While on a trip to Argentina I went flying. Obviously without a license, an instructor had to come along. It really is only an introduction flight that can be done. It was fun to fly in another country and flying a different plane. Many US students learn to fly on a Cessna 152. For me it was the first time flying a Cessna 152. I was pleasantly surprised on several aspects. The Cessna handles really similar to the 172. It reacts quick, with lighter touch and only a little reduced climb and cruise speeds. What I found really surprising was the cross wind component in cruise flight. You can really feel how the wind is pushing you sidewards and how much you have to crab. All this together I can understand why the 152 is such a popular trainer.
