Skycatcher & YinglingYingling Aviation is now the first facility approved by the FAA to maintain, inspect and alter the Cessna 162 Skycatcher. “The receipt of this authority represents a significant accomplishment for Yingling,” said Bob Gallop of Yingling. “Since the Model 162 is a completely new aircraft, we were creating precedent with every step in the process. It required a great deal of cooperation among Yingling, Cessna and the FAA in Washington, D.C.” Yingling is currently the only active Skycatcher assembly site. The firm has completed the reassembly of eight LSA. Customers who ordered Skycatchers can track their airplane’s assembly at www.yinglingaviation.com.
