July 2014- Q: Hi Steve,
I own a 1966 Cessna 182. Yesterday another guy in my hangar row asked if I would like to fly his 2004 Cessna T182T. Of course I said yes.
Then I asked if I could borrow his owner's manual so I could compare it to mine and see if the numbers were different, and to see what had changed in 38 years.
He handed me an information manual that looked like a Cleveland phone book—it's 430 pages long! That's huge compared to the book for my airplane. What happened?
