Manufacturer:CESSNA AIRCRAFT COMPANY
Type:CESSNA 152
Serial No.:152-85724
Generic Name:152
Aircraft Class:FIXED-WING LANDPLANE
EASA Category:CS-23B: Utility Category Aeroplane
Engines (Propellers):1:   1 x LYCOMING O-235-L2C  ( MCCAULEY 1A103/TCM6958 )

The most significant difference with CGFG  is that it is fitted with the very expensive “Horton Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) kit. You will immediately notice differently shaped wing tips, a re-profiled leading edge, strips on top of the wings, called “fences’ and a sealing strip where the flap joins the wing.

This kit greatly enhances lift output and indeed when the CAA Test Pilot test flew this aircraft, he commented on how much better the rate of climb was than other C152’s. There are no disadvantages to this kit, indeed we found it to be a pretty fast aircraft when trimmed out.

With regards the avionics fit, the number one radio is a Garmin unit which combines a GPS (with a simple moving map) as well as all the other GPS features and  a 720 Comm radio with ’Flip/Flop’ frequency change facility. This is a very versatile unit with a lot of facilities. Read the manual. The ADF, number two radio and DME are very standard.

 

Great fun plane to fly
