Synopses & Reviews
Following a brief history of the market for private aircraft, this illustrated guide helps potential buyers assess their needs based on factors like the pilot's abilities, budget, applications, planned travel distances, passenger capacity and speed. Then a wealth of tips are provided for evaluating a possible purchase based on airframe and engine hours, the time between overhauls, corrosion, replaced parts, engine type, avionics and cosmetics. Advice is even provided for finding an inspector, obtaining insurance and finally closing the deal on the chosen aircraft. The final two-thirds of the book examine dozens of models from manufacturers like Cessna, Piper, Beechcraft and more. All the aircraft discussed are illustrated and accompanied by photo illustrations.
