This would be my first airplane. I went to see it. But couldn't fly it because the PFD has a fault and is being serviced by Dynon so they pulled it out and are in the process of fixing that. Visually, it looks good overall. Some things that I would need to fix that I would work into the amount I offer for it. But my real question is: I, of course, need to have a pre-buy inspection done. The owner has no issue with that and even said they would take all the panels off for the inspector to save them the work. But I don't even know where to begin in terms of selecting someone to do the pre-buy. Any recommendations? It's a Tecnam. The plane is based near Orlando. Second of all, how do I "reserve" the plane until the pre-buy is complete? Do I make an offer now contingent upon a clean pre-buy inspection and pay them a small deposit now to take it off the market for me until the pre-buy is complete? It seems like COVID has pushed everything back and my guess is it will probably be a couple of weeks before a pre-buy can even be done. What's a normal deposit amount on a plane, and I'm assuming it's customary that it's fully refundable if the pre-buy then reveals any surprises? Any guidance on next steps would be appreciated. It seems like there's going to be a huge amount of time between now and all the boxes being checked/ready to handover the check and I'm wondering what the prudent steps are to ensure that another buyer doesn't swoop in and either beat me to completing all of this due-diligence (or perhaps another buyer just forgoes all of the due-diligence entirely). Pre-buy inspection needs to be done primarily, then if they accept my offered price I would go there again to fly it, and assuming I love how it flies (I'm confident I will so long as everything functions nominally), I would begin escrow on it. That brings up another question: during the pre-buy inspector, does the inspector take the plane for a test flight? I would hope so because I'd want confirmation that the avionics and AP work 100%. Just like during a ground inspection there are probably a dozen things I wouldn't even know to look for, there are almost certainly functions and features of the avionics that I wouldn't immediately go to use during my first flight and wouldn't want the surprise of something not working later on. So I'm hoping a pre-buy normally includes the inspector taking a test flight and testing 100% of the functions of all of the avionics. Again, brand new to this so be gentle. Appreciate any and all suggestions. I'm learning here! Thanks in advance!
