SOLD - 1997 Cessna Skylane 182S - SOLD

The Skylane was re-introduced after a 10 year hiatus with the 1997 Skylane 182S.  A few significant changes were introduced with the Skylane 182S - most significant was the introduction of the fuel injected Lycoming IO-540 engine to the Skylane. In the 1980's,  the factory turbo-charged models had installed a carbureted  version of the Lycoming 540, with great success.  Even with a Turbo, the Lycoming was lasting longer than the normally aspirated O-470 Continental.  The fuel injection, in this day and age of $4.00 and up fuel, represents a huge savings in fuel burn.

The "parallel valve" Lycoming engine is very highly derated to its rating of 235 hp in the Skylane - a characteristic that has helped these engines go right through the recommended 2000 hour TBO with frequent excursions up to 3000 hours and higher.  The parallel valve Lycoming IO-540 is the same family of engine that is used by the Piper Comanche 260 (260 hp) and Piper Aztecs (250 hp and Turbo) with great longevity.

N116VX  is the 42nd of the new production Skylane S models.  Crankshaft AD compiance was completed in 2009 -  a major overhaul was done at the point where the 12 year requirement of the Crankshaft AD had expired.

Upgrades to the panel include a Garmin 430 and a BF Goodrich TAS-497 active traffic system.  Any upgrades to avionics can be packaged into the sale of this aircraft - please don't hesistate to contact us with you wish list.

This Skylane has always been hangared , and has never been a trainer or on a rental line.  This plane is based in the Tulsa Oklahoma area, where it can be viewed by appointment.  Transition training and delivery services are available. 

All specifications provided are believed to be accurate as of 9/2015, but are subject to verification.
