182 Mission capability

182 Mission capability

I am a first time plane buyer, considering the purchase of 1969 182M.  My basic mission for the plane is to fly a family of four approximately 275 NM.  Together, we weigh approximately 750 pounds.  Is this a feasible mission for such a plane with full (60 gallon) tanks?  I know that a precise answer requires knowing the actual weight, etc. of the paricular plane.  I'm just trying to figure out if I am in the ballpark or if  have to leave someone behind (or look for someting else).

I thank anyone who responds for taking the time.

Re: 182 Mission capability

You are most likely overweight without luggage and depending where you fly from, in a normal asp engine density altitude will be a big concern even getting off the ground. Consider the turbo 182 or even a 206 with or without a turbo.  I would test fly the various models if you can find them and load them down to see how they handle.  Good luck and fly safe.

Assuming, the empty weight is around 1700 lbs, and your max is 2800 you
have 1100 lbs to play with. That airplane has an airspeed of about 135 kts. In still wind conditions, you can do your trip in just over 2 hrs. that normally aspirated 182 with its 0470 engine properly leaned will burn about 12 gallons per hour. but for safety's sake plan for a 14 gph burn. If you take 40 gallons total you gain another 120 pounds of cargo carrying capability and you land with 1 hr of fuel in the tanks. your fuel weight would be 240 lbs giving you 860 lbs for your family and bags. I have a 1968 182 and it is perfect for my family. there is nothing wrong with stoping half way when the wind slows you down.

nothing better out there than a 182 for a family
