1977 Cessna 172N Skyhawk II – N734NA

Our Primary and Instrument training aircraft, 4 November Alpha is a very clean, well-maintained version of the most widely produced Skyhawk which has been a single owner aircraft since 1984. It is not the same Skyhawk that came from Wichita in 1977.


  • a 180 horsepower conversion replacing the stock 160 HP engine. This gives 4NA about double the climb rate and slightly faster speeds.
  • a gross weight increase from 2300 pounds to 2550 pounds. Makes it a C182 ‘light’ and a true 4 passenger aircraft with full fuel tanks.
  • Completely repainted with Imron and a new interior in 1990.
  • Garmin 430 WAAS GPS equipped, giving precision capability instrument approaches to most airports.
  • Goodyear stormscope / strikefinder for lightning detection.
  • S-TEC, System 20 autopilot.
  • PS Engineering 1000, 4-place intercom.
  • Rosen see through sun visors, the industries best.
  • Improved instrument and panel lighting for night operations.
  • LED landing and taxi lights which are super bright and practically ‘break-proof.”
  • excellent interior and exterior, constantly maintained.
  • all new glass.
  • additional insulation for warmth and quieter travel.
  • air leaks sealed so quieter and warmer inside.

Future Improvements:

  • Plans are to put in an HSI and GPSS steering to bring it more up to date with current capabilities in newer aircraft.
