The Cessna 172 - The workhorse aircraft of flight training

Aeropro flies Cessna 172 aircraft for flight training, time building, and scenic flights.  Considered the top aircraft for flight training, the Cessna 172 has been the leading training aircraft for decades. This high-wing aircraft was first manufactured in 1956 and remains in production today. To date, Cessna has produced over 43,000 Skyhawks.

Our aircrafts are maintained in our maintenance shop according to manufacturer requirements by our highly experienced A&P mechanics.



"The view was amazing! Michael was our pilot and he was the best. This will definitely be on our list again when we come back to Gulf Shores!"



"We had a blast! The pilot was really knowledgeable and friendly, best landing I've ever had on a plane by the way, he really knows what he's doing. The flight was the perfect amount of time and we got to chase the Sun down! Would for sure book again! Great price, well worth it!"


"Amazing! Chris and Natalie were so friendly! My son was nervous at the beginning.  Chris made him feel like a co-pilot! We both loved it!"
