Review of the NEW Carenado C172

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

This is a review of the new Carenado C172 with G1000, which came out Tuesday 8th.

Let me know what you think and are you interested in tutorials on the G1000?

 

Thanks!  :  )

 

Also, do you think I could have left humour out of this video?

Personally, even though I do have a pretty good sense of humor, I find it distracting in a serious review video.  Other than that, it was a good video.

Thanks for your comment Stans! It's a balancing act, too much humor can get in the way sometimes. Maybe I'll take a page out of Top Gear's book!

I am an old fuddy duddy when it comes to GA aircraft.  My flight lessons were on steam gauge aircraft with one exception.  One aircraft had LCD displays but with a bubble canopy they were impossible to read in the bright sunlight and useless to me.  However my CFI drilled into me not to be too stuck on instrument drill regardless of steam gauges or LCD's--LOOK OUTSIDE he would command me, he wanted me to scan for traffic and always be ready for an engine out situation.  I got so good I could spot traffic even before he could, my eyes got used to anything in motion against the near or distant sky.  The coolest traffic I ever evaded was a blimp over the Renaissance Pleasure Faire east of Mesa AZ, just outside of Apache junction, AZ's seasonal amusement park, bigger than Disneyland.  It looked so tiny as I was cruising at 5000 feet,  2000 feet above the blimp in uncontrolled airspace far to the east of Sky Harbor's airspace.  I could see the blimp below me and the jets flying above me into and out of Sky Harbor.  It waa WOAI in real life, very fun to learn to work with the traffic using a Microlight equipped with a transponder.   Traffic is nothing to fear if you work with the other pilots in the air and ATC on the ground, you just use your eyes and ears but always must remember to fly first, scan next, and comms come last.

rat7, I'll look into that! Carenado seems to be upsetting a lot of it customers I think...
