Fly Maui

Aug 7, 2020

Aloha! Since we fly two Cessna 172s here in Maui and manage the flights and maintenance work on both aircraft, we constantly have questions how to best maintain our aircraft. A few weeks ago, our friend, AP/IA/CFI and Airplane Owner Maintenance Podcast host Dean Showalter invited us on his podcast to ask him all the questions we had about the Cessna 172. Dean had some great answers and shared some valuable wisdom from his years of experience. We had to share it with our listeners as well!


Listen to Dean’s podcast on your preferred podcast app and check out his website for more links and photos of his work and interesting maintenance cases.


On this page you’ll also find Dean’s new FREE resource for owners and operators of Cessna 172s. It’s a list of commonly needed parts and their part numbers.
