I am new to COPA, but I have been interested in the Cirrus aircraft since my wife obtained her private pilots license. She is on her way to getting an Instrument Rating and after that we hope to have some sort of personal aircraft to take trips in. Since I’m the finance guy in the family, I was wondering if any of you have had experience with fractional ownership programs for general aviation aircraft. There seem to be a few out there and, being new, I was not sure if the costs involved in fractional ownership outweigh the benefits versus starting a partnership. Any advice or personal experiences would be appreciated.
