|Cessna 172C Fast Back four place IFR equipped. This 172 just finished up a very intense annual inspection with lots of new or overhauled parts.This fast back has the smooth running TCM O-300 six cylinder engine. With full 40 degree flaps (10/20/30 and 40) makes it a short field dream and will still indicate 105-110 Knots in level flight (125 MPH) as tested during recent flights with half tank and three guys (240/265/180lbs). When I received this project we cleaned, primed and painted lots of the small parts. We took the extra time to remove, "Zinc" the fuel tanks and spray Corrosion X in the wings, tail and every other place we could get to. |
