170 Gets the Job Done

The Cessna 170 is a perfect aeroplane as it offers the ideal balance between commuter, freight haulier, bush plane, trainer and an overall fun plane to fly around. The 170, because of its four seats, can be used for a family vacation or business flying, depending upon your need.
