Aircraft Ownership
101

AHhhhhh.. the dream of owning your own aircraft. Free to fly any time without booking and paying those aircraft hire rates. Pop down to the hangar, clean the windscreen and blast off, enjoying the freedom that is aviation, put her back in the hangar and home by Lunch.

Living the dream!!
If you think this is the reality or aircraft ownership, I would suggest keep renting.


Insurance, Maintenance, Airworthiness Directives, Parts, Hangerage, Aging Aircraft. The responsible aircraft owner has a handle on all these and many more necessary components of aircraft ownership and airworthiness. Depending upon how much you fly, it may be less expensive to continue renting, but you cant take away that “I own an aeroplane” feeling.


This ½ Day course will delve into what is legally required of an aircraft owner, what it is likely to cost and how to prepare, forecast and manage aircraft continuing airworthiness. Everything from the selection process, the pre-buy and how to avoid common pitfalls of owning your own aircraft.
