A sampling of quotes from this first webinar.
“Buying (an airplane) is not as hard as dealing with it in the first few years. It expensive enough buying a 40 or 50 year old airplane. Those first few years are even more challenging.” -Scott Sherer
“In the last three years of aircraft ownership, a lot of people stop maintaining their aircraft. And that creates a problem. I would always recommend getting a pre-purchase inspection. And you can’t do it with the mechanic who’s already maintaining the airplane. You can’t go to a mechanic who you both know. You need to go to somebody who’s trained in that model of aircraft but has not seen it before.” -Scott Sherer
“Fuel is going to be biggest expense. We ran about 83% of our expense being fuel, and that was through two engine cycles.” -Jim Griffin
“Be prepared to spend 25% of the cost of purchasing your plane on maintenance. -Scott Sherer
