1980 Cessna Turbo Skylane RG

The Turbo Skylane RG has long been regarded to be one of the best of Cessna's many fantastic single engine designs.  Lycomings of the 540 cubic inch family are often rated up to 350 horsepower. Rated at only 235 hp in the Turbo Skylane RG this engine tends to last nearly forever.  The Turbo Skylane RG will cruise at 170 KTAS at altitude, and has remarkable endurance and range with  the 88 gal "wet wing".  The Skylane RG gear system is very reliable with the hydro-electric power-pack system developed for the late 1970's vintage Cessnas.

This is arguably the finest TR182 on the market today, as well as being one of the finest all-around 182RG's in existence.

N4920S is a three owner plane, with it's second owner having owned it from 1985-2004, based in the high desert climate of Reno Nevada. The third owner has had the plane in inland Northern California for the past 5-6 years, where it has been hangared and mostly used for day trips.  This plane has no history of airframe damage, complete maintenance records since new, no corrosion, and has spent nearly it's entire off-duty life in a hangar.  The glass on this plane is in exceptional condition, especially considering all but the windshield is original.  There are very few Skylane RG's left with a similar impeccable history, and even fewer which are so loaded with equipment.

The engine major overhaul was done in a premium shop with no expense spared.  Original paint and interior show the manner in which this plane has been handled through the years.

For those who want the latest and greatest, we can coordiate competitive avionics upgrades with a very short downtime - any upgrades can be included in financing.
