At Slipstream Aviation, the Grumman Cheetah was carefully chosen as the primary training aircraft. We believe that its flying qualities help to ingrain great habits and techniques in the next generation of pilots. It is not the most forgiving airplane, which in turn requires us as pilots to fly it correctly. The great feedback from our customers, mechanics, and pilot examiners makes us confident in the use of this type of plane as our primary training aircraft. If you are able to compare it to the other planes used for training, we are confident you will agree it is a joy to fly.
We have four Grumman Cheetahs. Each is IFR certified and equipped with a Garmin 430 (color moving map GPS navigator), a second Com/Nav radio, and a 4-place intercom.
$155 per hour, fuel included.
