Thinking about this today, back in 1969 or 1970, when I took that ride, the Champ was mentioned as an "old" airplane. It would have been about 25 years old. My RV is >20 now, and I don't consider it old at all.A distant cousin took me up in his Aeronca Champ when I was about 4. Then his dad gave me (us) a ride in his C-172.
My main memory is how loud the Champ was.
How times change.
