Rare in a plane like this since it usually costs over $20,000. Gets attention, clean glass and airframe, no corrosion, no hail, no damages. High quality interior. Very comfortable leather seats. New carpet. 4 point retractable seat belts in front for comfort and extra safety. 3 point rear seatbelts. Wood grain trim update like 1978 Classic model Garmin GTN 650 touch screen; most popular GPS-Nav-Com today. Easy to use, lower pilot workload, GPS navigation, weather, traffic, all IFR features and communication. STec 30 autopilot flies heading, GPS, VOR LOC track, holds altitude and optional GPSS roll steering installed for smooth turns as seen in the video when it flies the approach. Convenient for long flights, safety tool for instrument flights a life saver in VMC to IMC situations. Audio panel has many features including ATC playback and phone connect for calls. Digital engine monitor is one of the best things to have. Monitor all CHTs, EGTs, oil temp, voltage ect. Save fuel, increase engine life and a good troubleshooting tool. Digital meter for fuel flow, fuel remaining ect. Save fuel and monitor levels on longer flights. Garmin ADS-B Out to fly over 10,000ft and any airport in USA without restriction. ADS-B In to view free in-flight weather, traffic and other important info. These avionics and panel upgrades in the plane cost about $47,000 Lycoming 0-360 180HP low hour engine. Only 820 since major overhaul. Very reliable, low maintenance. Very good compressions 74-76-75-72. Most people fly less than 50 hours a year so ECI cylinder compression can be checked at annual. If you like we can upgrade to new Millennium cylinders for $4700. Pre-heater to prevent damaging cold starts. Updated McCauley prop has only 130 hours since overhaul, maintain 75% power up to 10,000ft to fly faster. STOL kit. (Short Field Takeoff and Landing). Operate on shorter runways, grass strips or backcountry. STOL kit reduces stall speed. (see the video to see just how slow it can fly) Old accident history professionally repaired. Over 31 years and almost 1500 hours ago so no factor but we always mention anything we notice. Even though the spar inspection isn’t required it’s been done. Powerflow exhaust adds power. According to their site: 5-7 knots speed increase, increased climb rate and increased service ceiling by 2000-5000ft. Many other upgrades: LED lights, vertical card compass etc. Really nice flying airplane. Very nice performance. Landed nicely with 25 knot gusting crosswind. It’s hard to find a good 177B and nearly impossible to find a low hour, late model Cardinal with these upgrades in today's market. (Please make sure to watch the full video of the plane) 5 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 find financing & insurance

The video play icon   I want to trade my aircraft with this 1975 CESSNA 177B

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 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.

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.

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

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

- Michael 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.

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.

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

- Bob & John

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.
