The Cost Of Buying A Cessna Aircraft
Chances are pretty good that if you are going to buy a Cessna aircraft you are going to want to know how much it is going to cost you! (-: That is why I want to give you a cost estimate for some of the popular Cessna single engine airplanes that you can buy.
The price you pay for your Cessna is going to vary a lot depending on a lot of factors that you should take into consideration. You are going to want to make sure you don't make the mistake of simply trying to buy the "cheapest" one because it is cheap! A lot of airplane owners make this mistake and think they are getting a good deal.
It is like buying a house - you can buy the cheapest house you can find, but you usually pay for that discount. The same thing is true when you are buying a Cessna For Sale. Sure you can get one for cheap, but if you buy a junker - your not going to be able to resell it for what you expect & you could end up getting yourself into mechanical trouble while you are flying it.
So, make sure you look at the total time of the aircraft, the time left before the engine overhaul, avionics that it has & the structure of the aircraft. Those are a few of the main things that you are going to want to make sure you pay attention to when you are buying one.
I want to give you some ball park "averages" in terms of costs to buy one. You can see the break downs below:
Cessna 150 - Your going to pay around $20,000 USD for this aircraft if you find a good
Cessna 150 For Sale - Obviously, you are going to be able to spend a lot more then $20,000 on a 150, but you might be able to get one for less as well. You have to make sure you look at all the factors. But $20k is a pretty good deal for an airplane! You can spend that on a motorcycle, boat or even a used car!
Cessna 152 - If you want to get your hands on a 150, your going to want to budget around $35,000 USD to get one that is in somewhat good shape. The problem with finding a good
Cessna 152 For Sale is that a lot of them have high total times on them due to the fact they are used as trainers for flight schools. So make sure you stay away from those unless you really know what you are doing...
Cessna 170 - The 170 is pretty much a 4 seater version of the 150. It is a great little aircraft and because of the fact that it is so popular, you are going to have a really tough time getting your hands on one! Chances are pretty good that you are going to want to budget around $45,000 USD for a good Cessna 170 For Sale
Cessna 172 - The 172 is one of the most popular single engine aircraft that Cessna has and for a late model version you are going to want to budget around $45,000 to get a Cessna 172 For Sale You can go a lot higher, but you don't want to go to much lower as you are really want to get a good one. At times there are a lot of 172's on the market, so you want to make sure that you buy a good one so you can resell it for good money if you ever have to.
