IMPORTANT: This listing is for a 1958 Cessna 172 (yes, before there was an 'A' model). AeroTrader doesn't have this as a listing type in their drop-down selections.Whether you're looking for a weekend trip or a means of chipping a few items off your bucket list, this aircraft has the capability to get you there. This aircraft has been all over Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and through the mountains of Colorado. She's a little anemic in Colorado, but buzzing Pikes Peak at 14,600 feet is a memorable moment no one could ever forget. This aircraft has even been all the way up to Spokane, Washington, and made the journey like it was made for it!A lot of pilots are looking for a dependable aircraft to get them to their next exciting adventure, or in and our of tight airports (like Telluride, or Aspen). Some pilots are looking to finally get their certificate, and demand inherent safety. Maybe you're looking to pick up some barbecue in Austin. Whatever the journey, this lovely bird, named Sally, is sure to get you there and sure to put a smile on your face! She's landed on grass, turf, concrete, asphalt and dirt. She doesn't care what you land on...she's always ready to take back off again!Some pilots aspire to becoming IFR certified. If this is your dream too, this aircraft can certainly get you there..and at a very affordable rate. She has all of the required instrumentation to help you obtain your IFR too! I have personally flown 100's of hours in this aircraft alone and after just 40 to 50 hours, the two of you will become one; you'll learn to communicate with her without saying a single word...and yes, she communicates back with a gentleness found no where else!There aren't many of these aircraft from the original model available and in this good of condition. She is one of a kind! In fact, I have all of the logbooks and records back to 1958. I have a limited digital copy (last 15 to 20 years) available upon request. The data is a total of 800MB, so email will be somewhat of a problem. However, I have always send you specific chunks if you desire. For just $10, I will be more than happy to send you all of the digital records via DVD in PDF via 2nd Day Air FedEx. Feel free to ask!The last annual inspection was September 2015, with no flight time since then. The ELT batteries should still be good, but are D cell batteries if replacement is needed. The transponder inspection was due in 2016. A new compass needs to be installed on the windscreen as the 50A alternator seems to have skewed the compass due to a higher gauge wire being installed in the vicinity of the old compass (originally installed on the instrument panel). Help me give her a good home! Help her find a deserving family! Help your family explore the possibilities and freedoms of going everywhere, for nearly no reason at all!
