Hi all. I'm new to this forum, and am looking for some opinions regarding a 1979 C182 Turbo RG my friend and I are possibly interested in buying. The plane is currently owned by a small company that my buddy had flown for at times over the years. He's flown this particular plane several times since 2014, and says it's a good flying plane. However, the owner died, and passed the company to his sons who are looking to sell the plane. It's currently a hangar queen. The heirs are willing to sell to my buddy and I at a good price due to his history with the family. Anyway, the plane is always hangered, with a paint job about 10 years old that is in pristine condition. The interior is about a 7/10. Good avionics package that is not ADS-B compliant. The plane just completed it's annual. In a previous life, the plane was owned by the state of Utah up until the early 90's. Total airframe is around 7500 hours, and most of that was with Utah. only about 2000 hours added since the 90's. The engine has about 1700 hours on it. It's very likely the owners will sell us the plane for between $70k and $90k. With $70k being more likely. We looked through the logs this weekend, and didn't see anything to concern us, other than high times. So, what are the opinions out there? Good deal for a high time aircraft? Would you even consider 7000 plus hour high time? Any concerns with that? We know we'd be looking at an engine overhaul in a few years. Thanks!
