RNAC have 3 Cessna 152’s – VH-RNO, VH-RNQ and VH-RNC, two of which are aerobats.
The Cessna 152 is a two-seat, fixed tricycle gear general aviation airplane, primarily used for flight training. Probably more pilots trained learned to fly in a Cessna 150/152s than any other single model of airplane.
The 152, first delivered in 1977 as an upgrade of the long serving Cessna 150. The 152 featured a long-overdue increase in engine power with the Lycoming O-235 engine featuring an increase in cabin size.
Cessna ceased production of the 152 in the mid eighties but it still retains a popular following from many pilots worldwide.
It has been stated that more than 75% of the 152s built are still flying today, providing an operational life span well beyond expectations of the day.
