    Purchase question.

    Pre-purchase inspection.

    Varies, but $8k might be a ballpark average.

    Pre-purchase inspection.

    Do yourself a giant favor and hire Savvy Aviation to manage your pre-buy on the Cirrus. Just went through this myself earlier this year and you don’t want to be on your own on this one. Also, don’t do an annual until you actually own the plane. Doing an annual instead of a pre-buy is not...

    How to perfect rudder work in the last 10 feet?

    Wet/Dry Lease Question

    Yes. They were leasing it to flight school so they would likely be interested in this if they continue to own the plane.

    Hypothetical Plane Purchase Scenario

    Based on these numbers Bill can not afford a new SR22. Better stated, he should not afford one, if unless he is financially foolish. Bill should get a used SR22 G2 or G3 model for the best value. With Bill’s salary and only. $1.3mm saved up, he’d better prioritize retirement savings.
