Rates in comparison across the world:
Europe: a piper Cherokee, comparable to a Cessna 172, rents for about $150 U.S./hr, and a twin is $300 U.S./hr plus! reference: Plane and Pilot magazine, Flying In Europe
USA: A random Google™ search revealed rental rates from $70/hr to $90 US for a Cessna 172. You may be surprised to find that most schools charge for headset use, one had a rate of $7 Can. per hour for a headset! (LFC Headset use if free with aircraft rental)
