All the luxuries of a C172, with an upgrade to a G1000 cockpit makes this airplane a great cross country airplane.
Great 172! The XM weather and radio subscription was active, which made the cross country more interesting for passengers and I had access to a host of data. Clean plane and the line crew even plugged in the engine block heater for me as I was taking it after hours! Highly recommend!
Airplane flies nice. Wings were a little "bug" covered. Had to wash the windscreen before departure.
Great g1000 airplane. Great folks to work with.
Great G1000 172 and the folks at Tom Wood Aviation are wonderful.
