New to forum with original 182P
Figured I’d say hello after I’ve been away for a few years. Sold my 421C this summer after our mission flying back and forth from Colorado to Oklahoma changed. Looking forward to some low and slow flying again.
i recently semi retired as a family doc and former AME and work part time on the side.
Word of mouth put me on the “Blue Goose”. It is an original 182P which lived its entire life in Steamboat springs, CO. The sellers father purchased it new in 1975 and she has always been hangared. I drooled over this beauty for years when living there and am super excited about owning the time capsule it is. My first intention is to get some avionics upgraded and make it IFR. When able I’m going to knock my commercial and possibly CFI out and my son will probably use for flight training when he decides to do that.
The current paint shined up really well after good detail and the wife and I will most likely keep that as it is.
TT aircraft and engine is 1370 hours and I’m juggling ideas for its engine when that time comes.
i hope to take delivery in the next week or two and she will be hangared at KRVS in Tulsa.
Just a carbureted guy in fuel injected world!
