An Economics Lesson
      12/23/17 06:40 PM Attachment (95 downloads)

I've long deflected inquiries regarding the cost of aircraft ownership by jokey answers like: "I don't do that calculation, because I simply don't want to know..."

So here's the calculation for the ownership of my '68 Piper Arrow for the past year:

Nov 2016 Annual: $2400

One year hangar rental $2700

Inst. Comp. Check $ 400

Physical Exam $ 125

Static & xpdr Check $ 485

Nov 2017 Annual $4800

TOTAL $10,910

HOURS FLOWN 3.5

UNIT COST $ 3117.14/HOUR

I know, I know, counting two annuals is cheating, but, hey, it's my story. Anyhow, the punchline is that yesterday, the wire transfer arrived and Arrow 3730T is about to start its journey to its new home in Ecuador
