  Description

Rare opportunity to own an Oshkosh winner for outstanding Cessna 182 - this tells a lot about the plane. Upgrades and condition of the plane make it a better plane than most newer models. It is also one of the best kept planes I've seen. (Please watch the full video including flight of this plane) This 182 has most everything an owner would like to have. Midwest hangered plane with excellent paint and top of the line interior. Fully upgraded Garmin avionics and autopilot. ADS-B out, IFR, in annual, all logs since new and no accidents. Cessna 182 hasn't changed much since the 60s. So there’s no real difference between a fully upgraded plane like this 182 and a much newer model, including performance. This 182J can cruise at 141knots with a ceiling of almost 19,000ft. You can carry 4 adults and baggage. Fly over 1000 miles non stop in economy settings. Fly off very short runways or grass strips and land anywhere. New 182 performance is very similar to this. Very nice, upgraded avionics package. Garmin 430 WAAS for navigation and IFR flight, 2 Garmin CDI’s with glideslope, digital radios and newer digital transponder. Advanced S-Tec 2 axis autopilot can hold altitude, fly heading or GPS track and approaches. A good autopilot is very helpful for any flight, especially IFR or long flights. ADS-B out so you can fly in any airspace and use any airport without restrictions. I noticed the original engine temp gauge is not reading correctly but the digital engine monitor has all the engine temps and helps to manage the engine. Stormscope helps avoid bad weather. These upgrades cost around $45,000 and make this plane very capable, easy and safe to fly. Exterior is in great shape with newer beautiful paint that looks like a newer model. There are a number of speed modifications to the plane to make it even faster. Earlier 182s have bladder tanks that tend to leak. This plane has expensive fiberglass tanks installed. Paint and tank upgrade would cost over $24,000. Interior is fully upgraded and the attention to details is impressive. Leather seats, panels and carpets. It has interior features you can't find in newer models. This quality interior costs around $12,000. Engine is Continental 0-470 230hp. Starts right up and flies great. We had a climb of over 1200 ft/min in the video. With 40 electric flaps. 2 cylinders recently replaced. (Although some people focus on cylinders and compressions, they are fairly easy to replace when needed, new ones cost only $1400.) Engine heater and full cowl cover to avoid cold starts. JPI EDM-830 advanced digital engine monitor to see all cylinder temperatures, EGT’s, oil temps, volts and more. Not only can you manage the engine in flight, it can help extend the life of the engine, save fuel and help troubleshoot any anomalies as well. This is a very nice plane. Upgrades alone costs about $80,000. I had a few flights in the plane, it's very comfortable. It’s not often an award winning plane comes to the market; this is a rare opportunity. Please make sure to watch the video, it’s not only about this plane, it has all the info about Cessna 182s. Feel free to contact us with any questions. 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.

The video play icon   I want to trade my aircraft with this 1966 CESSNA 182J

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 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.

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 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 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.

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