N9640B (Bert Hanson)


N9640B is a 1957 Cessna 180A with a Continental O-470K engine and a factory float kit. It has approximately 3300 hours total time on the airframe, of which all but about 250 hours are Alaska time. I recently installed the Attlee Dodge rear jump seats and ski fittings and am in the process of installing the Schneider 4000-19 wheel skis and tail ski. I am continuing to update this aircraft and engine with the install of new cylinders, new magnetos, overhauled starter drive unit, new oil filter installation, a Garmin external GPS antenna to fit the Garmin 296. A Sportsman STOL kit and new updated instrument panel and instruments are slated for install this summer. This aircraft is well suited for flying in Alaska and is a wonderful workhorse for flying the Iditarod.
