Cessna Skycatcher Walkaround
By Carmelo Turdo
The Cessna Skycatcher has become a staple of many Cessna Certified Pilot Centers, and one resides at Air Associates of Missouri on the Spirit of St. Louis Airport north ramp. The Skycatcher (C162) has been used in the training role, fitting comfortably in the light sport category. A replacement for the Cessna 152 family of training aircraft, the C162 has emerged as an important player in the general aviation industry's efforts to develop the next generation of pilots. The following Skycatcher walkaround features views of the Air Associates of Missouri aircraft at several events this year.
