Left Coast Pilot: Time to Change Planes? 05-05Written by John Ruley
I have a decision to make, which is keeping me from sleep at the moment. For the past six months, I’ve been trying to find a partner for N16460—or sell it outright. I’ve had several calls, but nothing too serious until just this past week.
In the space of three days, two fellows came to see the airplane. The first was mainly interested in partnering. The other fellow called first thing in the morning wanting to talk to me about buying it outright.
I’m looking for a partner (or to sell outright) because N16460, my Arrow, has turned out to be more expensive than I bargained for—considerably so. My first two airplanes were fixed-gear singles, and relatively cheap to operate.
