This Great Flying Aircraft is also a Beauty!
IMHO, Cessna's best looking GA aircraft design!
Looks Incredible and Performs Excellent!
Very easy to fly. 
Very stable with forgiving characteristics.
If you are in the market for a 172 or 182, you should also seriously consider a Cardinal. The extra cabin/cockpit space combined with the unobstructed view is amazing.
Once you get used to the field of view (including  above and below) it would be hard to go back to a 172/182.
Ease of entry/exit for front and rear passengers is unlike any other GA Cessna.
We bought this plane for my wife to get her license... Shortly after starting lessons, Medical became an issue. 
I've flown it regularly for the last year. (110+ hours)
7.5/8.0gph @ 110kts

2- David Clark H10-60 Headsets
