One of the difficult things about flying is that it tends to be a relatively expensive hobby. Would you be and/or do you think there would be interest in a low cost flying club based around something like a MiniMax, Fisher FPXXX, Flybaby, etc. Many planes like this can be purchased for <$10,000 in good shape (there isn't a resale market for single seaters). In my mind the ideal situation would be a group of 10 people to buy into the club for $1,000/person. Assume $5000 engine replacement/overhaul at 1000 hours ($5/hr for the engine) Fuel burn 3 gal/hr (mogas = $9max) Assume annual of $1000 ($100/person) Hangar rental for our little wooden airplane ($600/month = $60/person/month) Add in an extra $6/hr for reserve when something unexpected happens. This could result in flying being available for @20 hrs/year --> $70/hr ($61 yearly cost) @50 hrs/year --> $40/hr ($2000 yearly cost) +insurance costs. I'm not sure what these are on single seaters. No you couldn't take a passenger with you, but for just getting up in the air for a sunset flight after work, it could be a great solution. Heck, even if you already have another plane, the cost is so low it may be worth joining to have something small and fun to fly. It could also be a great way to build time if you need it for some reason. Would anyone in central Connecticut be interested in such an arrangement?
