In March 2005 my wife Marta and I rented a non-turbocharged Cessna 172 from Anglo-American Aviation in San Diego, California and flew to Florida and back. The first part of the trip (West to East) we planed to fly along the southern border of the US, while the return part (East to West) we planed to fly more northerly route.
