Q: Hi Steve,
I just bought a 1957 Cessna 180. I love the reputation of the 180 as an all-around good airplane.
I live on a farm and wanted an airplane that I could land and operate off grass and turf. And I wanted to do my part to preserve a piece of aviation history—many people don’t realize that flight had only been possible for 53 years when my 180 was built, and it’s now been thriving for 110 years.
It took a while for me to find a good one. I subscribed to Trade-A-Plane and kept my attention focused on websites such as Controller.com and ASO.com, and I even looked at aircraft listings on eBay.
