How long are you going to keep it?

20 or 30 years from now, Beechcraft will still be around in some form & you will still be able to buy parts. Columbia is less certain.

If you are only going to keep it for 5 or 8 years, this is much less of a problem.

For example, I have a 1965 Beechcraft Debonair; bought it in 1995. I have been able to buy landing gear parts, fairings that cracked, engine baffling, seat belt shoulder harness retrofits, and numerous other odd ball stuff with very few problems. I really think that some of these new manufacturers (Columbia, Cirrus) are not building into their cost model the engineering and parts support required to still be able to offer parts 30-40 years later.

Just my opinion.
