This is true which is why you might want to investigate one of the lesser advertised methods of ownership - A flying club or fractional/equity ownership. You pay a fraction of the cost of owning a plane, have reasonably good availability/flexibility in scheduling and can continue training toward more certificates or ratings while you fly. Something like a Cessna 182 is not fast but it's solid, will get where you want to go and is quite versatile.6. Currently rent and no one around here really wants to rent their planes out for a week at the time without a stiff minimum number of hours. I've tried it and it really is not practical.
