Our 152 is a great IFR trainer for pilots under 200 pounds. It is equipped with dual Garmin G5's (mini glass cockpit) plus King and Garmin navcoms and GNS430 (WAAS) GPS, as well as a King ADF.
Our most recent addition is Captain America, a 1963 C-172. "Cap" comes from the Reno area, and is a nice low time 1963 172 with basically the same King & Garmin radio package we have in the rest of the planes. If you like moving maps, you will love Cap. He has two Garmin GPS's! Cap is a day/night VFR only airplane.
For more advanced students seeking their Commercial Licenses, we have a beautiful Piper Arrow with a Garmin & King panel, which includes a GNS430W (WAAS) GPS and a Garmin G500 EFIS ("glass cockpit")
To make transitioning easy, we have the Garmin GNS430W coupled with the Garmin GTX345 transponder in all of our planes.
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!

2559U "Cap" (for Captain America!) is our newest member of the club. He has the WAAS GNS430 like the rest of the planes, plus he has an additional Garmin GPS unit with a very nice moving map display. Priced at $110/hr, Cap is a day/night 'VFR only' aircraft, with a single VOR, and is perfect for all of your private pilot training! Cap has ADS-B in and out, with the traffic displaying on the screen of the Garmin GNS430W unit. In Spring 2020 a complete top overhaul with new Millenium cylinders was completed.
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
