Our dedicated reviewer Paul Beckwith started to explore the Airfoillabs Next Generation Cessna C172 Skyhawk, but came quickly to the conclusion that this is a comprehensive model with lots of features. No, not lots of feature … a huge amount of features.

According to Paul “Walking up to the C172 NG, the model quality becomes apparent even at a distance. Surface reflections and detail are responsive to light conditions from bright sun to shade with less reflectivity where the skin is in full sunlight. External features as lights, fuel drains, rivets, and seams visible as well. The details only become clearer and more impressive as we move in closer.

But there’s more. Paul continues “In Part 2, We will climb on in, finish our pre-flight, start up, taxi, and take-off. We will then put the Cessna through its paces and try out a few scenarios to see what they do and how they work. Finally, we’ll bring it down to land and wrap it all up.” But let me first offer you this in-depth Part 1 of his Airfoillabs Next Generation Cessna C172 Skyhawk impression. Enjoy the reading.
