Well, you either get a nice interior or some sort of decent useful load.

When I test flew it with the Cessna guy, I think we had a whopping six gallons of fuel on board and were still pushing max gross.

Cessna missed the boat with how late the 162 came out versus all of the other LSA's. Couple that with the wrong engine choice and they really crippled their airplane.

C162 are not approved for Private pilot, which is disappointing. I trained a couple students in the C162 and they are no longer allowed to do checkrides in a C162 without a compass. This came straight from the FAA and the PTS AFS 340 and 341 I believe that was the publication.

So your saying with all the money and brains out there no one has an STC compass for the 162?? If not thats just plain stupid to make an aircraft useless because of something so simple to add!!

Can't STC it. Its an S-LSA, not a Part 23 aircraft. Have to get manufacture approval for the modification.

In a way, its better. Have an S-LSA, need to replace a part, can't find it. Call the manufacture, tell them what you can get, and they can (and do, in some cases) approve it right there.

At the same time, in this case, Cessna says, no, you'll need to buy a 172 to do private training, making the system bad.
