Should Know About Buying This Classic...
If you are looking to fly a piece of American History, your going to want make sure you look seriously at the Boeing Stearman PT-17. It is a great biplane that was built in the 1930's & 1940's. And surprisingly - there are a good amount on the used market if you are looking for one to buy!
IMPORTANT: In this article were going to be talking about the PT-17. You have to realize that there are quite a few different versions of the Boeing-Stearman Model 75. So make sure you are looking at the right one. You don't want to buy the wrong one as it could cost you a lot of wasted time and potential money.
Here's Two Things You Should Know About Buying The
Boeing Stearman PT-17...
First - They Are Priced Very Reasonably On The Used Market...
The great thing about buying one of these airplanes is the fact that you are not only buying an airplane to fly around for recreational purposes, but your buying a piece of American History... That is a pretty big deal as this airplane is a real neck turner when you fly it into an airport.
The great thing about it is the fact that Boeing is not making more of these airplanes. They were made in the 1930's and 1940's. That means as time goes on, there will be less and less of them in flying condition as people crash them, don't take care of them, exc.
So chances are pretty good that if you get one and take care of it - you should be able to do good on it financially. Obviously you should not buy one as your primary retirement plan, but if you are going to buy an airplane anyway - why not get a model that has some chance of holding its value?
As far as a price goes, depending on the current market - you should be able to get one that is in flying condition for under $100,000 USD. The great thing is - unlike modern airplanes, your not going to have to spend a fortune in digital equipment and expensive GPS systems. The PT-17 is pretty simple...
Second - They Have A LOT Of Power...
This airplane is not going to go 200 knots... But that is really not what it was designed for either. If you want power, this has it! Most current models will have a Continental R-670-5, seven cylinder radial engine that puts out about 220 hp.
Reported cruise speeds are around 85 knots... But again, that really all depends on how your flying it and what your using it for. But the bottom line is that this is a great airplane if you are looking for something to fly around for recreational purposes.
