Should I fly the Cessna 152 or the 172?

The Cessna 152 is the world’s tried-and-true trainer. The 2-seat C-152 is a strong, stable, and durable aircraft and it is powered by a reliable Lycoming engine. Together with an exceptional safety record, the C-152 offers an excellent training environment.
The Cessna 172 is the 4 seater version of the 152. Most people do their initial training on the 152 as it is a little more economical. Larger people however may find the 172 more practical. Quite often much of the cross-country time building is done on the 172 because it is faster and the students will bring passengers on their trips. The 152 is a little less money and the more economical way to go. The choice is up to you.
