Sold the Tiger today. Interest was very high so it was priced well.

And I was going to offer to haul it away to my home airfield for free,
as a favour, of course, to save the expense of a wrecker.


All the best,

I couldn't tell if you were trolling or just stunningly misinformed
and inexperienced. Seeing in another post that you have 110 hours, I'm
going to assume the latter. Your statement abot 'newer is better -
period' is just plain silly. I can show you a late 60s Cessna 182 at
my home airport that will put any new 182 to shame. 100 hour engine,
beautiful paint, great avionics, stunning leather interior. All for
less than 1/2 the cost of a similarly equipped 'new' 182. The owner
bought a 'normal' 182 (with shaky P&I) and had it fixed up *exactly*
the way he wanted it. Since he paid a fraction of the cost of new, he
could afford to have it done his way. Ask any A&P (or even any pilot
with more than 110 hours) and ask them how important airframe age is.
They'll tell you 'not very'. A properly maintained non-pressurized
small plane can fly indefinitely...go do some research in the NTSB
database, you will find *very* few accidents relating to airframe age.

I'd take this 'old' Cessna over a new 182 any day. What exactly can
you do with a new 182 that I couldn't do with this older one, that
cost less than 1/2 the price? Hull insurance is lower, so I save money
on an ongoing basis. On a common, simple plane like a 182 (or even a
not-so common plane like my 1963 Beech Musketeer) maintenence and
parts are not significantly greater in cost than for a much newer
plane. Bournelli's law applies equally to 1963 and 2003 airplanes, so
they both can get the job of flying done. So what? What *exactly*
makes the 2003 plane better?

$49500 is not the original asking price of $76000.
