Hello all, I'm brand spankin' new to this forum, but I already love the content. I had a question that I'd like some insight on. I'm a fairly new pilot - 120 hours almost IFR Certified - and I've saved about $15k to buy a plane. I would prefer not to finance, so I will continue to save if I need to, but what I'd like is a 4 seater single engine, low wing plane. I can live with a 2 seater, but I have an infant and a dog I'd like to bring on trips. My dog isn't the best baby sitter... Anyway, I'd love to build my own plane for the experience and to have that intimate knowledge of my own aircraft, but I'm well aware of the amount of time and money that will take. I'd like to perform my own maintenance as well. That being said, what are my best options, both Experimental and Certified, in the $20k-$25k range, if I have any... Should I just save more? I occasionally come across a little Cesna or random experimental on craigslist for $15-$25k, so I know I'm not too far off! Thank you in advance for all your input fellas!
