NCA, New Central Airservice Co., a long-established domestic airline headquartered in Ryugasaki, Ibaraki Prefecture, invites you to embark on a journey in the skies aboard a nostalgic Cessna plane!

The Cessna 172, an iconic American four-seat high-wing aircraft, took its first flight in 1955 and has since become the most-produced aircraft worldwide.

NCA promises a unique adventure with 17 diverse Cessna flight courses launching from Ryugasaki Airfield.

Explore Ibaraki with flights to Ushiku, Tsuchiura, Mito, Itako, and other domestic destinations. Observe local attractions such as Tsukuba Mountain, the 120-meter Great Ushiku Daibutsu Buddha (the Great Buddha statue), Kairakuen Garden, and more.

Or go further: embark on flights over Chiba Prefecture, including Disney Resort or Tokyo, featuring breathtaking views of iconic landmarks like Tokyo Skytree and Asakusa, Shinjuku, Tokyo Tower, and the Imperial Palace, and more. Brace yourself for exhilarating maneuvers between the skyscrapers of the world’s most populous city!

From the shortest flights circling Ryugasaki Airfield in 8 minutes to the longest, a 174 km round trip to Yokohama via Tokyo in 90 minutes, NCA caters to a multitude of preferences. Depending on the course and weather conditions, a flight can reach heights from 300 meters up to 600 meters and speeds from 100 km/h up to 200 km/h.

Beyond the breathtaking views, Cessna flights are also remarkably budget-friendly when compared to helicopter pleasure flights, offering an experience that is at least half the price!

Customized courses according to requested destinations can also be arranged.
