Cessna 172R Total Refurbishment

Updated: Jan 4

This project saw a 1970s Cessna 172R with a total refurbishment. This included an airframe overhaul, new windows, new engine and propeller. It has been repainted with new upholstery throughout and upgraded avionics and autopilot installed.

The result is a very smart looking aeroplane that is great to fly.




Testimonial from our Client:

"Ultimate Aero retrieved a beaten-up Cessna 172R from the Territory for me, stripped it, thoroughly cleaned it and rebuilt it from the basic airframe back up.

The restoration job was big, but no job is too small or too big for Nigel and his amazing colleagues.

The 172R went from a mucky, dented, used-up cattle station ute—to a sumptuous, leather-smelling, gorgeously painted, silky-smooth, economical glass-cockpit IFR platform which vastly outshines any new 172 coming out of Wichita today."
