Aircraft Review | Carenado C172S G1000

Our dedicated GA pilot Bruce Knight did some extensive tests for you with the Carenado Cessna 172S with G1000. Oh oh, that has been wild rides, but the outcome is a comprehensive review. Bruce thinks that “For those wanting a more complex flight route the G1000 offers more sophistication than the avionics in some airliners flying the skies today, especially non-glass and semi/early glass flight decks).” But there’s so much more to read about this Carenado GA model. Curious what Bruce has to say more? You can read the whole story via his in-depth review. Enjoy!
