    A parallel valve IO-540 in my Arrow..and tip tanks. Essentially a Comanche without the hassle of owning one. :D

    Not to mention the TBM-900 is 45 knots faster than the PC-12!

    You have it all figured out. :D

    Garmin GTN-650/750 so I can train for my instrument rating in our own airplane.

    an IFR slot at OSH, my god it's so painful when you need to be there for work and each 15 min slot books within < 2 secs from the time it becomes available.

    What hassle?

    Spent time around both airframes and the PA24 seemed to be the more simplistic and easy plane mx wise, also spent less time in the shop.

    Lol, don't know how I screwed that one up, I meant to say the Pa24 was easier on the MX in my experience

    Not heated but in Georgia I've had a $175 T-hangar and currently a larger $250 T-hanger that allows 2 planes to fit in. Everything is cheaper in the southeast.

    My unheated T-hangar in WV was $125; moving to Alabama, the hangar was newer and $235.

    On the other hand, fuel here is $3.35 vs. $5.60 up there . . . .

    Build and fly a Sonex Onex. It'd be my own little fighter plane.

    No, just a Staggerwing. But there aren't many left, so a nice biplane would suffice.

    We're always supposed to have a Plan B, right? :cool:

    Thanks for the feedback. My buddy is starting a maintenance shop and your input will help me do some product give-a-ways sometime soon. If you care to keep an eye out for one, follow his company on Facebook. Just search for Mobile Aviation Maintenance through FB.

    What part of the country are you In? Mobile is fairly close to me, but I suspect you meant "mobile" and won't drive all the way to Lower Alabama to work on my plane . . .

    His business is based at KMOB. We deal with that confusion all the time here. For us, Mobile is just our town. But for the rest of the county, mobile just means you are able to be moved easily... He's just getting started but feel free to give him a ring to discuss your needs. John Baumgarten - 251-656-2712
