150/152 Reimagined

AOPA has partnered with Aviat Aircraft to create Reimagined Aircraft. Placed into a flying club, partnership or flight school, refurbished Cessna 150 and 152s can be owned and operated for approximately $81 per hour, including fuel.

The Airplanes

Both the Cessna 150 and 152 are ideal platforms for both training and just-for-fun flying, with their tried-and-true maintenance histories, proven reliability, and talent for sipping avgas. More pilots learned to fly in Cessna 150s and 152s than in any other airplane, so renter acceptance for schools and clubs isn’t even a question.
