  Description

Please watch the full video of the plane for all the details and to see how it flies at over 10,000ft The airplane market keeps rising and it's hard to find good planes. We found this nice Midwest plane recently. The owner kept it hangared on and flew out of his grass strip. Annual was just completed. Even though the plane has higher hours, the condition of the plane, how it has been maintained and how it flies indicates it’s a solid plane. We’ve had multiple flights in the plane and in the test flight for the video we even flew the plane to over 10,000ft. It’s a nice flying airplane. Also this plane has many upgrades including digital avionics that you usually don't see in most 172M’s. No damage history. This is a 172M model. This model is the most in demand for many reasons. It has better slow flight characteristics. But the main reason for the popularity of this plane is its engine. Lycoming 0-320-E2D engine is regarded as a long lasting, low maintenance engine. This engine has 2190 hours. Even though TBO is 2000 hours, these engines can run much longer. Even flight schools run them for around 3000-3500 hours. (The plane I fly at night and cross country has about 3000 hours on the engine). Good compressions at 70-76-78-70. Good oil pressure. Very little oil use. After 10 hours of flights, oil is still golden. No leaks. Starts easy and runs very well. All good sigs of solid engine (watch the video to see). Updated digital avionics with dual digital radios. Easy to use and less workload on the pilot. ADS-B out so you can fly in any US airspace and airport without restrictions. Plane has additional gauges like carb temp and VOR-CDI. The plane has all the signs of being well kept and well maintained. All the glass is clean. All gauges are also very clean and easy to read. Nice clean interior. This 172M has special features like both door windows can open. Both seats are dual articulating. 3 point seatbelt harness and dual push to talk buttons. The rest of the interior is in good condition as well. There are a few plastic pieces that have some small pieces missing which I show in the video. Exterior is in good shape. For most of the plane, the paint is nice. There are some small paint chips in the usual areas. The plane didn't come with wheel pants since it’s been flown off a grass strip, but If you like we can install a full set for about $700. Plane has all the airframe logs and the engine logs since overhaul. An older engine log from before the overhaul is missing but since it’s before the overhaul it isn’t significant. A nice flying, clean, Midwest plane for a very reasonable price in today's market. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions 6 things we do: 1.

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

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

- Michael 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.

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

- Bob & John

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.

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.

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.
