Featured in Water Flying 2015! This Boss 182 has only 70 hours total time since the completion of a full Boss 182 Conversion:
This Boss 182 has only 70 hours total time since the completion of a full Boss 182 Conversion: Delivered in 2015 with new paint, interior, and the most powerful factory new engine conversion available for any 182 amphib. With an increased gross weight to 3370 lbs., an impressive decreased water run and performance figures. The latest and greatest GTN 750 offers touch screen next generation integrated avionic suite! Top of the line performance with the new Hartzell Composite Trailblazer Prop. A one-of-a-kind, like new, Boss 182.
Why fly a Boss Conversion?
All 182 amphib conversion’s may look the same, but don’t be fooled, underneath the new paint and interiors, the details set them apart. All Wipaire Boss conversions are completed on new generation Cessna 182’s that offer the most-up-to date modern and safety upgrades. This includes: factory corrosion proofing, sound proofing, FAR 23 crash rated seats, more modern auto pilots and instrument panels. Each conversion is equipped with a Lycoming 580 engine offering more torque and horsepower than any other engine available on wheels or floats!
