  1. I am currently refurbishing a 1974 182P. Of course I started my update before some of these new systems were announced, so I am stuck with the certified items, mainly the STEC autopilot. When I am done, will have about $240,000 total investment, but everything will be new, top to bottom, front to back and side to side (wings getting refurbished also) Not going to find a new 182 for that. I am excited about the new avionics and instrumentation that is starting to make its way to the market. Will have to integrate into my project. Some call me crazy and stupid to update such an old aircraft, but if you want a new airplane, and don’t want to spend upwards of $600K, I believe the used market update is the best route.
