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 1975-built Cessna 182P Skylane c/n 182-63967 was registered N278TM in the USA. On 1 April 1998, registration N278TM was cancelled as exported to Guatemala, where the aircraft was registered TG-DHL. Cessna 182P Skylane TG-DHL is fitted with a 285 hp engine and operated by ACG - Aero Club de Guatemala, based at Aeropuerto de Guatemala - La Aurora.
On 13 September 2019, Cessna 182P Skylane TG-DHL was seen at Flugplatz Leer-Papenburg in Germany, where the aircraft arrived on 30 July 2019, thirteen days after it started in Guatemala for a flight via the USA, Greenland, Iceland and Scotland to Germany. In October, the Cessna will begin its return flight to Guatemala.
