Message From the Owner

I purchased my airplane back in 2006 from a guy in the Houston area because local rental availability was just too difficult to deal with. I wanted to be able to fly whenever the mood struck. For me flying not only provided relaxation and entertainment, but also a convenient means of transportation. I enjoyed being able to attend family gatherings without the long drives. Being self-employed, I also enjoyed the ability to return quickly to address my business affairs. Finally, to top it off, I was fortunate enough to utilize my pilot skills to take part in a number of charity flights. Unfortunately, I have recently been handed some medical challenges that have put extra burdens on my flying and reduced the practicality. Therefore and a bit reluctantly, I have decided to sell. I hope the new owner gets as much enjoyment from this great airplane as I have. ~Charles

This 1976 Cessna 172/180 HP Conversion is a great find. The airframe has average time, is solid and comes with a complete set of original logs. The engine has low time since major overhaul by Airplains. The plane is IFR equipped with a Garmin GNS430W, a Garmin audio panel, a Garmin transponder with ADS-B and more. If you are looking for a simple to fly and easy to maintain Skyhawk with a little extra punch that the conversion provides, this is your chance. At this price, it will not be available for very long, so be sure to contact is right away!
