  3. 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.
