Best Single Engine Aircraft - Simple Strategies
For Finding The Right Aircraft
If your going to buy a single engine aircraft you are going to want to make sure you buy the best one possible. That is a good idea - but can be somewhat hard to actually make happen. That said, your going to want to make sure you do get the best one possible as you not going to want to buy some junker that you have to keep fixing all the time that causes you nothing but problems.
And if you are buying your first aircraft, you want to make sure you do it right - that way you don't have to deal with the issue of selling it and rebuying something else after 50 hours of flying. Not only that, if you buy the wrong one - you could lose your shirt (financially) in trying to get rid of it so you can get the right one.
2 Surprisingly Simple Strategies Every Pilot Should Know To Find
The Best Single Engine Aircraft Possible
First - Do THIS Before You Buy An Airplane
What your going to want to do is rent a few different models before you decide on the right aircraft. If you have only ever flown in the aircraft that you did your training on, then you only know one airplane. You may like other airplanes, but the bottom line is that you only have flying experience in one or maybe two different types of aircraft.
This is very important and you have to make sure you take this step seriously. A lot of pilots are thinking about buying an aircraft because they don't want to rent one. That is a good long term strategy, but when you are looking for one to buy you might want to seriously consider renting a few first.
The reason that you want to do this is because if you can get a few hours on 4 or 5 different types of airplanes, your going to get a really good indication of the type of aircraft that you should buy. And not only that - your going to have real flying experience to go from in terms of figuring out which one is going to be best.
You won't have to rely on 3 party opinions to tell you which airplane is going to be the best. You'll be able to know from the flying experience that you got from the 4-5 different airplanes.
This Might Even Work Better
If you can't rent a few different models, then just go up with a flight instructor who is insured on the airplanes that you want to fly. That might almost be better as you will be able to do more with the airplane as you have an instructor with you. Not only that, you should be able to log the hours as well. So - that way, all is not lost.
If you live near a big city or in one, the chances are really good that there is going to be a number of flying schools or flight clubs in your area. That way you can travel around to a few of them and do some test flights on the airplanes that they have.
Now - your not going to need to spend a fortune doing this - but you want to at least get an hour in on each of the airplane types that you are thinking about buying. That way you can get a good feel for each model. Also, the flight instructors are going to give you a lot of good feedback on the airplane your flying with them as they probably have a lot of hours on it.
Second - Figure Out What Is Priority #1
The reason that you need to do this is because there are a lot of factors that can go into figuring out which is the right airplane for your situation and you need to figure out which metric is the #1 metric for deciding the airplane you should buy.
You can look at it about 200 different ways and you are going to have to figure out if speed is the number one priority, carrying capacity, seating, exc. Once you figure this out, all the other metrics can line up behind it. And when you go through this exercise, you might surprise yourself and find a different airplane that becomes your "best".
Also, once you do this exercise and figure out what is the #1 priority for your flying needs and airplane - your going to give yourself a bulls-eye in terms of what you are looking for and want in an aircraft. This should help you from second guessing yourself all the time about what you really want and need.
