Hi guys..

Where can i get, or who can please send me the list, or regulations that will list the minimum equipment required on a Cessna.

Any any tips that go beyond the the minimum or sugested back-ups.

Thanx

Hi read up on part 91.04.5 (associated equipment for aircraft under IFR) and 91.04.6 (Additional equipment for operation of single pilot IFR or night)

Perhaps contact Chalkie on Avcom for additional nice to have...
Straighten up and fly right!

apollo11 hi
Thank you for reference.
So with ADF being mostly non functional, is this still imperative installation?

Hi Billies,
I have to agree...archaic legislation that is a huge waste of money. Time the CAA arrived in the 21st century!

Where does it say ADF required.

It merely states "navigation appropriate to the route being flown".
