The Cessna 182 is a four-seat single engined high wing light aircraft of all-metal construction, developed by Cessna Aircraft Company, Wichita, Kansas, USA. Introduced in 1956, the Model 182 was derived from the Model 180 and employed the same basic airframe and engine but featuring a nosewheel undercarriage. The Model 182 was approved by the FAA on 2 March 1956. In 1957, the first major design change was introduced in the Model 182A. As production continued, later models were improved regularly with features such as a wider fuselage, swept tailfin with rear "omni-vision" window, enlarged baggage compartment, higher gross weights, landing gear changes, etc. In 1958, the name Skylane was introduced being a de luxe version. In 1978, the retractable gear R182 was introduced. The landing gear retraction system in the R182 uses hydraulic actuators powered by an electrically-driven pump. Cessna gave the R182 the marketing name of "Skylane RG". The "Model 182" remained in production until 1986 when Cessna stopped production entirely for ten years due to the high cost of liability. After the General Aviation Revitalization Act became law, Cessna resumed production in Independence, Kansas, in 1996. More than 23,350 aircraft with several model variants are delivered.

The 1971-built Cessna 182P Skylane s/n 182-60834 was registered N9294G in the USA. In 1972, the Cessna 182P Skylane was registered D-ECRT in Germany. On 5 February 1987, Cessna 182P Skylane D-ECRT was restored to the US-register as N26561 with a privat owner in Bavaria, Germany. On 16 April 2001, registration N26561 was cancelled as exported to Germany and the aircraft was re-registered D-ESRT. On 2 September 2016, Cessna 182P Skylane D-ESRT was seen at Flugplatz Rheine-Eschendorf in Germany, where the aircraft is operated as a parachutist aircraft by Fallschirmsport-Rheine.
