Bear in mind that the Cessna 150 is proven to be the best aircraft ever made
Good point - a most forgiving aeroplane for the early. early Students and although not built like Superman - she WILL let you know if she is not happy. I came back to base over the North Sea (well, The Wash anyway - I like to kid myself it was the sea) with a strange fine vibrating sensation in the ruddder pedals - I knew something was amiss in the engine which was delivering required power at that setting and all the Ts and Ps were in the Green.
When I got back - I told engineering who whipped it into the hangar. Apparently, when the took the engine apart one of the pots just came apart in little pieces. Good old Cessna - got me home again.
Unless you do something REAL stupid at low level she will just fly her way out of it, so long as you have got height of course. Height above you is no good. runway behind you is no good. fuel in the bowser is no good - (unless you are on fire) which in itself is another rarity. Yup, like a good old friend - then there is the 152 - sleek and slim and goes like the clappers. The 152A to scare yourself fartless. The 172 to load up and cruise - invariable happy at FL 50. . .? Try it.
