Description This aircraft is Reims built so is factory corrosion proofed. It is the forerunner of the similar USA built R172 Hawk XP, each having the security of fixed gear and the versatility of the VP CS Prop and, of course, the power of a big engine (although the Rocket has more horsepower than the Hawk XP).
