Of The Kremlin
- Nov 25, 2001
Are you a St Louis fan, a birdwatcher, or by chance are you an owner or fan of the Cessna 177? I'm a frustrated cardinal owner wannabe. If I ever start work and things settle down I'm interested in getting one. Just wondered if you might be a souce of info.
I've started looking at 182s also--seems like an SUV of a Cessna that is just a solid honest airplane.
What do you know about autogas STCs? Are they "penny wise and pound foolish" as far as maintaining your engine to TBO, or do they do just fine?
I stopped by an FBO and saw AVGAS at 2.50/gal, then filled up my expedition this weekend at .92 cents on a trip to Mississippi. That got me thinking that an older skylane, even though it had a higher hull price, might be a more economical alternative (even at 15 gph) if I could burn Mogas.
Again--I'm an airplane owner wannabe--talk to me as if I were a small child when you explain the issues to me
Thanks for your reponse.
