Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) plans to replace its 54-strong fleet of Cessna 172R Skyhawks with the more powerful 172S Skyhawk SP models. The move follows engine performance problems which forced the organisation, based in Daytona Beach, to ground its 160hp (120kW) 172R Skyhawk aircraft less than a year ago.
