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 1979-built Cessna R182 Skylane RG s/n R182-01281 was registered N2008S in the USA. On 19 May 1989, registration N2008S was cancelled as exported to France. On 21 June 1989, the aircraft was registered F-GHAO in France with Union financière de location de materiél / Unimat SA. On 24 April 1996, registration F-GHAO was cancelled as destroyed. On 13 February 1997, for the airframe registration D-EWGA was reserved in Germany, but the reservation was cancelled the same year. In 2002, the rebuilt Cessna R182 Skylane RG c/n R182-01281 was registered as D-EPSR in Germany and operated as a parachutist aircraft. On 18 January 2003, the aircraft was damaged in a belly landing at Stockerau airfield in Austria, but repaired. In 2007, Cessna R182 Skylane RG D-EPSR was seen operated by Pink Aviation Services and on 14 May 2008, the aircraft was re-registered OK-OOO. On 17 July 2015, the Pink Aviation Services' Cessna OK-OOO was seen at Flugplatz Leer-Papenburg during Pink Boogie Leer 2015.
