Cessna R182

This is a picture of a Cessna R182 at Wellington, a short time prior to departure to its Hamilton home base. This is one of only two retractable 182's in the country.

I'd always thought the designation was 182RG. The registration bears me out I think. I've heard the name a fair bit as I listen to one Adam Curry on his podcast and he owns/flies one of these out of Fairoaks in the UK. N277DS.

Gidday mate. Yeah, I thought C182RG also... I just copied what the CAA aircraft register had.

The guy who flies that 182 is a good friend of mine and has to be one of the most awesomest pilots I've ever flown with...

Yeah what Chris said. That is one immaculate plane both inside and out. I'd love to go up in it but the opportunity has never arisen.

Surely there must be more than 2 182RGs in NZ. A T182RG MAS belongs to a fellow club member, and I know I've seen other 182RGs around NZ.

ZK-MAS is categorised on the CAA site as a Cessna TR182, so yeah, there will be other 182's around - just not sure of the designations for them... must look it up one day.
