Cessna CE-162 Skycatcher



The Cessna model 162 is a certified all-metal, single engine piston, high-wing monoplane with a two-person seating capacity including the pilot.


Cessna registered 94 C-162 Skycatchers in 2012. The former S-LSA being a Primary Aircraft, the first such in 20 years. The switch allows it to be sold in Europe once it meets certification standards and allows a higher gross weight there: The S-LSA version was hamstrung by low payload. Sport pilots can still fly it, but must stick with the limitations of the license (no night flying, 10,000 feet max altitude etc.). Price 2012: US$149,900.
