N300KZ

1962 Cessna 172 C:

  • 180hp, Lycoming 

  • Aspen 1000 PFD

  • Garmin GNC 255 Radio

  • Garmin GTX 330 Transponder

  • S-Tec 20/30  Autopilot

  • Garmin GNX 375 GPS

  • JPI 700 Engine Analyzer

With a generous suite of avionics, crystal-clear audio, ADS-B in, touchscreen navigation, and AoA with audio alerts, you will feel like you are in a 2021 model aircraft!

Try out her large, backlit “Playback” button to hear the last transmission from ATC.  No more “say again” when you were too busy.  A conveniently placed “Go Around” button lights up on approach and will load the missed-approach into the navigator when pressed.  No need to fumble through menus at a high-workload moment.  Need to mute that annoying traffic alert voice, there is a nice button that lights up when you have traffic.  Don’t forget to use the JPI EDM-830 to monitor engine temps and it talks to the navigator for predicted fuel range.  Have fun with the fully-loaded AV-30-C hanging out as the backup AI.  Just because it is backup, doesn’t mean you can’t use it!  It has a rich feature set and looks right at home in Hannah’s panel that was hand-painted by a local artist.  The GNC-255A is tied to the navigator so it will show the names for the frequencies you have selected, based-upon where you are.  All the breakers function as switches, so the A/P power is located there.  The red buttons on the yoke are A/P disconnect switches for the STEC-20 autopilot.  Our apologies, but there is NOT a convenient place to mount an iPad, but the navigator will give you terrain, traffic and weather, and it will load your flight plan from your iPad, so there really isn’t a need to keep it in-front of you.

Oh, and speed?  Yeah, she’s got some speed…  With a 180hp engine, speed mods and a fastback (no rear window), she goes faster than a 172 should.  Nice upgraded breaks will slow her down, but that shouldn’t be an issue with 40 degrees of manual flaps to help get her slowed before touchdown.
