Our PlaneTags are made from N6922A, which was built during the first production year of the 172, in 1956. Although 172 and Skyhawk are synonymous now, the name Skyhawk wasn’t used until late 1960 when Cessna was developing the next model, with a deluxe option called the Skyhawk. In the 66 years since the 172 first debuted, it has become the most produced aircraft ever. This appeal of this popular aircraft comes from its affordability, safety, economy, and ease of flying. Generations of pilots all over the world have learned to fly in some variation of a 172, which continues to be the most popular trainer in the world, even after all these years.
