Commander of Diablo Squadron 44
The following diary was written by Lt Col Brett Dolnick chronicling his adventures transporting a brand new C-182 G1000 from the Cessna Factory in Wichita Kansas to Concord CA. Lt Col Dolnick was accompanied by Capt Jeff Ironfield.
We arrived at Cessna headquarters and got our badges and notebooks and met the head of pilot training. Then we got to sit through a 4 hour ground school similar to the CAP ground school, going over a G1000 overview, standard setup, and full function of all VFR functions. This was about 3.5 hours.
