The Cessna 182 have 4 seats, one Pilot and 3 Passengers. It is suitable to obtain the “Variable Pitch” Endorsements. The aircraft will be IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) categorized so that it may be used of Single Engine - IFR training. Introduced in 1956 as a tricycle gear variant of the Cessna 180. In 1957, the 182A variant was introduced along with the name Skylane. As production continued, later models were improved regularly with features such as a wider fuselage, swept vertical fin with rear "omni-vision" window, enlarged baggage compartment, higher gross weights, landing gear changes, etc. The "restart" aircraft built after 1996 were different in many other details including a different engine, new seating design, etc. In 2005, Cessna began offering the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit as an optional upgrade to the Skylane. Subsequently the glass cockpit became standard equipment. In mid 2013 Cessna plans to introduce the next model of the 182T, the JT-A. It will use the 227 hp (169 kW) SMA SR305-230 diesel engine running on Jet-A with a burn rate of 11 U.S. gallons (42 L; 9.2 imp gal) per hour and cruise at 155 kns (287 km/h). The normally aspirated, avgas fueled 182 will remain in production through 2014.

Cessna produced over 23,237 of this type.
