Cessna 182

Cessna 182

The Cessna 182 Skylane is the next step up from Cessna’s 172 Skyhawk. It is still in production, 60 years after it was introduced in 1956, and is the second most popular Cessna, after the 172. It’s direct evolution is from the tail dragging Cessna 180, with a nose gear adaptation and added tricycle landing gear. The Cessna Skylane’s stability and adaptability have made it a consistently popular aircraft. While the original 182 had a straight tail and windowless back, Cessna added a swept tailfin and rear “omni’vision” window that gave the 182 a sleek profile. Additional improvements included a wider fuselage, enlarged baggage compartment, and landing gear changes.
