Wow wish mine had 9 hour legs in it!!If the market stays really hot I will consider selling mine after this season. I was thinking about it recently but it turns out my wife doesn't want me to sell it. Who would have thought that would happen? I suppose all those stories about passengers on commercial airlines attacking flight attendants finally got to her. That and the the flying with the dog on her lap.
We'll see how it goes after the 9 hour flight one-way next week.
Wow wish mine had 9 hour legs in it!!
My flying-hesitant wife and I made several 4+ hr per leg flights last week (two per day) in and out of IMC, and she actually enjoyed it! It didn't hurt that we were at 10k' and the clouds were often below us. The ride on the first two legs was as smooth as glass, but the second two were actually ranging from light chop to some "interesting" bumps when we were in the tops of the lower layer. Altitude was limited by freezing levels in the Northeast because of the oddly cold temperatures and persistent rain and clouds in the Albany area. All very good! First long flight with the new GNX 375 GPS + GI 275 HSI+AP coupled with a legacy Century 21 AP. Very nice combo!
1977 PIPER TURBO ARROW III Single Engine Piston for sale - 2394424
$189k for a Turbo Arrow
$20k price drop since Saturday...avionics package is nice and the motor is low time, but $169k is getting awfully close to Cirrus money and a plane that is 30 years newer. If you're financing the plane, another $200 per month isn't a deal breaker and you get a newer and faster plane.I saw that. Pure insanity. I couldnt even get anyone to return my calls anymore when I was still looking. I am resigned to no more flying at this point.
