The Cessna 182S is one of the high-quality aircraft models in FlightGear.
    
The new Cessna 182S has a very detailed 3D model and a cockpit with highly detailed textures. Most of the switches in the cockpit are already clickable and working. It has a very realistic FDM based on real aerodynamic coefficients and the pilot operating handbook; engine power, EGT and fuel performance are tuned according the pilot operating handbook, the weight and balance behaves like written in the handbook.

Also, if the user has enabled ALS (Atmospheric light scattering) in the Rendering Options, some effects are activated such as cockpit shadows, visible landing lights from the cockpit and rain effect on the windshield.

The Cessna 182S comes with static objects which can be activated via the Ground Equipment dialog in the aircraft menu. These include a fuel tank trailer, ladders to access the fuel caps (and which the walker can climb(only in FG Versions before 2017.3.1 !!) and a ground power unit. Security cones are also available. Special Feature: The ground equipment will stay on ground where placed, independent from the movement of the aircraft!  The aircraft can also go through a pre-flight check: wheel chocks, tie-downs and the pitot tube cover can now be added or removed.

==Feature-List:==
 +
* very accurate flight model based on real test aerodynamic coefficients and POH
 +
* accurate fuel flow numbers, engine power, airspeed and climbrate in nearly all pressure altitudes and temperatures with less than 5% difference from POH
 +
* realistic stall behavior
 +
* calculation of real KIAS based on KCAS, based on POH
 +
* accurate weight and balance behavior
 +
 +
* New Start-up States: aircraft can be initialized in cruise, landing, takeoff and more states
 +
 +
* fully simulated fuel system: fuel flow by gravity for each of the two tanks, engine and fuel pump simulated; engine needs correct priming procedure according POH, fuel contamination simulated
 +
* realistic electrical system, battery charge state depending on temperature, working circuit breakers
 +
* fully simulated oil management (temperature, ....)
 +
* autostart for beginners
 +
 +
* High quality 3d-model, textures and animations
 +
* Realistic exterior reflection shaders with fresnel effect and normalmap
 +
* selectable chromed spinner and wheel fairings
 +
* Very detailed 3d-interior
 +
* 90% of all switches are working (except yet static source and cabin climate controls - WIP!)
 +
* fully working audio panel
 +
* fully simulated KAP140 autopilot
 +
* Realistic interior light effects in ALS-Renderer
 +
* Interior shadows in ALS-Renderer
 +
* Exterior 3d-shadow in ALS-Renderer
 +
* selectable and fully simulated Winterization kit
 +
* External equipement like ladders, safety cones, tie ups, pitot cover, wheel chocks, external power source, simulated external engine pre-heater with sound - they keep their position on ground!
 +
* aircraft can be checked outside (free movement check of flight control surfaces; oil, fuel, pitot heat, ....)
 +
* Walker - can be used to follow the Checklist outside
 +
* Save states: aircraft remembers last switch, systems and configuration state
 +
* Many liveries
