BGSU Aviation has one of the most modern and well maintained fleet in the region for your flight education needs. We currently have nine aircraft that are continually cared for by our own fleet maintenance department. Additionally, we understand how important it is to have modern equipment for our students to utilize. You won’t see any aircraft from the 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s here. The oldest aircraft in our fleet is a 2001 Cessna Skyhawk and BGSU Aviation currently has plans to begin replacing our fleet with newer equipment within the next couple of years.
