint scheme was made to resemble the airline's livery with its logo and tail number)! You will not find a nicer C-172 P Skyhawk!

Cessna 172 P's are most desirous because of their improved engines over the previous Skyhawk models plus their higher useful loads. Many endured prolonged flight school duties and currently possess higher airframe times due to Cessna's temporary production stoppage. N172EA is an exception! Don't miss out on this beauty!
