New Member, New Owner, Student Pilot In a Cherokee 180F


Hello all,
I Started my pilots training in high school in the 80s in a Tomahawk, soloed then ran out of $$. I Took a flight in a North American T28 this summer and the bug bit hard! So I went all in and started flight training again. I just purchased my first plane, N3962R and am headed down to Atlanta next Saturday to pick her up with a friend. She will be based at KGWB while I finish flight training.

  • Brought her home yesterday! Auburn Alabama to Auburn Indiana, 5 hr fight with one refueling stop.

  • That's a weird looking prop but you have a good headset. Enjoy your new airplane.

    Many will dismiss that KR86 ADF as ancient history and suggest pulling it. If you don't need the panel space I'd keep it. Listen to the radio on long cross countries, direction finding if all else fails, poor man’s thunderstorms building detector, fun to navigate like a WWII pilot, ADF still required for some instrument procedures, etc. And if you really want to take it out, I'll buy it as a spare!

    Regards,

    Mike
