  Description

Very nice, low hour Cessna Cardinal with many upgrades including a fully upgraded Garmin avionics package and autopilot. New leather interior and powerflow exhaust. These upgrades alone cost around $43,000 With 180hp engine upgrade and a powerflow exhaust system this plane produces more power and can outperform later model Cessna 177B. This Cardinal can climb over 1100 feet a minute and cruise around 130 knots. (Please watch the full video for all details, performance, flight and landing. You will see.) Since Cessna Cardinal has the largest cabin space in its class, similar to Cessna 210, long flights are comfortable. Some say Cardinal is a hard plane to land. That is absolutely not true. In the video, you will see how beautiful it can land even with 20 knots gusting wind. You won’t even notice the touchdown. (Please watch the video) This is a rare plane because it has 6 things most owners would love to have in a plane. 1. Low airframe hours, only 3580. 2. Very low engine hours, only 660. One of the best Lycoming engines. If maintained they can run over 3000 hours. So technically you never have to put money into overhauling this engine. 3. Great avionics package: Garmin 430 WAAS for navigation, instrument training or approaches. JPI EDM 830 digital engine monitor. It’s not only peace of mind; you can save fuel, increase engine hours, troubleshoot anomalies. Garmin ADS-B out solution to fly any airspace in USA. Digital fuel flow to precisely manage your fuel levels and burn. Digital radios and Garmin audio panel with four place intercom. Dual CDI glide slope indicators. A must have for instrument training or flights. Single axis autopilot. Very useful for many reasons. Single pilot ops- take your hands off the controls to attend to other important tasks. Long trips- a nice tool for relaxation. A lifesaver if you happen to go from VMC to IMC conditions. 4. Very nice exterior with shiny three tone paint. I noticed a few minor paint chips. Windshield and glasses are in good condition. Cardinal is the best photo platform. This plane has a photo window upgrade. No dents, damages or corrosion. Clean airframe. 5. Interior is in great condition. Very nice newer leather seats, panels and trim in great condition. Carpet is in good condition with one spot worn-out in the back. We can order a brand new carpet for $450. 6. Hangered, well taken care of and flown by a professional pilot. All logs since new. No damage history. It is rare you'll find all the above together in a plane. As for the price. Well we just sold a Cessna 172 - 180 conversion without the advanced avionics for $105,000. This is a better plane with better avionics and equipment for much less. (Please make sure to watch the full video for all details, performance, flight and landing.) 6 things we do: 1. Transport anywhere in USA for low cost 2. Arrange prebuy with local mechanic or accommodate yours 3. Arrange to look at it on weekends also - if you schedule ahead 4. Give free 5 hour type training with CFI if you need 5. Help you to find financing & insurance 6. Clean and sanitize before delivery

The video play icon   I want to trade my aircraft with this 1967 CESSNA 177/180 CONVERSION

This is the third aircraft I have purchased in my lifetime so I can say from experience this was my best buying experience by far. I have complete confidence in Aerolifes business model of how Aerolife will acquire an aircraft then thoroughly and professionally inspect the airplane then fix or replace what ever needs done if any to prepare that aircraft to sell. No smoke and mirrors, they are very upfront and forward in regards to any imperfections with your new plane. I recently purchased a beautiful Cessna 182Q and couldn’t be happier with my plane and how Megan and her team helped guide me though the transfer of my last plane and purchase of my new 182Q. I really enjoyed getting to meet Megan and all the super friendly folks up in Fergus Falls MN when I went up to fly my new plane for the first time. Overall excellent experience.

- Ray P.

As first-time aircraft buyers, we felt in excellent hands with Megan at Aerolife. From the first moment of contact with her to the time we picked up our 1973 Cessna 177 Cardinal in Minnesota, Megan made the experience smooth, straight-forward and transparent. Megan went out of her way to explain specific technical questions we had, helped with recommendations on inspection items, arranged CFIs to get checked out and was available throughout the process to reassure and guide us through the logistics of the purchase process. We would definitely purchase from Aerolife Aviation in the future and wholeheartedly recommend the company, and especially Megan as an honest, fair and trustworthy airplane broker with top-notch customer service.

- Birgit, Henry and Kurt

I really enjoyed dealing with Megan @ AeroLife Aviation during the purchase of this Cessna 182P. They delivered a plane that met every expectation as advertised. They held nothing back by providing all log's, AD's, & 337's for our review. Then upon inspection absolutely nothing was found not previously disclosed. I have purchased a really nice airplane thanks to Megan and her team.

- Tom A.

Aerolife is a great company to work with. They are very accommodating and provide great service that makes the buying experience both smooth and pleasurable.

- Mitch

I will never be able to express my total gratitude and appreciation to Megan for her extremely professional, capable, friendly, honest, cleaver, resourceful, and experienced expertise! She not only helped me navigate the risky and sometimes stressful path to aircraft ownership, but spent numerous hours educating and helping me make the right decision in upgrades and other significant factors in the aircraft purchase. I am very impressed and totally trust Megan and Aerolife Aviation to satisfy all my future trade in and aircraft purchases. In fact, I will only deal with Aerolife Aviation and Megan from now on! A thousand thank you’s Megan! You made this happen!

- Patrick S.

Megan was very thorough and professional. We thought the process went very smooth. Enjoyed working through the process. Many Thanks

- Bob & John

AeroLife Aviation were very forthright and most accommodating to me in the purchase process. The entire process was smooth and efficient.
