For immediate release: Barbers Point Flight School announced today that has purchased a Cessna 172 to add to its fleet of planes used for training and air tours of Oahu.

The Cessna 172 Skyhawk is a four-seat, single-engine, high-wing, fixed-wing aircraft made by the Cessna Aircraft Company. First flown in 1955, more Cessna 172s have been built than any other aircraft.

Measured by its longevity and popularity, the Cessna 172 is the most successful aircraft in history. Cessna delivered the first production models in 1956. As of 2015, Cessna, and its partners, had built more than 43,000 of these planes. (Source: Wikipedia.)
