  Description

One of the nicest Cessna 177B Cardinals I've seen. Last week I flew this plane over 1100 miles over mountainous terrain, around stormy weather and through turbulence - all in a single day. It flew and handled beautifully. Cardinal is a hard plane to find because owners love them and tend to keep them. They are roomy yet economical with only 8-10 gal/hr fuel burn. 125 knot speed is decent for a fixed gear. Low insurance, low annuals and maintenance cost. This plane was hangered in dry country. Previously owned by an airline pilot. Well organized logs since new. No major damage history. Previous owners took care of it very well. You can take your family and friends in a great looking airplane. Super nice exterior, shiny newer paint. Paint usually cost $13000-$18000. The interior is also in very nice condition. The exterior and interior condition can tell a lot about how the plane was kept and maintained in the past. Well kept airplanes are usually well maintained as well. Current annual and IFR certified. Entire panel is upgraded. Modern PMA audio panel with 4 place intercom for everyone in the plane. Plane has a moving map GPS. This is an older model but was helpful for our long flight back. Dual digital nav com’s connected to 2 CDI/VOR indicators for IFR flights. Latest Garmin GTX 335 transponder for ADS-B out. This upgrade costs about $5200. It had a Century autopilot but they replaced the turn coordinator which controls the autopilot. Control switches are still there. I don't think they removed the servos. So you may be able to get it working. But at this point it doesn't work and we didn't check into it. Upgraded digital tachometer gives you precise readings. The plane also has digital EGT which is more accurate than a factory gauge. Both rudder and elevator trim for ease of flying. Also the fuel selector has left/right/both options. Upgraded adjustable panel light system which was very nice on our night flight. At one point in the past, the plane wasn't flown for a while. It has been completely checked and flew hundreds of hours after so no factor. There was a minor hanger rash that happened when hand pushing which was professionally fixed. Most sellers wouldn't mention those minor negative points but we like to describe as accurately as possible. Comfortable upgraded leather seats. Both height and tilt adjustable. Plastic and headliner in very good condition. Clean carpet as well. All the glasses are clean. No fogging. Great visibility all around. Passenger window has the photo window upgrade. The engine is Lycoming 180HP O-360. This is one of the best and most reliable engines. TBO is 2000 hours. This engine has just over 1000 hours with great compressions. Well maintained, these engines can run around 3500 hours before requiring an overhaul. This is one of the nicest 177B I have seen for a while. Flies great. Comfortable smooth ride. This is a type of a plane you would be proud to own. Please contact us if you have any questions or if there is any way we can help. 6 things we can do for you... 1.

The video play icon   I want to trade my aircraft with this 1973 CESSNA 177B

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 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.

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.

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

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

- Bob & John

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!
