The Cessna 182 Skylane is an American four-seat, single-engine, light airplane, built by Cessna of Wichita, Kansas. Introduced in 1956, the 182 has been produced in a number of variants, including the Club’s 182RG version with retractable landing gear, and is the second most popular Cessna model, after the 172.

The retractable gear R182 and TR182 were offered from 1978 to 1986, without and with engine turbocharging respectively. The model designation nomenclature differs from some other Cessna models with optional retractable gear. For instance, the retractable version of the Cessna 172 was designated as the 172RG, whereas the retractable gear version of the Cessna 182 is the R182. Cessna gave the R182 the marketing name of “Skylane RG”.

The Cessna 182 Skylane RG is powered by a 235 hp (175 kW) Lycoming O-540-J3C5D piston engine, with a gross weight 1,406 kg.

Our Cessna 182 is available to The Royal Aero Club of Western Australia members and the general public for private hire, training, scenic flights or charter. Bookings can be made via our friendly Operations Team on (08) 9417 0000.
