ASA Buying And Owning Your Own Airplane

New buyers who are in the market for their first airplane would do well to review ASA’s Buying and Owning Your Own Airplane, which provides a wealth of information on what to consider and how to avoid common pitfalls when realizing one’s dream of aircraft ownership. In addition to providing key information about the vast number of unique models available to potential buyers—including everything from LSAs to complex aircraft—this fourth edition of ASA’s buying guide also delivers critical data on all of the other facets that go along with ownership, such as insurance costs, maintenance and overhauls, just to name a few topics. The book gives readers a holistic view of ownership so that they are prepared to go into the difficult decisions of which aircraft to purchase, how to negotiate a sale, etc., with eyes wide open.

The book also takes a broader look at the general aviation industry, making predictions for what the market will look like in the long term. Written by James E. Ellis, the guide is available as an e-book on applications compatible with Adobe ID.
