HOLY COW!!!

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

Really, you disagree with me on subjects because of your perception of my political view? What are you basing that on? To the best of my knowledge I have never made a political statement on this or any forum.

It seems to me, there should be a segment of the population that is somewhere between that could afford, and would want a modern air frame, low cost engine, and low cost avionics so they could buy new instead of used. I would be happy with a SkyCatcher air frame, Rotax 100 HP carbureted engine, basic round gauges, one comm radio, transponder, all for $70,000.


There are options for 70-80-90 K range out there.

This guys is offering decently equipped high wing with 100 HP Rotax ULS. The deal he is offering is pretty much what you just described - no options, basic round gauges etc ... in fact when I was talking to him , he wouldn't even consider upgrading PS Engineering PM 1000 to the stereo version ( let alone adding auto-pilots etc)
From what I heard his business is doing pretty well.

Foxbat is another one. With Denis, you can upgrade your plane all the way to 100 K but it starts pretty low with basic options.
Again, very well made ( I think there are close to 1000 flying out there ) metal plane with 100 HP Rotax ULS.
