  Description

(Please watch the detailed video of the plane including flight to 10,000ft) When I saw this 172M I was very glad I found it. It’s rare to find a 172M in this nice condition. There’s so many upgrades. Low hour, Midwest plane with newer paint, luxury interior, updated Garmin avionics, ADS-B Out and JPI advanced engine monitor. These updates alone cost around $46,000. IFR certified plane with no damage history, all logs since new. We climbed straight to 10,000ft to see the performance. You’ll see how it flies in the video. Cessna 172M model, the most desired early 172 model. A more refined airplane with the E2D engine and camber lift wings. Midwest its entire life (ND & MN). They usually don't have corrosion or paint issues like you’ll find in some other areas. Hangared, well kept and well maintained. Mechanic who did the recent annuals & maintenance is very thorough and detail oriented. Current annual in March. IFR certified and current. Very low hours - Only 3731 hours total. Never registered to a flight school. Only private owners. Previous owner had it over 18 years. Beautiful condition, newer paint. A full strip and paint; the best way to do it. High quality Jet Glo paint lasts a very long time even in harsh conditions. I found just a few minor chips. Updated LED lights. Clean airframe. No hail or damages. See inside wing condition in the video. All glasses in clean condition but a small chip in the right lower windshield. Does not affect the view. It’s minor but as always we like to mention anything we notice. Updated premium interior and leather seats. It’s rare to see this high quality interior in a 172. Gives the plane a luxurious look and is very comfortable. Newer carpet. 3 point harness for all 4 seats. Extended baggage area. Rosen sun visors. Updated Garmin avionics; digital radios & transponder, Garmin moving map GPS -it’s an older model but has all information needed. We can update to a more advanced unit for a discounted price. JPI 830 engine analyzer included (upgrade of JPI 700). I fly a lot day and night; my most important upgrade is an advanced digital engine monitor. You can see all information for the engine, troubleshoot anomalies, save fuel and get a longer life out of your engine. ADS-B out installed - fly to any airport and in any airspace. Engine is Lycoming 0-320 E2D. One of the most desired engines and one of the best 4 cylinder engines ever made. Very good compression: 74 75 76 70 out of 80. All components and firewall are in very nice condition. Preheater installed helps extend the engine life. Avoid harmful cold starts. 1613 hours. Even flight schools run them over 3000 hours before overhaul. All logs since new. Wasn’t flown for a few years but looking at all the details and inspections we had no concern. It’s hard to find these planes in this condition. Especially with the amount of upgrades. I had multiple flights. The plane starts right up and flies very nicely.

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.

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

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 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.

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.

- Ray P.

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

- Bob & John
