This 2005 Cessna 182T Skylane is a capable, versatile, and advanced personal aircraft. With a fuel-injected 230-hp Lycoming engine, 141-knot cruise speed, and Garmin-1000 glass cockpit system, it offers the ultimate in mission flexibility. At just $99/hr dry, it's $35 per hour less expensive than the only other G-1000-equipped Cessna 182 in the Bay Area.

The Garmin 1000 'glass-panel' system delivers communication and navigation capabilities  far superior to the avionics installed in many airliners. It includes dual flat-panel displays, dual navcomms, dual IFR-approach-certified GPS units, a Mode S transponder, a Traffic Information System and Terrain Warning System, a Stormscope, and NEXRAD inflight weather data. N182BG also features a two-axis autopilot, backup flight instruments, and a standby battery. For the ultimate in inflight comfort, it's got air conditioning, a sumptuous leather interior, and front seatbelt airbags.
