    My wife and daughter were out flying on Mother's Day. So I grabbed the camera and audio recorder and caught some Skylane sounds and tires screeching. Should be in 4K if you are into that sort of thing.

    The coolest Skylane sound is the Ghost of Clyde Cessna "whistle/moan" when you fly in rain.

    My 182 makes the same noise. Can be distracting at first because it sounds like a pitch change, like you are picking up some speed. Cool howl!

    Nice video & airplane. In the mid-seventies when I was a young 135 charter pilot, I flew a 1972 182 that was N7413Q. It was the same paint scheme but black & red. Most likely, they were built side by side.

    Is that the kind of wailing sound you hear when you're slowing down? When I first started taking lessons I thought THAT was the stall horn. Kind of starts as a hoarse whisper and then becomes a moan. I always heard it around 60-65 kts.

    Yes! But not as pronounced. My first few actual instrument flights where in a 172 and it was similar to that sound, just much more subtle.. I found you could hear it in the more "dense" clouds that covered the plane in mist and moisture

    That's cool! When my instructor and I were practicing unusual attitude recoveries a few months ago he whipped the plane around a bit and I heard that sound right before he said "recover." I immediately jumped on the yoke and pushed the nose over and he was like "were you cheating??" I said no but I heard the airframe whistle and so I knew we were below 75 and probably climbing / slowing. I expected him to be a bit ticked but he seemed kind of impressed.

    Cool story. That's not cheating at all, it's taking in all the cues the plane is presenting you, even if IMC or disoriented, to assess the situation
