Excellent choice for a slightly older, steam gauge, 180hp Skyhawk! Very comfortable despite high temps. Matt who got us set up with the checklist and keys was very helpful with the local procedures. Las Vegas Approach handled us exactly to plan and the views of the Strip, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead could not have been better. The bird was down a quart of oil at preflight (extra quart was in baggage) but otherwise an absolutely perfect day. Thanks Airworks and Open Airplane!
Love the 160hp with Powerflo for 180hp to climb around Grand Canyon recreation area. Team was great to work with, super helpful and helped make a lifetime memory for us.
Solid C172N model with a 180HP power plant, which was helpful on a high temp, high density altitude day trip for two to the Grand Canyon (KGCN).
Perfectly acceptable C172N. Becon is in-op but otherwise good to go. I plan on flying it again the next time I'm in Vegas.
A solid older 172N, this seems to be in good mechanical condition with the usual wear and tear of an older trainer. I reported a couple minor snags to the operator, but found nothing in an unairworthy condition. The 180 HP makes a difference with climb rate, and is well worth the extra cost.
This airplane is a typical pre-1986 example of a Skyhawk - not in perfect condition but very much a serviceable airplane and it flies nice. Took it on a tour "around" Las Vegas and had no issues. Would gladly rent again. Shannon and the rest of the folks at Airwork Las Vegas are great to deal with as well.
Great plane, highly recommend using Airwork for your next Vegas flight. We took it over the Grand Canyon for some exceptional views. I don’t recommend landing at 1G4 unless you want to pay $50 for a bus ride to see the Canyon.
A very well cared for plane that flew great! A solid 180 horsepower mid-to-late 1970s Cessna 172N with 40 degrees of flap available, and a Garmin 430W at my command.
A CFI, unsolicited, was kind enough to give me a quick orientation on the unorthodox install of the radio set, but nothing problematic. Overall, the support staff at Airwork were easy to work with - super nice & polite, with interesting conversation aplenty - especially with it being a early Sunday morning!
If you are going to fly, you should have fun and enjoy the experience - and this plane and FBO delivered, over and above, on both counts. They have earned my highest recommendation! But don't take my word for it - try them out for yourself!
A solid plane that I'd be happy to fly again. Windows open fully, a plus for taking photos. The radios are OK: you'll want to use #3, the GNS 430; #1 works, but barely; there is no #2.
Great plane for the price/age, well-maintained and a current database (awesome) in the Garmin 430. Best part of the experience is Airwork though. Incredibly helpful and easy to work with. Highly recommend them. Best experience I have had at VGT.
As before, I had a great experience with Airwork Las Vegas. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the plane was a well used trainer as expected, and it appears to be well cared for. Upgrade the GPS to a WAAS unit and I'll give it 5 stars. :) Hope to be back soon!
