To those of you who have been bashing Cessna recently on this site: It may be time to eat some crow.
I recently read about Cessna’s improvements for the 182 for 2003.
While all “Johnny-come-lately” engineers could come with on the SR22 was Ice Protection and a PFD, Cessna engineers were burning the midnight oil.
You guessed it!! The 2003 Skylane will be sporting a new paint scheme, a beefier 95-amp alternator, a 12-volt convenience outlet, AND a polished spinner.
