Cabin width

Here's an email inquiry I received from Craig Lundborg. Anybody have the data handy? He inquired on August 1st, which should give you an idea how far behind I am in my life right now...

Hi,
I love your site...and am thinking about possible ownership....can you tell me what the inside cabin width is...I find every other dimension but that one. I am in need of at least the width of a 182.

Thank You,
Craig Lundborg


Kevin

Are pre 1973 Skymasters wider at the 5-6 seats row than newer ones, as is stated in Ricardo Guinandīs article shown in this site?

yes

All the widths are wider on the pre-73, non-turbo models. Ours is a 69, and while I don't know the figures, it is wider inside than Jerry DeSantis's 73 pressurizde model.

Ideal cabin size.

The cabin is a perfect size when you have a 20 yr junior copilot or instructor................... oh yes, of the opposite sex...

And Don can attest to the intimacy of the cockpit during his checkride... Eh Don?

We don't need to go into the details of my latest checkride, Bob. Suffice it to say that, according to the examiner, I met "the minimum requirements." As for being "intimate", my sweat was dripping all over him.

Now, my wife likes the intimacy of the cabin.

Hey Don,

Not to worry about the examiner... like most humanoids, they're very subjective to the 'way they'd a dunnit', and some are like Cats...they lick their paws too much <G>. Ah, but next time, go unpressurized and pull the T-bars... and you'll have more of a cool forehead! No sweat.
