  Description

Please make sure to watch the full video above of this plane. The video has everything, including a detailed flight. There is one airplane that is more desired and in demand than the Cessna 172M model. That’s the Cessna 172M- 180 horsepower conversion. This plane is even better with everything an owner desires. Very low hours, 2000 hours on the airframe and only 290 hours on the engine. Very nice, newer paint with late model theme. Upgraded interior is like a luxury airplane. Completely upgraded avionics; digital radios, dual CDI with glideslopes, two Garmin - Garmin 660 and Garmin GPS, ADS-B out. This airplane is a great value because: 1. The interior and exterior costs around $24,000 to upgrade. 2. The avionics upgrades cost around $16,000. If you consider the $40,000 extra cost on the upgrades, with our asking price of $99,500 - you are getting a very low hour 172-180 conversion for only $59,500 Great performance with SuperHawk Penn Yan STC 180 horsepower conversion. Flew 900 miles and this outclimbed our Cardinal RG I think one of the main reasons this 180hp converted plane has a higher demand is that the first factory Cessna 172, the 1998 172S Skyhawk SP costs around $200,000. With this plane you can have performance close to the Skyhawk SP for half the price. You can enjoy fun and safe 172 flying with much better performance. Over 1000ft climb rate, over 19,000ft ceiling and 151mph cruise speed makes it a safe plane in difficult weather conditions or mountainous terrain. The plane can take off in just 400ft. So you can fly from anywhere. The plane is ADS-B out equipped and we will include an ADS-B in receiver to give you free, real time traffic and weather along with all the other information available in the latest Garmin 660 found in the center stack. I haven’t seen this quality interior in a plane for a long time. Everything is upgraded: seats, carpets, and panels. Very clean glass This plane was owned by a professional pilot; hangered; no flight school history; no hail; all logs since new. There was a hard landing reported in 1995, minor damage reported which was professionally repaired, documented and its been flown for years since - in 2017 a different engine and propeller were installed so I do not believe it is a factor but we like to mention anything we find on our aircraft. 172-180 conversion is hard to find. It is nearly impossible to find in a plane of this condition and with such low hours. This is a plane you can be proud to own and you will get compliments from others. Please make sure to watch the video for all the details and performance of this plane.

The video play icon   I want to trade my aircraft with this 1973 CESSNA 172M

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 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

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 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 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 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 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
