For your training needs, we are offering a very well equipped IFR 1978 Cessna 152 with a 140 hp engine. With a dual Garmin G5 installation, coupling the HSI to the GNS430W, nobody has a 152 like this! (Think "mini-glass cockpit")
We've also got about the prettiest 1961 Cessna 172 around. Many of the Private Pilot as well as Instrument students do their training in the 172 ("Ray") and of course the 152 ("Juliette Yankee") is also available for both Private and Instrument training.
At just $100 an hour, the 152 is the best equipped for the price IFR trainer in the area. However, due to the size of the 152, weight restrictions do apply, so contact us for more details about which trainer will be your best fit.
13154 (nicknamed "Bill") is now receiving last touches on interior and avionics upgrades. He's now equipped like the rest of the SRFC airplanes, consistent with our goal to make our planes very well equipped with the same Garmin equipment, for easy transitioning.
For more advanced students seeking their Commercial Licenses, we have a beautiful Piper Arrow with a Garmin & King panel, which includes a GNS430W (WAAS) and a Garmin G500 EFIS ("glass cockpit")
One of the best things about our planes is that we have the Garmin GNS430 in ALL of them, which streamlines your transitioning from plane-to-plane. No more getting in a new plane and having to learn all new radios!
ALL of our planes are equipped with ADS-B IN and OUT, meaning you can see the live traffic on the GPS screen. A VERY valuable tool at Idaho's busiest airport!

13154 ("Bill") 1974 Cessna 172. The panel is almost identical to the other trainers, with a Garmin GNS430W (WAAS), ADS-B "in and out" showing live traffic and weather* on screen (#1 CDI is GPS or VOR/LOC glideslope), a Garmin GTX345 xpdr, Garmin GMA340 audio panel, King KX-155 navcom (#2 CDI is VOR/LOC).
The * is to warn pilots that NO weather is real live time. There is ALWAYS a delay, which can be as high as 8 minutes or more. NEVER get too close to weather, based on what you see on a screen. a
