After my ground school lesson I was determined to learn as much as I can. I was already determined for that but this was just a little extra bump. My instructor was going to be out of town for a week so I had some extra time too. I went to check out at the school and wanted to grab the Cessna 152 POH as well. They were out, it was such a bummer. The guy behind the desk told me just to check for a used one on Amazon or eBay to get it that way instead of them ordering a new one.
I got home and learned that a new POH cost about $60, not such a bummer they didn’t have any now! Now the trick was to find the correct one since there are so many different years out there and I’m not that familiar with which one to get.
On the flight school’s website I found the tail number, typed it into Google and found which year it was made. I began looking on eBay for a POH for that year. I found it right away and for only $8! Score! And it was “Buy It Now” so I ordered it right away and it came 3 days before my next lesson.
I was so excited about it I finished it before I got to my lesson on Monday. I also knew there was a lot to memorize in it. I actually found these flashcards online: Cessna 152 POH Flashcards I was a bit wary so double checked them against the POH I received and good thing I did because somethings were different. I also had my live in CFI go through them and pull out the ones I needed to learn since he said there was a lot of extra information in there. But now I’m set and ready to learn!
Shortly, I will type up the correct information on those cards and put them on this site to help other new students.
