Get your hands on one of the hottest aircraft on the general aviation market! How? Bill Clarke knows how. By buying a used airplane! Here they are-all the latest and greatest models, plus the oldies but goodies. Over 100 airplanes are profiled in this complete illustrated guide to used airplanes, fully updated for the fourth edition. Clarke gives you all the info you need to comparison-shop and make a great deal for the bird of your dreams-without getting burned! Step-by-step, Clarke takes you through the process of becoming the owner of your own plane: prospecting the market; determining a plane's true value; closing the deal; "hangar-flying" the plane; deciding whether to have a partner-owner. An appendix has an up-to-date listing of typical used airplane selling prices. Negotiating a good price can be difficult-so Clarke has also provided a fully tested financial formula to calculate the best possible purchase price. But the Buyer's Guide doesn't stop there. It also covers what to do when you bring the airplane home: how to get the right insurance coverage... maintaining and storing your plane... where to go for repairs and parts... FAA Airworthiness Directives for specific aircraft and how to meet them. In an age when the world's most popular 4-seat airplane has been priced out of existence, and top-of-the-line planes' stickers are floating toward the half million mark, buying a good used aiplane is the smart alternative.About the Author:
