I flew glass yesterday (sat) in a 172 as well really nice. But you truley must try a 182 with glass now that is simply fantastic. I ave yet to try the Synthetic vision.

Yeah i love the glass cockpit, but it's just to expensive to fly every time.
I would love to fly a 182 glass cockpit, but sadly we don't even have a 182 at my regional airport.

I usually do fly with regular steam gauges, mostly cause it's all i can afford.
It's like a treat when i get to fly the Glass Cockpit.

I like glass become it comes with TISK a form of TCAS. In my area there have been many mid air's one school at my airport had so many midairs that the FAA shut it down.

Steam is all good when you are flying in a low traffic area but in high traffic you absolutely need glass

Yeah it is usually the best to fly, but just so much more expensive to fly.
I do like to fly regular steam gauges on a nice clear day tho, but if it's bad weather or night time flying, i like the glass Cockpit.
