History

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

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