  SOLD - 1976 Cessna Skylane 182P - SOLD

N29CM is a rare plane in the market today - a two owner spectacularly corrosion free plane that has always been based at the Longmont, Colorado airport.

This plane was originally purchased by Cole Kugel, whose family founded the Longmont Airport and eventually donated the airport to the city of Longmont.  Mr. Kugel is in the Guinness World Book as the world's oldest qualified pilot at the time of his death.

This plane has always been hangared and it shows.
The current owner of N29CM flies the same trip from Longmont to Wyoming quite a bit, and even has a hangar on the other end so she doesn't sleep outside. The glass is original and in excellent condition.  The interior is original and is as good as could  possibly be expected from a plane of this age.

Open up a few inspection plates in the wing and see bright shiny sheet metal (see pictures below).  No damage history - ever.  This is the kind of plane where you can easily tell it has been babied.  When you push the seat backs forward they don't flop forward like most Cessnas in the fleet - they are tight and feel near new.  The yokes and control linkages are tight.  Remove the cowling and it is stiff like the day it was delivered. The plastic isn't dry and brittle like nearly all Cessnas of this vintage. The doors feel tight.  The belly was photographed after just 15 minutes of detailing - that is the way it is kept!  The paint was done in 2002 and looks like a one year old paint job, even though this plane flies 120 to 150 hours a year. 

The S-Tec 60-2 is as good an autopilot you will typically find in a Skylane, and does heading bug, nav/localizer tracking, altitude hold and glideslope intercept.  The radios in the plane look as though they have been used just several years, not the decades that they have been there. 

At overhaul time the original engine was replaced with a Continental Factory Remanufactured engine.  The compressions are good and there is at most one-half quart added between the 25 hour oil changes. 

The logbooks are complete, there is no damage history,  the airframe is exceptionally straight with no hail damage, and this plane is as good as they get with regard to corrosion. As Cessnas of this vintage age, corrosion is becoming a bigger and bigger issue. This plane will never be a corrosion problem if it stays inside in a tight, dry hangar. 

The current owner is looking to go a little faster and a little higher.

Please don't hesitate to call us at (303) 503-8356 with further questions regarding N29CM, insurance, finance options, upgrades or transition training. This plane is based at the Longmont Vance Brand Airport in the Denver area and can be viewed by appointment.

Engines & Propellers
    • Continental O-470-S with 1250  Hours Since Factory Remanufacture (Installed May of 1996)
    • High compressions and low oil burn (see logbook copies)
    • 1250 Hours Since Propeller OH
    • Fresh Prop Governor Overhaul as of 4/2010

The O-470 is one of  few Continentals engines that will regularly go past the recommended TBO (call for a copy of the Aviation Consumer article on TBO busting), and N29CM's engine in particular will be a fantastic candidate to go past recommended TBO due to its regular 100+ hour yearly use, great condition, and dry history.  The 1976 P-model is the last year of the Skylane that can run autofuel and/or mogas.

Paint & Interior

Paint was completely stripped and  re-done in 2002 by Cimmarron, using base white 570-535 Jet Glo, with W00241 blue, W07431 red, and W01955 black Acry Glo accents.  There are a few chips on commonly used fasteners and a few random flaws.   This plane's exterior shows as near new.  The glass is all original and in excellent condition.

Interior is original and in exceptional condition for its age. It does have some flaws as would be expected 30+ years later,  the condition of the interior truly shows the love this plane has had from its two owners.
