Hi All: I'm a fairly new pilot, 120 hours training in Bay Area flying. Should have my PPL finished before EOM after the (4th rescheduling) of the checkride. Everything from weather, location, DPE availability, and mechanical have made that experience fun. Going to start on my instrument rating immediately. I'm considering a relocation to Portland with work that would take me into KPAO a few times a month. It would be fun and educational to make that flight in a plane that I own instead of using the airlines. It's roughly 490nm if you take a safe VFR route or 460nm with a high altitude IFR route. I'd expect most of the flights would be under IFR. I'd like to gather various ideas on planes that I could purchase that would make this mission enjoyable. It would usually be 1-2 passengers, maybe the occasional 3rd. A little bit of light baggage. Trying to keep total flight time ~3 hours would be ideal. The plane would be hangared in the Portland area. Access to a good mechanic or service center with experience on the make/model would be ideal. Overall total cost of purchase - probably <$400,000. I'm a bit indifferent on the total operating cost per hour or how old the plane is. Creature comforts are not as important as good avionics. Been looking at Cirrus SR22, Apache Arrow IV Turbo, Cessna 182 Turbo, Mooney Acclaim. Are there others that y'all think I should take a look into? Thanks for any advice!
