From Russia with love the Moscow-based ViraZH ordered 79 Cessna 172 Skyhawk aircraft, confirmed the American company. It is one of the larger of such orders for aircraft that will be primarily used for training purposes at at various flight schools throughout western Russia. In Autumn 2014, when all planes have been delivered, ViraZH will have one of the largest fleets of Cessna Skyhawk 172 aircraft of the globe.
The 172 Skyhawk has become the best-selling, most-flown single-engine aircraft in the world. With an all-glass Garmin G1000 integrated flight deck, the Cessna 172 Skyhawk has apparently earned a reputation for offering a good combination of modern features and proven dependability among general aviation aircraft.
