  1978 Cessna Skylane 182Q

N78LH was manufactured in the second year of the Skylane 182Q, the first year with the 24 volt electrical system.  The Q model has the quieter O-470-U (low RPM) engine which is approved for a recommended TBO of up to 2000 hours.

This plane has a mostly Western history, based in Bakersfield California from new to the mid 1990's, then to Minnesota and Wisconsin, and from 2002 to present in Colorado.  Condition of the glass and paint would indicate this plane has spent most if not all its life hangared.  With the recent Western Skyways 2000 TBO engine, S-Tec 60-2 Autopilot, and updated radios this plane is ready for IFR travel for years to come.

Please don't hesitate to call us at (303) 503-8356 with further questions regarding N78LH, insurance, finance options, upgrades or transition training. This plane is owned by Larson Aircraft, based at Longmont, and can be viewed by appointment.
