    On a certified late 90s (1995-2000), is the EGT/CHT gauge required equipment for day VFR flight? Must it be operating/serviceable?

    I have a 1998 Cessna 182S.

    No, not required for VFR flight. Look up 91.205 in the FAR.

    You need CHT if you have cowl flaps...

    And then look in all of the other places that 91.205 doesn’t address, starting with 91.213.

    Incorrect. Got to look at 23.1305

    That’s why Tomato Flames will burn you….

    FYI: there are equipment requirements for operating an aircraft per Part 91 and then there are equipment requirements that fall under how the aircraft was certified (CAR 3/Part 23) that need to be addressed depending on how the OEM performed that certification. Given you have a restart Cessna, any certification required part should be marked in the OEM equipment list and must be dealt with per 91.213 and not 91.205.

    Correct me if I am wrong (….again…:oops:). All the equipment in part 91.205 as well as that listed as required in the original equipment list must be present and operable?

    This is correct. You won't find this in 91.205, but it will be required by the type certificate if that is the case.

    Depends on the nature of the "equipment list" is for your particular aircraft. My "equipment list" is nothing more than the "installed stuff" in my aircraft. It's mostly a W&B exercise. While the stuff in the list has to be there or operational, the rules for flying with something inoperative is as described in the regs.

    In general yes. However even the equipment or item that is not listed in 205 or marked as required on the OEM KOL listing and is installed has to be operable or dealt with per 91.213 or an approved MEL/NEF program in order to be legal.
