Thanks for all of the feedback -- It sounds like this isn't a complete deal-breaker for me as I had assumed it would be. I'm still a bit concerned by it, but I guess only time will tell. wlfpckrs - it is indeed your plane I've been trying to get up with Mark but between weather (windy today!) and my work (80% travel for a living) timing just doesn't seem to work out -- if only NCSU would have a home game it might be here on the weekend Im planning to finish up my sport license down at ktta with the allegro -- any idea on how hard my transition will be to the ctsw? I'm still trying to find one that i can do an insurance check-ride in -- the one i had located was dropped by the insurance company for flight training purposes.
Hi, I'm looking at possibly owning a CTSW and the ones i've found do not appear to have autopilot -- i've wondered what the masses can tell me about piloting one of these on a 3-4 hour cross country w/o an AP. If it is a big deal, how hard is it to add one to a ctsw with a d100/d120 flight deck? Thanks!
