  Description

This 1976 Cessna 172M Skyhawk can do 9 things that a standard 172M can’t. This is a rare chance for you to own a special plane. (please watch the details in the video above) Over $37,000 added value upgrades in the plane make all these possible. This plane has all the great features of a 172M and much more. We fly this plane a lot. It is fun, exciting, reliable, safe and economical. Let's look at the 9 things it can do that a standard 172M can't. 1 This 172M has more power 2 It can climb faster 3 It can fly faster 4 It can fly and land in the dark without any gauges, vacuum or electricity 5 It burns less fuel 6 It can take off and land in very short fields, and out in the backcountry where a standard 172M can’t 7 It can fly higher - 15,000-17,000ft 8 It can glide much longer with no power 9 It can fly slower than a standard 172M - we’ll show you, it’s like its hanging in the air (the video of this plane shows all in detail, including flight) Beautiful pearl white 3 tone paint looks like the latest 172 (Don't we all like to own a great looking airplane?). Very clean panel with digital radios so you can have all frequencies in memory. ADS-B out so you can fly in any airspace. Panel mounted iPad, connected to ADS-B in weather, traffic and inflight data. Stratus receiver has WAAS GPS, so you have synthetic vision as well. This is an expensive way to set up an iPad but the best way to do it. (You will see in the video how useful it is in flight) All logs, no damage history, recent annual completed. Great compressions (72-77) starts without even priming. Flies great. Bright LED lights. Previously owned by a very experienced commercial pilot. 172M model is the most desirable. 1976 is the last 172M you can buy. It has a Lycoming O-320-E2D engine. Most reliable and long lasting engine that usually goes 3000-3800 hours before overhaul. This 172 is even approved to run on auto gas (although it has been using avgas). If you want you can use auto gas and save about $1500 for every 100 hours you fly. Look at the upgrades and average costs. Paint - $13,000 Interior - $5,000 STOL kit - $4,500 Power Flow Exhaust - $5,500 Electronic ignition - $2,000 Panel upgrades - $5,000 ADS-B out - $2,200 Total - $37,200 If you were to do all these upgrades it would cost you around $37,000 and months of time. There are other 172Ms you can buy, but it is unlikely you will find one like this, especially for the price of a standard 172M. So if you are looking for a 172 please check this one out. Feel free to ask any questions. I appreciate your interest in our 172. We can… 1. Transport anywhere in USA 2. Arrange prebuy with local shop or bring your mechanic 3. Arrange free airport pickup and dropoff 4. Give free 5 hour type training with a CFI if you need 5. Help you to find financing & insurance 6. Arrange to look at the aircraft on weekends also - if you schedule ahead

The video play icon   I want to trade my aircraft with this 1976 CESSNA 172M

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 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.

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.

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

- Bob & John

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.
