Skydive and Float Operation

The Cessna 182 is a great candidate for skydive operators. Oliver Carl of Carl Aero states, "The performance upgrade has proven to be extremely popular among skydive operators, as it drastically reduces operating costs while increasing efficiency at the same time. Typically the stock 182 requires 35-45 minutes per lift while the 182 equipped with Air Plains 300 horsepower can do the job in 15 minutes at only two thirds the cost."

If pairing your engine upgrade with other great products such an Electronic Ignition System, STOL Kit, WingX wing extensions, larger tires, skydive or seaplane application, engine port and polish, or tuned exhaust system, please share your list with Air Plains.

Air Plains can perform the installation in house or ship complete with the engine upgrade STC kit.

Many Cessna 180 and 182s owners pair Air Plains 300hp engine upgrade with float installations and get the most out of the planned downtime.

Contact Air Plains for additional information and preferred installation facilities.
