Contest!

What's the fastest plane one can legally rent for no more than $200/hour wet? To win, you must find an actual place that will rent the actual plane. It should be somewhere in the US or Canada, and it must be a plane you would trust to fly.

To start, here is a Cessna 182 RG at 145 kts for $180/hour.

Would an M20J for $175 wet beat that?

Disclaimer: I know nothing about this plane, just found it on google.

Okay so what do we consider the winning metric?

Is it just fastest plane under $200 or do you get credit for a slightly slower plane that is much cheaper?

God, I'm so envious of those rates. My club rents the 182RG for $235/tach hr. wet. That includes about $30 in reserves, but the club doesn't make money. All told, at the end of the year, it just about breaks even.

Fastest plane, but ties go the nicer, cheaper plane. But really, find a Harmon Rocket for under $200 and you'll probably win!

Yep, I was a member of Flying Particles at LVK and the M20J is $155/hr wet (plus a half-day or day rental fee).
