Possible partnership in CT Goodspeed

Postby Atrosa » Fri Sep 13, 2019 3:15 pm

I'm floating the possibility of starting a partnership in CT at Goodspeed airport. Here are the particulars:

Goodspeed 42B: available hangers at about 350 per month.
No fuel which is fine because it will resist the temptation of using 100LL sludge.

The Plane: Either sportcruiser or GOBOSH. About 50k so 25k each.

We will figure out the per hour leaving enough for reserve and incidentals.

Scheduling: I only want 1 partner. I will mainly fly during the week so rarely fly weekend.

If your a jerk or sloppy don't bother. If you want to skip maintainance or SBs don't bother. If you slap it down hard and quietly put it away .... You guessed it dont bother. I don't care if you break it just man up. I also don't care if you are a man or woman or undecided. Just not a jerk. This is only possible if we get along. I don't need a partner but i will with the right person.

PM me if interested.
Tony

Usually, partnerships work better when they decide those things together.

Right but if they want a carbon cub or know that they will stretch maintainance than why not discuss it now.

I'm just saying it might be easier to find potential partners if you approach it with an open mind.

I'm open to it, Godspeed is a bit of a distance, but willing to consider for the right deal.

There might be a better place half-way between.

Tim,
where are you located? I'm originally from Appleton and uncle instructed out of Shiocton but moved to Mercer. Unfortunately he teaches PPL and I have to limit to Spl due to medical issues.

We can agree to disagree. I've never been divorced and I'm married 23 years because I was upfront prior to our partnership. I didn't jump into it hoping we were on the same page. We have the same goals and outlook on life. Once in the partnership there will be compromise but if they want a Remos or CTLS why bother?

I've been married 51 years. Together 4 1/2 years before we got married. I've been in 3 airplane partnerships and one beach condo partnership. Yes, we can agree to disagree. However, if you are going to decide everything on your own, you will greatly narrow down your potential partners.

Ruling out high-wing LSA's because you think they are ugly is very short-sighted. For instance, the Flight Design is the most popular LSA for a reason. Having been flying less than a year, there is probably more about LSA that you don't know than what you do know.

Anyway, good luck with your search. I hope you find someone and an airplane that you will enjoy. Partnerships are a good way to own an airplane IMHO.
