I suspect that here are going to be a lot of "large engined" piston aircraft on the market in the coming months.

:( :( :(
It has put me totally off trying to buy an aircraft or helicopter again. :cry: I am done with flying. :(

Whirly - ALL things are relative. Fun for money it is still hard to beat flying. I have to think longer and harder about 3 hour + flights, but t is not the end of the world.

About a year ago I bought Avgas at R14.something incl. Those times could return. Oil is coming down again on stories of global recession.
Flew to Hoedspruit on the weekend - what a treat. OK, the avgas cost 2.5x more than last year, but taking the Prado (R3200 to fill the tank with diesel)
would have also been a lot more expensive as well and taken 5 hours vs. 1...

Ron,

How much to fly the Hunter these days? :shock:

The Alo II will now cost me over R3 200/hr just for fuel. :(

We will be accused of hijacking this thread! I mainly fly a much modified 1940 Piper J-5 these days which has a 160 hp O-320. That averages 28 litres an hour so around R900 at the current extortionate prices, I also fly a J-3 at 18 litres an hour ( so R600) and a Cherokee 235 at 42 litres an hour (so R1344 an hour). Expensive - yes quite - but not prohibitive. The Hunter at 1850 litres an hour doesn’t bear thinking about…

I will post nothing more on this thread we can continue the conversation on a new one if anyone wants

Gariep - R35.50 incl.

Check with Jaco (zero ate too :D 653 1 ate 89) before departure. I suspect prices might change as stock is replenished.
