I can feel one of my turns coming on, where owning an all-metal Luscombe 8A with no electrical system begins to sound like a good idea. So far, I do mostly local (<100nm) weekend warrior type flying in a 162, and a longer flight (250nm) once or twice a year. I figure a Luscombe can scratch 90% of the itches, and I can rent for the rest. I already have my tw endorsement but I have no time in type and would need a refresher. My family currently does not fly with me, and I'm not assuming that that will change. The list of pros as I see them: * Can be flown under light sport rules = hedge against medical reform regulatory uncertainty * No engine-driven electrical system = no ads-b requirement, modulo airspace limitations * Cheap to fly * Hopefully cheap annuals * Hopefully cheap to insure * Can be purchased for around $20k I understand that the A65 may be hard to get parts for. Any other gotchas? I probably do not fly enough hours/year to justify ownership rationally at this point, or even a partnership, but as Dr. Gustave Whitehead said regarding time travel, "What the hell".
