Anyone in Texas have a CTSW I could sit in?

Recommended Posts

I am in the beginning stages of trading with someone for a CTSW before I really commit and try to work out logistics I would like to see if my father-in-law (FIL) and I fit in one. I would be fine by myself and so would my FIL (I think) but he has broad shoulders and so do I. Also, want to see if the ingress and egress wouldn't be too hard. We live in Temple, Texas area and with our 182 we can be just about anywhere in Texas within 2.5 hours.

You didn't say how tall you are, but you will have more shoulder room than in the 182. The fellow in the picture below stand 6'5", and two of him will fit.size.jpg.1b6fa3b5f3d9e86477c561d59309cddc.jpg

I live in Frisco and have a CTLS which you are welcome to sit in...my mechanic has a CTSW in Justin Tx...I can email him to see if he would be up for it.

I think this picture is enough to convince me we'll fit. Thanks Tom for the info and thanks oberdav for giving me the opportunity.

I’m about 6’7” and around 225. While at this size nothing is going to be a perfect fit, the CT is very spacious and doable. I sat in a CTSW and I believe the CTLS may have even a tad more width in the cockpit.

I'm in Houston (KLVJ, Pearland) with a 2006 CTSW.  I'd happy to meet up with you guys at my hangar and you might even be able to talk me into taking you flying in it!
