The computerized 'modern' avionics usually does bring their own fans, so the central one may simply no longer be needed. I am not 100 percent happy about it, because it pulls one point to look at an replaces it with several points of failure.

I don't know why I get all of the weird issues, but, here goes: My daughter and I went from BRY to 2I3 for a fly-in yesterday. To give you the basic info: The trip is only about 50 miles. We fueled the airplane before departure We climbed to 4500'

There's a comparison of the STOL cuffs at My 172E was able to reach book speeds with the Horton kit on. What model 172 are you looking at installing this on? It makes a difference.

I believe the switch was in the early 60's (pointed style). The original teardrop type were fiberglass. On my 150 I actually found a NOS LH pant. Still had the Cessna PN printed inside. My 172 pants (of which I have a few sets) are also fiberglass.

The smoke finally cleared enough for me to willingly go flying. The coastal area is clear, however the interior has some smoke and haze. We stayed clear of the Sierras and foothills, and went to Nancy's at Willows (WLW) airport for some delicious pie

I did EXACTLY that! 4 years ago, my “new” 1957 172, which has the “big” 35 amp generator. Purchased in the middle of October, I soon found myself flying after dark with nav, rotating beacon, strobe, landing and taxi light on... Ended up returning to

That was an interesting question, thanks for asking! I never realized this is possible, but indeed, the TCDS states Number of Seats - 4 (2 at +36, 2 at +70) (For child's optional jump seat, refer to Equipment List.) So neither FAA, nor insurance ha

Anyway, I looked up my 1958 172 Owner’s manual. The forward says the book covers 1957 and 1958. There is very similar verbiage to the 1974 150L book, under procedures. It describes the well known run-up. Then, if there is any doubt as to performance,
