  Description

You have an advantage when buying a later model 177B Cardinal, like this plane, because it has improvements made by Cessna over the years of production. What’s even better is that this airplane has performance updates like power flow exhaust and speed modifications so you can climb and fly faster while saving fuel. (Please watch the full video of this plane including flight and performance. I also have the most detailed Cardinal review in our YouTube channel with over 54,000 views so you can know everything about Cessna 177B Cardinal) This plane checks most requirements for an airplane purchase. All logs since new, No accident history, Clean airframe, No damages or hail. Nice modern paint and updated interior. Updated avionics. Engine with good compressions and clean oil analysis report. It even has the wing spar eddy current inspection done. Flown recently on a very long cross country from Texas to Indiana and flew very well. It is even hard for us to find a plane in this era that has all the above together. It was hangared and owned by a well experienced, professional pilot who took care of the plane well. We did a test flight at night and it was easy to land with those bright LED lights. Avionics It has an advanced Lynx 9000R+ transponder that’s ADS-B In and Out so you can fly in any airspace without restrictions. Easy touch screen. It displays the traffic and weather right on the screen. The iPad in the plane is also linked to it so it shows traffic and weather. This unit costs around $10,000 to install. Both radios have been upgraded to digital. Easy to use and you can keep backup frequencies ready to reduce the pilot workload. Garmin 660 is a touchscreen navigator that has so many important features; many features similar to the Garmin GTN 650 but it’s not a certified unit so you just can’t use it for IFR. Also has Apollo GPS. What I like the most is the JPI 830 digital engine analyzer. In older planes, the analog gauges are not very accurate. With a digital engine monitor like this you can get better life out of the engine, save fuel and see any anomalies to help troubleshoot like roughness on the mag check. Without it you can only guess. This unit not only shows all the important data more accurately, it also has information that the factory gauges don't show including fuel flow and fuel remaining. It is very important to lean the engine properly to save fuel and it’s better for the engine. On long flights the fuel remaining feature is a must have. Exterior Newer 3 tone paint scheme makes it look like a more modern plane. It’s a more neutral and elegant theme. The paint is overall in good condition. I would rate it at about 7. Very nice dual LED lights (see the video to see just how bright they are). Interior Nice comfortable interior. Very clean condition. Clean carpets and all interior panels. A clean interior in any plane tells me the previous owner took care of the plane. Engine and propeller Lycoming O-360-A1F6D 180 horsepower engine. The plane has Powerflow exhaust installed. We didn’t independently verify but they mention it adds about 20 horsepower. It can definitely climb faster and it seems to fly better. McCauley 2 blade constant speed propeller. We did an engine compression test with results of 74, 76, 77, 79. We also sent an oil sample for analysis to see any wear patterns inside of the engine and the report came back clean. Engine has 1629 hours. These O360 engines have a reputation as one of the best and can reach 3000-3500 hours before needing an overhaul when they’re maintained properly. This engine starts right up and runs well. Total time is 7002 hours which was never a concern for me because regularly flown airplanes are less susceptible to corrosion and other issues than those flown only occasionally. Also, the Cardinal has no airframe time limitation. (I fly a large twin airplane that has about 11,000 hours on it.) Even though the plane has current annual, we can arrange a fresh annual at buyer's request. Cardinals burn very little fuel. 7-9 gallons per hour in economy cruise settings which means about 17 mpg. With today's fuel prices you can save a lot by flying this plane. Cessna Cardinal is one of the best 4 place airplanes made. Reliable, roomy, low maintenance and very economical. Best of all it is light on the controls, easy and fun to fly. This is a nice Cardinal with many desirable features. With today's market it is hard to find a later model Cardinal in this price range with the features this plane has. Please don't forget to watch the video. 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

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

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

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 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.

- Randy 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.

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.

- Travis Wisniewski

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