172M vs 172S

Asked by: 2974 views Flight Instructor

I am doing an interview to teach in a C172M but I am used to teaching out of a 172S. so I dont know Vspeeds, or power settings.  Is it about the same? Is there a resource available to read some procedures. I need to do lazy 8s and steep turns.

    I’ve flown both models of 172.  The speeds are similar but can’t remember them exactly.  Take a look on the type certificate data sheets for both airplanes to find the information you need.

    IMHO all the 172s fly the same minus the constant speed XP. Heck even the 207 flys very similarly to a 172.

    Do you have access to the plane? Can you go to the flight school and get some info on her? If I were hiring I would be looking for someone who took the initiative to familiarize themselves on the plane they planed to teach in.
