Great VFR or IFR aircraft
A classic 70s 172, though this has had some great refurbishing. The paint is smooth and shiny, and the front seats are comfortable. It looks like thy were reupholstered recently.
The controls are crisp and the engine is well tuned and the lights are LEDs. With a HSI and heading bug, I had no problem with a bit of actual IMC on a long trip to LA. There are a few spots where the airplane shows its age, but generally it's a good standard 172.
Fly here! With the greatest Team you can imagine. Everything was perfectly fine. California Airways will take care even when the flight is over. Fast reaction, finding Solutions for any need, including recommendations for your desinations. There is nothing to improve. They are just the best I can think of.
Great plane, new engine, great condition.
basic avionics are solid, GPS was a bit dated.
