Anybody seen the price of small planes ?
I was Gob smacked
My old boss had a small plane. Convenient, but the cost of the plane is just the tip of the iceberg. They do have them used. New planes cost so much due to the manufacturers having so much liability insurance. But then the airplane owner also has to pay insurance, annual inspections(if you think an MOT is bad....)hangar fees, airport fees, fuel, repairs, tie down fees where you land. In the 1960's, my Dad knew several people who had planes. I now know no one who has his own plane. We used to have a lot of small plane builders over here in the States. Now it's just down to Beechcraft and Piper.
Ive got a wood plane, it's cheap and easy to use.. Cant see what the fuss is about...
Nice weather forecast for the week and a warm Easter break.
Son in law has finally bought a new bike, i predict lots of cycling next weekend.
This small and yes others are available etc etc
Do you mean one of these?
Which sort ? For flying or for planing wood ?
That's the one, £18.99 from hobby craft
Oh ! That sort !
That vet chappy, Mark whathisname built a kit plane. Built the plane , learnt to fly all within the programmes.

I think my wife may have sussed out there is a new bike on the way, as some idiot left the Charge Ladle ladies saddle in the boot of my car - doh.
Better that than thinking something else !
