  Description

Please watch the full video of the plane. It has so much more detail on the plane including a flight. When you look at this Cessna 172M it looks like an almost new plane. You have a rare opportunity to own this plane for a fraction of the cost of a newer plane with a similar appearance. The plane flies very well. It’s something you can be proud to own and take family and friends in. This plane also has the 6 most important things a plane should: 1. It's a Midwest plane so no coastal corrosion 2. All logs since new 3. No damage history 4. Clear history. Not flight school history 5. Owned and flown by experienced pilots 6. Flies very nice and looks fantastic 2 years ago we bought this plane. Fully renovated it. Flew it over 75 hours. (The video has all the details of what we did in the process and a flight too.) Before we bought the plane it hadn't flown for a number of years. Owner did run the engine on the ground to keep it in good shape. Engine has excellent compression 79 76 78 78. Oil analysis was fine. This engine, Lycoming E2D is one of the main reasons the 172M model is the most desired 172 model. These engines, when maintained properly, run 3000-3500 hours before needing an overhaul. It has a Tanis electric pre-heater installed so you can avoid cold starts which damage the engine. During the refurbishment we replaced older parts with many new components. Most of them were not necessary but we tend to overdo it when it comes to maintenance. Complete strip and paint was done with high quality materials. New carpet. New windshield and rear glass. New leather upholstery. Cessna 172M are about 45 years old. Good thing about refurbished planes like this is that they have many new parts which make it a better plane. This 172M has camber lift wings for better slow flight handling. Long range fuel tanks. 49 gallons so you can fly long distances. Plane burns only 6-7 gallon per hour. Very economical. The plane is ADS-B out compliant so you can fly in any airspace and to any airport without restriction. Detailed, fresh annual was just completed. All gauges are very clean. Garmin audio panel and 4 place intercom. Dual digital NAV/COMM radios are very helpful. They are easy to dial. Easy to read. Predial the frequencies in standby to reduce the workload. Dual VOR and CDI indicators are a necessity for IFR flight or training. Panel mounted iPad is a very nice feature. You have navigation, in-flight weather and live traffic. With Foreflight it is like a mini glass cockpit. Synthetic vision is very useful for flying in the right seat. It’s a safety backup in case of an instrument failure. Also a learning tool on how to fly a glass panel. I flew about 75 hours in this plane. I really like it. Starts every time and runs very well. This plane got attention wherever I travelled. I had some flights on very cold days. Cabin heater works very well. As you can see in the video the plane can fly hands free. It is a very nice 172M for a very reasonable price in today's market. (Please watch the video. It has very important information about Cessna 172) Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We are glad to help. 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 1974 CESSNA 172M

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.

- Michael S.

Aerolife Aviation was great to deal with. Megan handled the buying process well from providing the paperwork, to getting the plane delivered to a mechanic for inspection, and arranging the plane to be delivered to Alabama. I think the plane looks great and I am very happy with the purchase.

- Randy S.

I have been watching Megan do YouTube videos on aircraft for sale. She does such thorough reviews on the planes the previous owner could usually learn something about their old plane. You can imagine my pleasure when I saw a video about a 182 that I was actively interested in buying. When I got to see the plane in person it was exactly as described. Then AeroLife Aviation helped me with the training I needed and arranged for some routine maintenance I requested. Everything was above and beyond my high expectations. Thank you Megan and AeroLife Aviation

- Raymond B.

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

Aerolife Aviation made the purchase of our 182 P an easy and stress free transaction. Megan was extremely helpful in answering all of the MANY questions we had before, during and after the purchase process. Aerolife was very professional and honest regarding the aircraft. Megan was easy to work with. She handled all the purchase details and even arranged delivery of our airplane. We highly recommend Aerolife.

- Lynn and Glen

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.

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.

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

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.
