RE: Highest Altitude In A C-172?

I've taken our school's C172SP up to 12,500. Great for hopping over the mountains. Just make sure your only up there for 1/2 hour or less... With two people and about 3/4 tanks we were seeing a climb of about 400fpm from 9,000' and up. Although I have done better in our Diamondstar, the climb is abo...

RE: Meigs Field Destroyed

Why all the concern for flight simmers? Heck they can probably lobby Microsoft to keep Meigs in the new versions of flight sim if they want. The real loss is for the real pilots out there that have used or use Meigs regularly.
