    I've wanted a Bellanca Super Viking since I discovered flying as a serious option in my life. It's been 8 months of shopping and now I have one. Lucky me, it is based in my town.

    I lined up a CFI who can check me out in it and train me for my high performance and complex ratings.

    Yeah baby.

    Once I organize the hangar and all that jazz there will be a couch in there.

    That is an awful, dreadful example of an airplane. I will fly it to the junk yard for you. Just give me the keys. And the logbooks. And sign the registration form over to me. I'll take care of everything.

    I wont insure it until I obtain the hours they demand first. They want 10 hours with instructor and 10 hours solo before theyll insure it.

    I can get that done in a few weeks.

    I think this is different than what I'm asking though.....you had insurance when u bought the plane, no? the 25 hours was just a requirement before u could carry pax. I'm asking the OP if he was able to get ANY insurance on a complex/hp plane WITHOUT a comp/hp endorsement. and I think what he's saying is he bought the plane and is going to fly it with no insurance.

    That's taking quite a risk. I'd insure it now. Granted, you won't be covered if you cheat and fly it solo without meeting their requirements which is probably so many hours with a CFI who has so many hours in model. I certainly wouldn't take the risk having it uninsured just so you can delay making your first premium payment for a few weeks

    That's what he said.

    "I wont insure it until I obtain the hours they demand first. They want 10 hours with instructor and 10 hours solo before theyll insure it. I can get that done in a few weeks." Them not insuring it at all until he has 10 hours solo doesn't pass the logic check. I think it's probably 10 solo before he can have pax. Check on that @Daniel L

    I definitely wont go without insurance if I dont have to.

    I had insurance that covered the plane as long as I was getting 25 hrs dual instruction. I couldn’t solo or carry passengers w/o the 25 hrs first. I didn’t have a complex prior to buying the 210.

    Daniel, your plane is a beauty... even it it's not of the triple-tail variety. Please plan on a trip to KSBP and I will buy you lunch!

    Super Vikings have a place in my heart. I almost bought one last year but I fell on a mint V35B Bonanza that I have full access to. I decided I don't need a super Viking if I have a Doctor Killer in my hangar.
