Congratulations on your latest “time machine” Lily.
Nice to read you SidVarma as we have some in common :
(having just moved to a beautiful airpark here on the west coast of France) I am now considering the purchase of a 182.
Just as you I am a newbee both with respect of this machine and with respect of this forum : therefore I kindly support all your future questions and i will pay the utmost attention to the answers !
Welcome Jim! We're very pleased to have you on the forum!
Many thanks for such a warm welcome Scott.
It now remains to me to rise to the occasion, since English is not my mother tongue...
Sid, congrats on getting the retract 182.
I have a 1981 TR182 that I have owned for more than 10 years.
I have pretty much seen it all when it comes to flying and maintaining the TR182 .
It’s a great plane to fly.
Welcome! We upgraded to a 1981 R182 in 2014 and love the airplane. We did spend a fair amount of time and money fixing stuff that was not properly maintained by the previous owner. I don't think that the PO was cutting corners, but the shop he hired for repairs and annuals sure was! Now though, the airplane is fast (for a Cessna), comfortable, and had great payload and range.
