Buying Your Airplane
Possession is nine tenths of the fun! At least that's what many aircraft owners say. They enjoy the power of having a plane at their disposal whenever they wish. On alternate days, of course, these same owners curse the high price of ongoing expenses that go up even when their planes don't. What's the answer for the sport pilot? Should you buy your own plane or shouldn't you? For some pilots, plane ownership is a cost-effective eagle. For others, it's a very expensive albatross. Your decision to buy or not to buy must be based on facts more than feelings if you hope to join the friendly skies of sport flying. This flight guide shows you how to make the smartest decision for you.
