I'm currently in flight training. Since I one day hope to own a twin piston aircraft EX: Cessna 310, I've started to wonder how I could help pay for that or for other types of planes that can cost considerable amounts in running costs. My question is, what have you had to do to afford flying? Have you had to make sacrifices when it comes to other toys or housing? Have you started a side business to fund your flying? What career path are you in that's enabled you to have your own personal plane? Etc. Edit: Please mention the type of plane you own. I'd also be especially interested about how if anyone on here has personal planes that cost them 80k+. Disclaimer: I know about partial ownership options, but for the sake of this post, please only talk about how you've afforded to completely own your own plane.
