325SP is a 1999 Cessna 172S. Although it's a couple years older than our other trainers, it's got a lot to offer. This aircraft is powered by a Lycoming IO-360-L2A producing 180 horsepower (134 kW) which gives it lots of speed and lots of lift. The maximum engine rpm was increased from 2,400 rpm to 2,700 rpm resulting in a 20 hp (15 kW) increase over the "R" model. As a result, the maximum takeoff weight was increased to 2,550 lb (1,157 kg). It is outfitted with dual King Nav/Coms, a King GPS and is in great condition, both inside and out.
