In Flight Report: “This is a great flying Skyhawk! The performance of the 180HP is incredible! I was able to get over 1,000 feet per minute during climb out on a 95 degree day! The S-TEC autopilot made flying easy and I was able to focus on navigation and talking with ATC during the 900NM journey home. I am pleased with how well this Skyhawk did”
What a great upgraded Skyhawk! This plane has the right equipment for cross country and IFR flying!
