I dunno. I feel like I got mine pretty reasonably for $6K all-in back in 2008 with 41 hours total time. Basically $4.5K for aircraft, $1K for instructor, and $0.5K worth of pilot gear. The C172R was around $110/hr wet, CFI was $30-$35.You true crudgeons need to give us a point of reference with these absurdly cheap wet rate quotes. How much was a conestoga wagon, shirt of chain mail, or ampule of Doc Harlan's Chilblain Serum then?
$400 in 1965 is almost 4 grand. I'd like to think a determined person could find a way to get PPL on 4 grand. A flying club maybe?
