Learn to fly! Take an aerial tour! Capture some aerial photography!
Based at the Foothills Regional Airport (KMRN) in Morganton, NC, SVN Aviation leases a FAA-compliant, IRF certified Cessena 172 Skyhawk to qualified students and licensed pilots.
The C-172, registration number N996JW, is a four-seat, single-engine, high-wing fixed-wing aircraft made by the Cessna Aircraft Company and is one of the safest and most successful general aviation airplanes in history. Introduced in 1955, more than 43,000 C-172s have been produced as of 2015.
Its 160 HP engine, fixed prop and tricycle gear make our C-172 a superb trainer airplane for beginners. Upgraded with a Garmin 430 navigation and communications system, N996JW is an excellent aircraft for Instrument rating training.
SVN Aviation, LLC also offers FAA-approved sightseeing trips and aerial photography opportunities from either the Cessna C172 or a Piper Arrow. Give us a call. We'll schedule your first flight!
