N5291E - Cessna C172

N5291E is new to the Plus One fleet at Gillespie Field. 91E is a 1979 Cessna 172N with 180hp (O-360 A4M) conversion for strong performance and load-carrying capability.

91E is a great flying aircraft with a nice interior and excellent panel. It has been used for FAR 141 training at the San Diego Christian College aviation degree program and is now available to Plus One Flyers members.

The instrument panel is set up for serious instrument training and cross-country flying.

Primary NAVCOM is Garmin 430W (WAAS) certified for IFR VOR/ILS & GPS LPV approaches.

Nav 1 indicator is a Century slaved HSI with precession auto-correction in the slaved mode. There is a CDI for Nav 2 and an indicator for ADF. But the HSI simplifies navigation and trains new instrument pilots in more sophisticated instrument navigation.

The Shadin mini-flow fuel management system shows fuel quantity, fuel flow, fuel remaining - and ports this data to the Garmin 430W to show fuel at each waypoint and destination. It is important to follow instructions on fuel quantity inputs for accurate information.

The Alpha Systems Angle of Attack indicator will help you stabilize approach speeds on final approach to be at 1.3 Vso with full flaps - just like Navy carrier pilots! (Meat-ball, line-up, angle of attack!) It is located in the pilots field of view so you can include angle of attack in your scan during approaches. It is a safety device to help pilots fly efficiently and safely in slow flight and in the landing pattern.

The instructions for this added equipment are available in quick pilot guides and full text in the binder for your convenience. 

You will enjoy flying 91E! The engine is a recent factory overhaul and performance is excellent.
