    Actually, just press and release the 'R' key, which sets the + and - to apply to the Rate. Other keys set the + and - to other functions, such as tuning radios, setting OBS adjustment and more.

    As I said above: "The NAV and APP modes are modes, or methods of operations, not frequencies." The NAV radios have frequencies but the modes are part of the autopilot, NOT of the navigation radios. ...

    I guess that's one way to put it, Charlie, but those modes don't actually use any frequencies- the NAV radio receivers DO use frequencies, but the modes are part of the auto-pilot, not of the radios.

    While that may be a true statement (at least for SOME C-152s, not likely ALL), it doesn't address the likely differences in avionics between a fairly recent C-152 and a rather older C-150, or even...

    Your GP should be GS, Glide Slope (not path), and is the FP in the title supposed to be Flight Path? Those are certainly not aviation standard abbreviations, which makes it tough for folks to follow...

    I don't know current price, but back in the 1970s the alternator for a Cessna 172 was actually a Ford product. For a car it cost about $60 or so at that time. For the Cessna (exact same part) it was...
