Cessna 172s

Its fuel burn rate of approximately 9 gallons per hour gives it a possible range of over 300 nautical miles before needing to stop to refuel. All three of East Hill's Cessna 172s are IFR-certified and feature a Garmin GNS430W WAAS GPS NAV/COM with color moving map. They rent for $122/hour.
