I’m still on the fence about putting down that deposit money. Having only recently become a pilot I’m slow in deciding whether this is indeed the right choice for one’s first airplane purchase, not to mention having the patience to wait 2+ years to enjoy the decision. From what I’ve read, I’m very impressed; short of dreaming of owning and flying a jet, I can’t help but think that this is indeed my kind of plane. The price-performance reminds me of how I was similarly impressed when I decided on buying an MR2 Turbo (okay, it wasn’t a plane, but for the money, it was quite an exceptional sports car) particularly relative to others on the market.
I’m located in the Boston area and fly out of Bedford (Hanscom Field). I’d like to know if there is anyone else in this area that may be interested in partnering on an SR20? I suspect I’d probably fly only about 10-20 hours a month, at least until I got my IFR rating. I can best be reached by email.
