ATP Flight School Purchases 40 Cessna Skyhawks

Textron Aviation announced an agreement with ATP Flight School for the purchase of an additional 40 Cessna Skyhawk aircraft to be delivered beginning in 2026. This addition to ATP’s existing fleet of nearly 225 Skyhawks, deployed across more than 85 training centres nationwide, will provide students with access to a modern and advanced fleet in support of their pilot career aspirations. This agreement marks the fourth fleet purchase, amounting to a total of 135 Cessna Skyhawks, for ATP’s Airline Career Pilot Program in just over a year, as the flight school scales to train 20,000 airline pilots by 2030. The Cessna Skyhawk is renowned as the go-to training aircraft in the industry. Its steady flight dynamics, cutting-edge avionics and reliable dispatch history have made it ATP’s trusted training platform for the past three decades. Source: ‚Textron‚.
