Are you an airplane owner? Have you ever thought that it may be time for an avionics upgrade? Maybe you have even considered overhauling your entire instrument panel.

Maybe you’re thinking of buying your first plane, and you’re looking at options to modernize it’s old instrument panel to a modern instrument panel without the cost of a factory, new airplane.

SCFC has invited local Bay Area pilot and flight instructor, James Sloan, to describe the path he took a few years ago to transform his Cessna 182 from a “six pack” to a glass panel. The process took a significant amount of research and coordination between the offerings of various avionics manufacturers. The result is a beautiful, clean, modern interior and fantastic system management features.

The presentation is an inner look at a complicated process and is of interest even if you don’t own a plane.


James Sloan earned his PPL in 2002 and flew around the East Coast for a few years.  After several years off he joined SCFC in 2017 and has since obtained his instrument, commercial, advanced and instrument ground instructor, and flight instructor ratings. I currently have about 550 hours in single engine airplanes and own 1.6 Cessnas.
