Cessna 172 is entry aircraft for newbies. Two easy training flights have to be flown before you become Junior Pilot.
We have C172 in our Training Center and MBPV Island Hoppers fleet.
C172 is in every simulator as one of the default aircrafts. Mostly, they are well modeled.
However, if would like to have an advanced payware model, you can find some on the market.
