The Golden Rules

The Golden Rules (of used aircraft purchase):

  • 1. Set A Budget and Stick To It.
  • 2. More Is better (the more models built, the better off you will be).
  • 3. Be Patient (time is on your side).
  • 4. Don't Fall In Love with any plane you don't already own.
  • 5. Do your homework BEFORE you buy (become familiar with it and know the value).
  • 6. Pay Attention To The Paperwork (it will bite you if you don't).
  • 7. Join Pilot Organizations (before you buy).
