Well, here we go! This will be my first annual on the 182. I’ve owned the plane for almost exactly a year now (bought it right out of annual last February). I’m hoping for the best but prepared for anything. I took it to a shop that’s highly respected and known to be little on the expensive side. I really want to know exactly what I have so I expect it won’t be cheep. I put 140 hours on it since I bought it and really didn’t have any squawks. Here’s to hoping for a good outcome! I’ve been told the first annual can be an eye opening experience.
