    New Sundowner

    I have now joined the ranks of True Believer. After a long and exhausting
    search I finally took possession of a 1979 Sundowner. You guys were all so
    correct. This plane puts the Cessna 172 I was learning on to shame. The
    comfort and the way the plane handles is phenomenal. We have alot of wind
    around here and the Cessna would be blown around, the sundowner you would
    not know it was windy. The same with turns--with the Cessna had to fight to
    keep the nose up when making a turn with the sundowner no problem. It is a
    pity they stopped making these crafts. My instructor can't get over how
    well this plane is built.

    Thanks again for everyone's help and as soon as I get my license I will fly
    to some events.

    John
    Congratulations on the best purchase you will ever make.
    The Sundowner runs circles around those Cezzno's, I to flew nothing but
    172's and 152's right until the day I flew my downer and I would never go
    back. OK maybe to a 206 or something in that category, but never to a 172.
    Good luck with your license and I hope to see you real soon at one of our
    events.
