The Cessna 172 SP is a four-seat, single engine, high wing, fixed-wing aircraft made by the Cessna Aircraft Company. More Cessna 172s have been built than any other aircraft. 
Measured by its longevity and popularity, the Cessna 172 is the most successful aircraft in history. Cessna delivered the first production models in 1956. As of 2015, Cessna, and its partners, had built more than 43,000.

I don't often giggle with delight, but seeing all the nice touches in the intro videos turned me into a little kid again! Bought it straight away and can't wait to try it out. I almost went back to FSX so that I could fly A2A's aircraft and now it looks like I won't have to. I had no idea this was even under development!
