    The plane is probably affordable................. it's the

    insurance,
    maintenance,
    repairs from the ground loops one will make,
    annual inspections,
    instrument overhauls.....
    ad infinitum.

    Here in Europe a light bulb for a normal household will cost you 2 euros.
    The very same bulb, but certified to be installed in a boat, will cost you 20 euros.

    Use a regular bulb, and keep a few spares in the plane. Kidding.

    like here..everything has to be "certified" for use in ac. my dad had a piper that needed an alternator. we owned an autoparts store at that time and we had the exact same part sitting on the shelf but couldnt use it because it wasnt approved/certified. So, like you said he had to purchase one through an aircraft supply company for 10 times the price.

    Sorry, I have to figure out how to get email notification when someone replies to my posts.

    The JUST REDUCED current price is: $43,500. Just in time for the 2014 Air Show Circuit.

    Thanks for the interest to all.

    Grass Valley eh? I wonder if my friend Jim Moser did the graphics. He's a sign painter up there.

    It's a beauty plane.
