Ypsilanti, MI — Eastern Michigan University Aviation announced today that it has acquired an Ascend 172 from Suburban Aviation for use in its pilot education program. The Ascend 172 is a remanufactured Cessna Skyhawk which has been updated to “nearly new” status with state-of-the-art avionics, new paint, interior and components by Yingling Aviation of Wichita, KS. EMU Aviation operates a fleet of Cessna 172 at its flight training base on Willow Run Airport (KYIP) in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Suburban Aviation, located at Suburban Toledo Airport, was named an Ascend 172 dealer by Yingling in September, 2016 and took delivery of a demonstrator airplane in May of last year.

Wichita, KS — Yingling Aviation’s comprehensively remanufactured light single engine airplane, the  Ascend 172, with a new updated panel and avionics suite featuring Garmin’s recently-announced GFC 500 autopilot, will be on display at the Garmin exhibit during the Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) AirVenture 2017, July 24-30 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  The revitalized N172UF sports a new panel with dual, flush-mounted Garmin G5 Electronic Flight Instruments and a new Garmin GFC 500 solid state attitude-based (AHRS-derived) autopilot situated at the bottom of the center stack. It also features Garmin’s GMA 350 audio panel, GTN 650 GPS/NAV/COM, GNC 255A NAV/COM, and GTX 345 ADS-B In/Out Transponder. The updated panel configuration, along with others offered in the Ascend by Yingling, eliminates the need for a vacuum pump.  N172UF will be on display throughout the show.
