PA28-161 Operating Cost

Apr 1, 2019
Reaction score
Fellow PA28 owners,

Does anyone of you have a PA28 operating cost calculator (like an excel spreadsheet, etc.)? I am considering leasing the plane to a couple of pilot friends and I would like to make sure the cost I set makes sense.

The plane is based in NorCal, and the shop rate in the area is about $130 an hour.
