Hello, I am a relatively new Cessna 172 student pilot. I've done most of my ab initio training on an A152 and I'm moving onto the 172R next week as my aviation club here in Hong Kong will be shipping away both of the 152s for refurbishment. I only just started my training and moving from a 152 to a 172R, very challenging but looking forward for my first flight on the 172R.

Welcome to the club! You will find the 172 more roomy and comfortable to fly in compared to the 152. My guess is that once you get comfortable with the 172, you won't want to go back to the 152. You'll get spoiled.

This is especially true when you do your cross country flying. Years ago I took a 152 on a six hour plus round trip from Florida to Georgia to look at a Skipper for sale. When I fell out of the 152 at my refueling stop, I could hardly walk. The seats provided little (if any) support. This was my first and last long cross country in a 152.

Good luck with your flight training!

Hello everyone! I have been around aviation all my life with my father being a corporate pilot and instructor , I hung out at the airport all the time... But it wasn't until about 5 years ago that I got my ppl at kozw in Michigan and now own a 1965 172f model based out of Y47 / new hudson, Michigan ... My brother is a flight instructor in kerrville,tx as well... I think I might like to go with you guys to Oshkosh next year in the mass flight... I've never been there before, but it sounds like a blast...

Hi everyone,
My first 17 hours of lessons were in a C-172, about 30 years ago, then there was a break of almost 28 years. I finished my PPL last year at a local school, flying Cherokees. This past summer I travelled a bit to get checked out in a 172 again. I've been keeping an eye on the ads for a while now with a strong preference towards another 172... smile

I sure will. If I can ever figure out how to perform a crosswind landing I think he will cut me loose. LOL

Greetings, all. I signed up a while back, but I'm only getting around to introductions now. The first plane I ever flew was a Skyhawk out of KEFK Newport VT (N739VL) in the 1990s, and I still regularly rent 172s out of W00 Freeway just outside DC (yep, Washington SFRA country). I've also checked out in the 172 with Open Airplane, and always look out for Pilots N Paws missions (whenever time/plane/weather/dog stars align). Looking forward to contributing to the forum. Cheers.

Van Bortel had a nice 172R (N654MA) for sale earlier this year which I think was deregistered for export to the Philippines. You might drop them a line.

Good morning all... I'm a QB at the psp hangar. and very new to this forum. I was Executive Offer for PSPD and flew AIRONE (182)for 100 hours doing aerial surveillance and photo runs, former treasurer for the ANA, Desert Storm Squadron, American legion post, Navy Vet. I have a 1963 P172, with 52 gallon tanks and an STC for the AIA 0360 and a constant speed prop... I have rebuilt the plane and added so many new things. I also re built an Ercoupe 415C with a C90-12-F engine and flew it for 600 hours, sold it and pick up the P172 back in 09 and having a great time flying the fastest P172 in the Valley.. I'll talk more about maintenance later.. I look forward to chatting about 172s, machining, and inventing .. That's it for now... Knightflyer

Like I said last time I'm new here and still trying to find my way around this web site. Can't sleep so here I am thinking of coffee and trying to type. Here at KPSP we try to fly every Saturday morning to breakfast.. somewhere. There is usually two to six planes. We meet at Atlantic where there is always free coffee and the TV news in the Pilot's lounge. Like a gaggle of geese someone becomes the leader, makes a suggestion for breakfast, the gaggle Honks in response and off we go into the wild blue.. I think I'll go for that cup of Jo. Later, Knightflyer

Good morning All. This is a great web site. It'll be better when I learn how to get around in it..I fly out of KPSP in the desert. Where you can see temps of a 120F on the tar matt in August and September. Then you can get ice in late January. We all love it when you get use to it.. Or you can fly up to Big Bear and practice your high Altitude landings at 6,200 feet, give or take a foot. In August you can see Density Altitudes of just under 10,000 feet at around 2:00PM I have landed in my old Ercoupe 415C at 9,200 Density Altitude. I could not fly out until it dropped to below 8,000 feet But I was at half gas and no baggage. (HGNB) Big Bear lake dam is 12 miles west...I cleared that Dam by 1000 feet..So you see SOCAL is a great place to fly. How with my P172 and that 0360 w/constant speed prop.. No "prob-lim-o".. see you all later, Knightflyer
