Cessna 182



The Cessna 182 is a single engine, general aviation aircraft used in commercial services and also for personal use. The 182 was introduced in 1956 as a tricycle gear variant of the 180.  It is an all-metal (mostly aluminum alloy) aircraft that shares some of the same wing design as the smaller Cessna 172 and the larger 205/206 series. The 182 is considered to be the second most popular Cessna model after the 172.
