172s at ATP


New Member
I am working through my material to prep for the PPL written. I received an owners manual for a 1975 172M in my training package. Last year I was working on my PPL at my local FBO and received a 172S PIM.

What model 172s will I be flying? (DAB) and which book would be better for me to study?

ATP uses 172m, p, r, and some sp. I would not worry about studying the PIM. They will give you a handout all about the cessna systems and that is what you will need to study. Mostly what you need to study before you get there is stuff for your PPL written and airspace.

ATP owns a potpourri of 172s. It would seem alot are R models, but there are a handful of much older models as well.
