There is a fixed cost that you have to consider before you finalize an airplane. You might want to make a down payment or would prefer to pay EMI in installments every month. The AOPA Loan Calculator can help you sufficiently in this regard. Getting the airplane insured is another big responsibility. The insurance cost will invariably vary from one place to another. Additionally the cost of maintaining the airplane and stationing it in a hangar is an important factor to enlist. The real time and hourly costs should be your next consideration. Owning an airplane means that you have to feed it regularly with its quota of fuel or oil. 10 gallons hourly is the minimum estimation amounting to 50 apparently per hour. Every 3 flight hours your airplane will require one-quart oil priced at 6 per quart. The fuel expenses also vary from one airport to another and thats why its important for you to have an estimation chalked out beforehand. Maintenance cost is definitely a hefty one. You have to get regular repair works done in case anything is damaged inside. Routine inspection including such as replacing airplane tachometers wire gauges and preventive repairs are must. Engine overhaul is another factor you cannot ignore. So keeping aside a very good amount of money for maintenance purposes is definitely going to be helpful in the long run. Whether you want to buy a private airplane or you want to rent it depends entirely on how you are going to use it. If you have a minimum use for the airplane then renting one would be better. On the contrary if you intend to fly your plane for 200 hours each year then buying your own airplane would be more suitable. Additionally the luxury of owning your own airplane is definitely more than taking one on rent. For example while on a holiday taking your own airplane will be much better than renting one.
