The Illustrated Buyer's Guide to Used Airplanes does far more than help you get the right plane at the right price.  This book shows you how to figure the complete costs (and potential profits) of airplane ownership.  And it provides help with every step, from sizing up planes, to doing the deal, to post-purchase priorities.

The best way for private pilots with limited means to obtain the plane of their dreams is to purchase a used one -- and there's no better way to buy one without getting burned than this heavily illustrated guide. Focusing on airplanes priced at $100,000 or less, the author walks readers through the entire process of purchasing a used plane: prospecting the market, determining a plane's true value, closing the deal, partnership, and much more.

A book that can save you thousands of dollars, pilot Bill Clarke's much-respected Illustrated Buyer's Guide to Used Airplanes is the source that thousands of pilots turn to when the time comes to buy a plane.  It's the only guide to airplane ownership that you'll ever need.

Good Basic Info - Could use and update

  • By John from Draper UT USA on Monday, March 21, 2011
  • Pros: Good Level setting book
  • Review: This book as decent but didn't go as deep on various financial aspects as I would have liked. I would have liked to see some deeper financial examples and pros/cons.
