SOLD – 2016 Boss 182 Conversion

This Boss 182 wheeled conversion is now available for delivery.  The Boss conversion is only available on steam gauge aircraft. This one has been designed to be as close to new as they come.   No details have been spared.  This is the highest HP conversion available for any 182, paired with a Horton STOL. THIS IS NOT JUST AN ENGINE SWAP! The airframe has been through a rigorous inspection, firewall forward is brand new powered by the Lycoming 580 engine with 315 HP (that’s nearly 100 HP over the IO-540). This engine is a high torque engine used in Aerobatic applications and includes an additional firewall beef up and heavy duty engine mount, thus allowing for a very smooth running machine when paired with Hartzell’s new composite Trailblazer 82” propeller. This prop is not available on new 182s! If it’s a small strip you need to get in and out of, and want all the modern amenities of the new 182 fuselage, PLUS a gross weight increase, this is the way to go!  The Garmin G500 Suite offers many of the same options as the G1000 Suite but allows for the backup reliability of steam gauges and dual GPS(s) systems for any time the avionics shop isn’t an arm’s length away. You will experience a significant increase in takeoff roll, climb rates and cruising speeds! Just when you thought new was the way to go, this conversion offers a new warranty on engine, propeller, paint and interior!
