Detailed Description

Cessna 182 Katmai – Gorgeous 1979 182Q in excellent condition with Katmai conversion and many other mods.Formerly known as a Cessna 182Q, this 1979 plane has been transformed into a super-stol aircraft. I have gone above and beyond the Katmai STC to include many other STCs and modifications listed here. This plane is my first baby and I have given it the best possible care. I’m the third and longest time owner (16 years). It has always lived in dry country (California, Colorado and Idaho), with a one year stay in Virginia. It’s always been hangared and been flown regularly with regular maintenance. It has complete logs and I’ve kept nearly every receipt for all the work and mods completed since 2001. I’ve spared no expense in building my dream machine.
