Cessna 182 S

Imperial City, Beijing, China

The 182 first flew in 1956, and its big advancement was the patented Land-O-Matic tricycle-landing gear (weren't the fifties grand?), which make landing and ground handling easier, attracting would-be pilots who didn't want to fly taildraggers. The Cessna 182 Skylane feels and acts like a heavier, more powerful version of its sibling, the 172 Skyhawk. While there is nothing tricky about flying the 182, pilots shouldn't underestimate it - the Skylane doesn't tolerate indifferent pilot technique.
