    Default Need a down-loadable C-180J POH

    I have a paper copy, but I need a down-loadable POH for my modified C-180J. I do floatplane instruction and want to be able to send it out to folks before they come to Alaska. ( IF I can ever get a spot on the lake this year>)
    Plus I could edit a down-loadable to match up with my P-Ponk and Kenmore mods. I saw links in the past, but of course can't find one now..
    Thanks

    Downloadable J POH appears to be a unicorn. e-owners manuals available, but no sign of POH's, except in hardcopy.

    Alex,
    You can download it from your Skywagons club website. Wait?! You're not a member?!
    Lots of good technical resources there that have helped me in my 180J ownership. I feel it's worth the price of membership.

    If you're not a member, I can send you the document, but I do encourage you to join for the other tech stuff.

    Nah... it's there on the Skywagons website. Yeah, it requires membership, but has been worth it thus far for my two years of owning a 180J.

    I am a member. And I asked in the club forums. The copy I received was from a Fartbook question.

    Yep, that forum can be pretty "weak" for answers. Dig around in the tech section. You'll find the parts manual and maintenance manual for your plane as well as the POH. Good stuff!

    I just went over there to look. I cannot find the tech section. I looked in the forums and the Members resources.

    Member Resources, then Documents, then Technical Library.
    One click on the folder symbol or double click on the "Technical Library"

    OK That worked. That website is a wee bit odd.
