Scott Sellers has been a Cessna single-engine owner since 1995 (Cardinal, 182P, 182RG) and a pilot since 1975, all thanks to his wife Cindy, who tolerates, supports, and still enjoys flying after all these years. Besides this podcast, he is authoring a series in Cessna Owner magazine that involves Sellers updating and upgrading his new-to-him 1978 Cessna 182RG.
