Information on the 182 Skylane

The Cessna 182, marketed by Cessna under the name Skylane, is a 4 seater single engine light aircraft. The 182 is the second most popular model produced by Cessna after the 172. Many updated variants of the Skylane have been offered over the years.


The Cessna 182 was introduced in 1956 as a tricycle gear variant of the 180. In 1957, the 182A variant was introduced along with the name Skylane. Later models have added more powerful engines and bigger windows.

Beginning in 2005, Cessna began offering the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit as an optional upgrade to the Skylane.

182 in other countries

Cessna 182's were also built in Argentina by DINFIA (designated A182) and by Reims Aviation, France, as F182s.


This was the chosen plane by James May to try and beat the Bugatti Veyron driven by Jeremy Clarkson on the race from Italy to London. Upon seeing the plane, Richard Hammond commented "James, It's pathetic! It looks like something a builder would leave behind." He would later remark that "182" referred to how much it costs.
