  Description

Would you like to own an airplane that looks like new, for a fraction of the cost? This stunning 172M Skyhawk has a low hour engine, nice upgrades and capabilities that most other 172M’s don't have. (Please watch the full video of the plane that includes it flying to the stall speeds and a grass landing) This plane was owned by a professional pilot for a long time. Low hour engine, only 740 hours, all logs since new, no damage history, long range tanks, and very nice upgrades including the STOL kit make it even more capable. For most pilots owning an airplane is something to be proud of, so how the airplane looks matters. Who doesn't like to own a beautiful airplane? This plane has brand new paint and looks amazing. I had another plane with the same theme and so many people commented on how nice it looked. This was completely stripped and painted to last with high quality paint and primer. It also has a rare 4 tone paint scheme. It almost looks like a modern plane. The avionics panel is fully upgraded to include a modern panel overlay. Dual digital radios to reduce pilot workload and help you by having backup frequencies set for busy times. Dual CDI’s with glideslope for instrument flights. Garmin 660 touchscreen GPS with all the information you need including: terrain, obstacles and free weather and traffic. (We will also include an ADS-B In receiver with the purchase) It has a 4 place intercom and ADS-B out installed so you can fly in any airspace and use any airport without restrictions. The interior is in nice condition with comfortable new leather seats. Both front seats are dual articulating so you can adjust them to your preference. The rear seat can tilt if you need to lay down for comfort. The carpets and side panels are in decent shape with no rips. There are minor defects in the side panels as shown in the video. (If you would like to update them we can help, they cost only a few hundred dollars.) The baggage compartment contains a long section that extends to the rear. This is not very common but is very useful to carry long items, like golf gear. All glasses are in decent condition. There are a few sections with marks in the side windows. Small plastic side piece is missing in the baggage. These are very inexpensive to replace and very minor but we would like to describe the plane accurately. This airplane model is quite desirable because of its engine, the Lycoming 0-320 E2D, which is one of the most reliable, economical, and long lasting engines made. Even flight schools fly these engines for over 3000 hours. This engine has only 740 hours and if maintained properly you may never need to overhaul the engine. It has very good compressions of 76, 76, 74, 74. We also did the oil analysis to check the internal wear condition and the report came back clean. The engine has a block heater which can increase engine life, and avoid harmful cold starts. It starts right up and flies very well. These engines are so economical they burn only 6 gallons per hour in the economy setting meaning you can save money from low fuel burn alone. This Skyhawk II has long range tanks of 48 gallons and can fly 7.5 hours or 875 miles non stop. Plus this Skyhawk has a STOL kit installed and 40 degrees of flaps. That makes it more capable than a standard 172M, so it can take off and land in very short runways, grass strips, or even backcountry. Ultimately, the 172 is the best selling airplane in the world because of low insurance and maintenance cost. Owning a plane like this will accommodate most owners' needs. Be proud of owning a stunning looking airplane you can take family and friends in, with a low hour, economically reliable engine, and the ability to fly farther and take off and land in places others can't. Plus it was owned by a professional pilot with no damage history, decent avionics, and you can fly safely with ADS-B in-flight traffic and weather. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Plane is located in Knox, Indiana (KOXI) 5 things we do: 1. Arrange a prebuy with a local mechanic or accommodate yours 2. Transport anywhere in USA for low cost 3. Arrange to look at it on weekends also - if you schedule ahead 4. Provide free 5-hour training with CFI if you need 5. Help you find financing & insurance

The video play icon   I want to trade my aircraft with this 1975 CESSNA 172M

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

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

- Bob & John

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.

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.

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

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 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.

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 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.

Very easy to work with Aerolife and very accommodating, and knowledgeable. In a fast pace aggressive market for these planes they simplify buying process using DocuSign and knowing plenty of folks in industry to assist in the process if required.
