Lanier Flight Center operates a fleet of Cessna and other popular aircraft perfectly suited for primary and advanced flight training. Thanks to our meticulous Director of Maintenance, and team of FAA licensed mechanics, you can rest assured that each plane is in top flying shape. In fact, our maintenance standards exceed that required for Cessna’s Phase Card Inspection program.
The optimal plane for sport pilot training, the 162 Skycatcher is also great for private pilot training and satisfies current FAA UAV pilot training requirements. Powered by a Continental O-200 engine with 100 horsepower, the Skycatcher can cruise at speeds as high as 118kts. It also features a Garmin G300 avionics suite, specifically designed for this aircraft. The C162 also includes the "stoke" design, which combines the characteristics of the yoke and stick.
The Skyhawk SP aircraft with NAV II standard gauges provides a perfect training platform for private and instrument pilot certificates. This plane is equipped with KLN 94 color GPS, King KMD-550 multi-function display and Garmin 650 autopilot.
This plane, equipped with the Garmin G1000 NAV III glass cockpit, offers the premier flight training experience. The G1000 integrates all primary flight, engine, sensor, and navigation data to provide an intuitive display of all necessary information. A secure GFC700 autopilot makes for easier cross-country flights. And this Skyhawk also features two, full-color, 10.4-inch, active-matrix LCD displays to improve aviation safety.
Our 1976 Piper Arrow II is the perfect option for a cross-country flight. Featuring a higher useful load and true airspeed than our trainers, this plane is optimal for complex endorsement. It is a great option for pilots training for a commercial or certified flight instructor rating.
This is the perfect plane for weekend getaways. It is fast, reliable and equipped with dual Garmin 430s that include an autopilot feature designed to let you fly with ease.
Our Piper Seminole is available for multi-engine training and rental by approved customers. It presents an affordable option for pilots in need of multi-engine hours. It is also equipped with Garmin 430 and 650 GPS units to aid your pursuits.
Flight Training Simulators
This FAA approved simulator is invaluable as a ground trainer for those pilots questing their instrumental or commercial ratings. Pilots may log 20 hours in simulated instrument conditions and 50 hours toward commercial certificates. This allows perspective pilots to save costs while receiving cutting-edge training.
Approved as a Basic Aviation Training Device by the FAA, this simulator features two rudder pedals to enhance flight training. This allows trainees to log instrument currency for approaches and holdings. And pilots may use this simulator to log 10 hours of training in simulated instrument conditions.
