Cessna 182Q/R Skylane II

Cessna 182Q/R Skylane II

Single engine light observation aircraft

In order to replace the ageing Alouette II helicopters of the Rijkswacht/Gendarmerie the Belgian government ordered three second-hand Cessna 182 Skylane II observation aircraft on the American market. Before delivery they were overhauled and standardised at the Cessna factory in Reims (France). After the loss of G-03 at Melsbroek a replacement aircraft was bought. As Puma G-02 was still in service at the time of the Cessna order no G-2 serial was attributed to the Cessna’s.
