Aircraft

At Vital Aviation, students are trained on the same planes they will be flying when they land their first job. First time pilots in the industry start their careers flying Cessna planes – so we make sure that your training takes place in the same plane. That way our students go to their first employer able to get in the plane and go! Your flight training at Vital will take place in a Cessna 172 (4-seater). After learning on this aircraft, there is little or no further training required to fly the Cessna 180, 182, 206, etc. used for entry-level jobs in the aviation industry.
