The Aircraft

Firecrest has a fleet of Cessna training aircraft. All of these high-wing aircraft are fitted with intercom and basic avionics.

This type of aircraft has been popular for training for the past 30 years, and is renowned for its ease of handling and strength.

We have four-seat aircraft for advanced training and touring; the Cessna 172 is a sturdy, fully-equipped touring aircraft, that is an easy conversion for the smaller Cessna 150/152, which make up the remainder of our fleet.

For those who prefer low-wing aircraft, we also have two Piper PA28, one of which has diesel engine. These are also used for advanced training and touring; the PA28 are a sturdy, fully-equipped touring aircraft and these are easy conversion from the high-wing Cessna.
