Yes congratulations. I looked at this plane 1 thousand times I bet. Congrats to new owner. Can you help me understand what it is as to why you wanted to sell it. Like for your mission it just didn't make sense to have a giant SUV to make a quick trip by yourself somewhere...or are they expensive to maintain and operate? I just see so many planes like this that look awesome and a lot of airplane for the money.

Aircraft didn’t meet the mission for just my wife and me.
AND 1 amu in 421 terms is $10,000.

Congratulations! I've been tracking TA's for a little while waiting for the right one to pop up. Sounds like you traded and got a nice one.

They are awesome

Purchase price is the ante though. Owning is the gotcha. $10k/yr for hangar, $1k fillups, etc.

$1K fill-up is mind blowing. So I get it. Me wife and kid head up to Lexington to watch the cats plane and I'm paying $300 a ticket each for lowers and $500-$800 for fuel.

Maybe a single turbine jetprop is where I need to look....then what? $20 thousand dollar insurance premiums?

Do I have the right plane for me already when it boils down to it....but the bug that bites....bites hard!

$5 times 200. Unusual but not unreasonable

Look into a -21 jetprop on an older malibu airframe.

My wife and I bought Tom's bird and we love it. Already been to Vegas, Chicago, St. Louis, OKC, and several "local" flights for a 271 gallon 421C. Have another Vegas trip and Napa planned this month, along with a trip to see friends in Key West while gas is still super cheap and things are starting to re-open. We just got out of annual and I did a few upgrades like a Insight G4T Engine monitor and GTN 750. G600txi and digital autopilot are next.

As far as costs, it's all relative. I live in a cheap part of the country (DFW) and my hangar lease is 4k a year, right now I can put 243 gallons on board for less than 550 bucks, and my insurance for both me and my son is less than 4k. Another great thing about DFW is we are in the middle of the country so it makes a lot of locations easy to get to, including Mexico. My first annual was not bad either, as she had a thorough pre-purchase at DFW Aeromechanix and Tom had done a big annual the year before at TAS, as well as several of the previous annuals over the last 10 years were at TAS. She had also flown an average of 100 hours a year since the engines were overhauled, so she wasn't sitting either. Basically all the things you're looking for when you buy an airplane-Clean, flown, and properly maintained. Avionics needed upgrading, but we do that at our own pace, which you can't do with air frame or engine issues. And at the price point we were looking for, either avionics or paint and interior was going to need to be attended to and we knew that. So far we feel like we got a great corrosion free airplane and our mechanic Juan agrees. Tom was great to deal with as well.

Again, we love it and unless we are going outside North America the airlines are an after thought for us now.
