Turkey based Segmen Flight Academy recently started flight training operations after taking delivery of five new Cessna Skyhawk 172 aircraft.



These five Skyhawks are being used for primary flight training, featuring the proven G1000 avionics system.

“Segmen Flight Academy is considered a pioneer in bringing flight training to Turkey,” said Doug May, vice president, Piston Aircraft, Textron Aviation (the Cessna Company's parent). “With the help of our long-time Authorised Sales Representative in the region, EMAIR Havacilik ve Ticaret AS (EMAIR), we look forward to providing this flight academy with the ultimate training aircraft, the Cessna Skyhawk, to continue growing the flight training market.”

Founded in 2015, Segmen Flight Academy maintains its own airfield to provide flight training and theoretical pilot training in cooperation with regional universities.

The Skyhawk's high-wing design enables superior flying characteristics ideally suited for pilot training.

More Skyhawks have been delivered to customers around the world than any other type of aircraft, with more than 45,000 in service since 1955.
