With only 2,825 total hours, a nicely equipped Garmin panel with autopilot, heavy duty tires and an AirGlas nose fork, this beautiful, low-time Cessna 182Q is a fantastic backcountry and IFR aircraft.

When you review the detailed images below, look carefully at the paint, interior and instrument panel. You'll see that this Skylane has been well cared for. The recent, professionally designed paint scheme catches a lot of attention on the ramp. The original leather seats, in nice condition, make this Skylane look great inside. Floor carpet has been replaced by a durable mat, providing excellent wear and a spartan look.

With well over 1,100 lbs of useful load, this 182Q easily hauls a load of people and baggage, or will make you the most popular pilot at a backcountry fly-in with all the gear you bring in!

Exterior - 9/10 Always hangared, most recently in the desert southwest. The recent paint is in very good condition. The paint quality and scheme are professional-level. The over-sized tundra tires and AirGlas nose fork add significant backcountry capabilities to this 182. The tires are in excellent condition. There is one small area of damage on the leading edge of the right wing, compliments of an errant detailing crew. The Plexiglas windshield is clear, as are front side windows. Rear windows show some minor aging which is not easily noticed. This airplane has ramp presence and attracts all the backcountry enthusiasts. Beautiful exterior.

Engine Data Mgmt System

Panel - 9/10 The updated instrument panel, loaded with Garmin equipment, including a Garmin GFC-500 Autopilot and a JPI EDM-830 Engine Data Management System, is well laid out. This 182 has been flown in IFR conditions and can shoot GPS approaches down to LPV minimums.

Interior - 7.5/10 The interior is clean and well kept. The original factory leather seats are in fantastic condition for their age and show only some minor wear - please look at the detailed pictures. The underlying seat padding is in good condition. The headliner is in good condition, no tears, only some minor discoloring due to age. The floor carpet has been replaced with a heavy duty rubber-like mat which wears well, looks better, is friendlier in dusty or mud/snow environments, and does not absorb odors.

Overall - One of the most expensive components of updating an aircraft is the instrument panel. This 182 has a well-equipped Garmin panel, ready to go for any flight condition. The aircraft has also been significantly upgraded to make it very capable in the backcountry.

This airplane looks even better in person than it looks online. As careful as I was during the photo shoot, the pictures don't do it justice. The depth of the paint, and the cleanliness of the aircraft, really come through when you see it in person.

If you are looking for a solid 182 with excellent IFR capability and backcountry options, and one that looks great inside and out, this is the airplane for you.
