Notes: It probably takes nosedragger pilots a while to figure out how you see where you're going in a '195. And N145V isn't even in a three-point attitude! It's a lot like the 450-Stearman sprayers I flew "way back when".

Notes: The Beaver is six years younger then N145V. They are two very different aircraft. The '195 was called the "Businessliner" and was designed for comfortable and reasonably fast cross-country travel. The Beaver was designed more as a STOL aircraft to carry big loads into and out of shorter runways and lakes. However, Currier says that, given enough lake, the '195 will handle a good-sized load. One must remember too, that the Beaver has 450-HP to the 195's, 275 or 300-HP.
