Future Air operates the largest fleet of Cessna 172 aircraft in the Georgian Bay region. With this common fleet of aircraft it allows us to move aircraft from base to base without interrupting anyone's scheduled flight time.
The Cessna 172 was first flown in 1955 and is still in production; more Cessna 172s have been built than any other aircraft. The first production models were delivered in 1956. As of 2008, more than 43,000 had been built.
In Comparing the Cessna 172 to other single engine trainers the C172 is more comfortable and forgiving, making it an ideal aircraft to learn how to fly, to view the majesty of the Earth and to rent for fun or business.
Future Air operates Three Cessna 172s at our Barrie Lake Simcoe Base, One Cessna 172 at the Collingwood base and One Cessna 172 at the Hanover base. With multiple aircraft located at each base there is never a concern with wait times or lack of availability. Our aircraft are maintained to the highest standards.
These excellent flexible aircraft allow for not only Training, but Sightseeing and Aircraft Rental as well.
“Dear Future Air-viator:
For those of us with a passion for aviation, the thought of earning our wings and becoming a pilot is an ambition and an adventure that we have all surely contemplated at one time or another. However, the task is at best daunting to say the least. Full of challenges and hurdles to overcome, and at times, as in my own experience, sometimes seemingly unsurpassable. Of course the end result is an achievement that is well worth the effort, I recommend it highly! And as a recent graduate of the PPL Program at Future Air in Collingwood Ontario, my best advice for anyone following this very same goal is, "Choose Your School Wisely" !!!
As an Elementary School Teacher I have had significant training and experience in accommodating student success; I can assure you that student achievement is hinged intently on instruction that is flexible, professional, accommodating and supportive. The staff and Instructors at Future Air demonstrate these qualities to a very high extent.”
