How much faster is a Cessna 182RG than a fixed gear 182?

November 3, 2008

I’m considering purchasing an aircraft. I’ve got time in 172’s and 182’s. I’m a pretty new pilot. I’m wondering if the increased cruise speed of the 182RG (Retractable Gear) makes it a more practical plane for me. I also wonder what additional costs are associated with the maintenance of the retractable gear.

On maintenance, you’ve got to jack the aircraft at 100 hour inspections, and do squat switch inspections, emergency extension inspections, check all the hydraulic lines, check the hydraulic pump, lights, up and down locks. Grease the gear, as well as maintenance on all the up and down limit switches.

Aero-TV: Quite The Type-Rating… Checking Out In The DC-3

November 3, 2008

Get Checked Out In Dan Gryder’s Herpa DC-3

Recently, we talked to Dan Gryder… who may just be the luckiest guy in aviation… as he gets paid to fly a spotless, pristinely-maintained Douglas DC-3 throughout the country, and even offers interested pilots the chance to earn the ONLY DC-3 type rating available today. ANN’s Paul Plack talked with Dan about that process, what it takes and how YOU might be able to join the few who can proudly point to the DC-3 type-rating on their pilot certificates.

When Dan Gryder isn’t flying passengers around the world in 757s and 767s for a major airline, he can be found providing DC-3 flight instruction at his training center or shaking hands and offering DC-3 tours at air shows. He has over 11,000 flight hours and type ratings in numerous large aircraft. He’s been a flight instructor for more than 25 years and holds the FAA designations of GOLD SEAL CFI, CFII, MEI, ATP and AGI.

Dan and his team of DC-3 experts operate what appears to be the only remaining DC-3 flight training schools, based near Atlanta. If you’re looking for more than just an introductory lesson or two, Dan and his team provide complete pilot in command and second in command training — all the way through the actual type rating.

The ‘Gooney’ is no stranger to World War II veterans and historians who will remember the DC-3 as the C-47 Skytrain. The military version of this remarkable flying machine aircraft was used by Allied Forces to transport troops and supplies around the world. The plane was nicknamed “the Gooney Bird” as it swiftly earned a rep as a sturdy (even forgiving) and reliable workhorse — capable of flying nearly anywhere in almost any weather. The US Navy referred to a modified version of the plane as the R4D and the British called her the Dakota. Still others called her the Skytrooper. No matter what you call her, she’s a piece of aviation history to be treasured.
