Great story Arash!

Sounds like it would be a great topic of its own, "What is the story of how you got your 170?" or something like that.

Hey George or Bruce, what do you think of starting a new thread like that and moving Arash's story as the first post?

In the very early days I flew a piper cub with a massive 65hp engine , it took off at 65 kts ,landed at 65kts ,stalled at 45 kts ,
And was fitted with HEEL brakes and fuel tank in front of the pilot with a fuel quality stick that used to leak fuel all over the windscreen . With 2 big persons in the aircraft [100 kgs each ] and full fuel it climbed with the curvature of the earth. It’s the only tail dragger that I have ground looped and that wasn’t done successfully. I hated that aircraft . It was worse that having a mother in law looking after your bank balance .
The next aircraft I ever flew was a Cessna 180 . OMG what a rocket ship , it had a heater , the windows didn’t leak water or fuel/oil/exhaust . The seats were so comfortable. So much room. And all those instruments too. Wow, it’s the cats whiskers Then came the Pilatas Porter, that was a BIG step. turbine grunt .
I was in heaven.
After 30 years and flying all sorts of aircraft [rotary and fixed wing]along came the 170A . It’s light , nimble was,a little under powered [fixed with 180 hp engine ] takes 4 has a “reasonable range “ more would be good but lands any where , and a lot of fun .
NOW in the Australian aviation trader [vol 31 ,issue 3 , page 36.]. paper some one wants to sell a Cessna 170b for $120, 000 . Totally polished and standard. OMG is what the market has stepped up to ? I do not know the aircraft at all so NO endorsement from me /
