I'm looking at buying a used family aircraft within the next 2 years. In starting my research I set out my requirements as follows: 1. Carry 4 adults plus weekend baggage 2. Piston powered. 3. Easy maintenance/ good parts availability. (I'm an A&P) 4. IFR grade panel/equipment 5. Max price point about $50k I started looking at C172/180s but I didn't like what I saw in equipment and pricing. After looking at 206s, 182s, archers, ect. I figured I'd see what light twins were going for. I was shocked to find that I could get a better equipped 310 for the same price point of a 172/180 or a 182. I would post links to controller or trade-a-plane of examples, but this is my first post. Can anyone explain to me why I can buy a loaded 60's-70's 310 for the same price as a VFR or barely IFR 60's-70's 172?
