Welcome to CFA, Stephen, it's great to have you with us! Regarding the 182/182RG: Get ready for the great compromise: You can have speed/climb performance or useful load. To have both takes buckets of money :) My advice would be to purchase or borrow POH manuals for both airplanes and review both weight and balance and performance charts. Then talk with both kinds of owners, which I hope will chime in here. You can purchase or download POH manuals from:


These folks have manuals for all three categories of 182's and I've done business with them several times.

Best of luck in your new endeavor!

My name is Stephen & a new private pilot. I am looking at purchasing a 182 & need some advise or suggestions. I have a family of 4 & want a plane that will accommodate us on cross country flights & give us speed & power. I have been looking at the RG which they are saying 150knots, also the fixed gear with the p-ponk engine upgrade. What is the climb performance & short field performance on hot summer days in the RG with the lesser HP? Any advise or suggestions will be appreciated!!
