Cessna 180 Skywagon
Tail Number: N5216D
Submitted by: Gerald C (Jerry) Holly Jr
I am a 35 year Alaska Cub pilot and just sold my 180 hp PA-18 Cub and purchaced a 1957 "Cream Puff" Cessna 180A, a little over a year ago. I just completed my "knowledge" test for my Instrument Rating. I am planning on completing my flight training this year with my son Shawn for our instrument ratings. This newly installed IFR equipment will let me fly my own aircraft for the majority of the time required for our instrument ratings. My main goal is to become a better/safer pilot at age 70. I am thankful to tell my grandkids that your never to old to learn....!
