For Sale
Cessna FR-172 Reims Rocket


Year of construction  1973

Description  This is a Reims built FR172J so it is factory corrosion proofed. It is, in fact, the forerunner of the similar USA built R172 Hawk XP, each having the security of fixed gear and the versatility of the VP CS Prop and, of course, the power of a big engine (although the Rocket has more HP than the Hawk XP).
