Hello all. I saw the contest being sponsored by Your Jet Life and Angel Flight Australia for the new SR22 G6, and was curious to know what the cost might be to ferry the airplane back to the US? Is there a ballpark guide for something like this?
Very rough ballpark.
$5k to install a ferry tank
60-70 hours of flight time (+ 3 oil changes + lots of AvGas)
Ferry pilot time (14 days @ $1000 a day = $14k)
But if you win the contest, I guess that is a small price to pay !
50-60k would be my guess
I sold a TB20 15yrs ago to a buyer in Australia. He paid $20k then to have a company do the pre-buy and fly it to Perth. I took the ferry pilot to dinner after the initial pre-buy. He was a very interesting gent. Lots of crazy stories
Why does my last post need to be “approved” by a Moderator?
All posts in the guest discussion need approval. We try to approve them quickly but sometimes we get busy.
The reason for the approval process is two fold.

- The Guest Discussion is searchable on google.
Almost all posts are approved.
I’m not a Guest. That’s where my confusion originated.
The rule applies to the Guest Discussion category, and not only guests, but rather any post made in this category.
Ok…that makes sense- thanks
yeah one of my clients bought an Australian based SR22 NA and had it ferried back. I think he told me it was $50K+ incidentals. He went through American Samoa and had some issues getting fuel there. Then he had some issues waiting for winds to make the crossing from HI to Cali. Good luck sounds like an awesome adventure!
