A brand new, Cessna Skyhawk 172 airplane, worth more than $400,000 and bearing LeTourneau University’s logo arrived today at LETU’s Abbott Aviation Center as part of the university’s participation in the Cessna Top Hawk program.
LETU was one of only FOUR universities across the nation to be selected to participate in Cessna’s Top Hawk Program and receive a new, LETU-logo-branded airplane to use for the next six months, from February through September. LETU President Dr. Dale A. Lunsford drew names from a pot to award Top Hawk caps and T-shirts, and one lucky winner was awarded the first training flight in the airplane shortly after the ceremony. .
