Cessna built 255 of this particular T-41B series production model for the United States Air force,
be be utilized as their primary student trainer. It has a 210 horsepower Continental IO-360
constant speed propeller, extended fuel tank, modified for STOL
(short takeoff and landing) configuration.
It has an upgraded King Avionics
stack, including a King KMD-150 Color Multi-Function Display interfaced with

1G4 has nicely paved-painted Runway and Ramp, with parking spots numbered.
I was expecting to get greeted asked for a landing fee, but
never was asked. I believe landing fees are waived anyway
if you purchase a tour package. Dennis knew the gate lock combination, didn't have to ask for that.

There is also a
Helipad at the bottom of the canyon, the helicopters fly the river in between the canyon walls.
