Cessna 150 - Is It Still Worth Buying In Light Of
All The New Competition?
The Cessna 150 is the next generation version of the 140 which ceased production in the 1950’s. It is the tricycle gear version of the 140, plus a few extra changes to make it even better.
One of the best features about the Cessna 150 is the fact that it is a head turner. A lot of pilots trained on 150's and still have an attachment to them. It has been almost 20 years since I did my training and I still have an attachment to the airplane that I trained on.
Not sure why... But I guess it is because it was your first experience with flying and it was the airplane that got you into it. But because of this factor, a lot of pilots still really like this airplane and they go on to buy them after training on them.
In this article I want to show you what you need to know about this amazing little airplane before you buy one for yourself.
2 Important & Compelling Things You Should
Know About The Cessna 150
#1 - This Aircraft Has No Real Direct Competition:
When it comes to finding an airplane that will directly compare with the Cessna 150, you have to realize that you are going to have to look really hard to find one! The great thing about owning a Cessna 150 is that they are truly in a class of their own.
Sure you can compare it to the Piper Tomahawk, but you then have to make sure you realize that there were only around 2,000 of them built to the Cessna 150’s 23,000 (roughly).
If ten times the amount of pilots decided to get new 150’s verses new Tomahawk’s, you are going to have to realize that the 150 is probably going to be better overall. And that is not to say other airplanes are not as good. It is just that over time, a lot more pilots purchased new 150's verses other models that were on the market at the time.
What About The Light Sport Aircraft Movement?
That is the interesting thing about the Cessna 150... There are a few factors that make it very attractive in light of the fact that the LSA movement has exploded on the scene over the last few years.
The bottom line is that if you plan on getting a new or newer LSA, your going to be paying close to $100k USD. That's fine if that is your budget and what you had planned on spending.
But if you only want to spend around $20k, then most of the LSA airplanes are not even an opiton. Most pilots are not even thinking about the fact that they could spend $100k on an LSA or $20k on a Cessna 150. Your budget is either one or the other as that is a pretty big spread in terms of finances.
So essentially, it is like comparing "apples to oranges"! Both types of airplanes are 2 seaters, but they are totally different in terms of what you are getting. With an LSA your getting the newest technology & with the 150 your getting a classic bird that has great fundamentals.
#2 - There Should Always Be A Market For This Aircraft:
This is important because when you buy an airplane you are going to want to make sure you get one that is popular so you have a good choice of inventory to choose from. Not only that, someday when you sell your 150 you are going to want to make sure there is still interest in it.
One of the biggest reasons for the fact that there should always be a market for this aircraft is because it is a trainer. And like we talked about, people like to buy airplanes that they train on. Not every pilot is going to buy a 150 simply because they trained on it, but if a pilot is in the market for a 2 seater, there is a good chance that they will consider the 150.
And that is a big reason why this airplane should be popular as long as flight schools are using them as trainers. As long as pilots are getting experience on them, they are going to be interested in buying them for their own flying.
Not only that, the 150 is really a classic. It's been around for decades and has stood the test of time. And a lot of pilots see this great aircraft as more then just a plane.
The great thing about the 150 is the fact that as long as fuel prices keep going up, this airplane is probably going to keep increasing in popularity!
