  1. I've been looking at Bonanzas, Mooneys, and the like. I've done many XC trips in a rented Bonanza and loved flying it. I'm still very early on in my research on what airframes are pitfalls/nonstarters and how to tell market value for certified a/c. Something like this looks awesome but I have no idea if it's worth 60k and how it would hold up value: https://www.controller.com/listings/aircraft/for-sale/122535405/1959-beechcraft-k35-bonanza Everything about RVs from what I've read is appealing to me but I wonder if you need a buddy mechanic that's good with them. Dream is to build one eventually but won't have the time in the foreseeable future. Market fall or not, sounds like better to wait till after the summer to buy.
  2. How much do people think the GA aircraft prices and cost of maintenance will drop as a result of the projected recession? I'm thinking of buying something soon to get more hours as my flying club is closed. Or make some more friends who own and wouldn't mind adding me to the insurance. https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2020/march/30/aircraft-market-reacts-to-the-coronavirus

    So what kind of prenup should pilots get before marrying someone? Would your wife be legally required to know about or have access to all or any of your assets?
  5. Are any of the T-6 IP squadrons undermanned?

    Anyone done or heard of an unsponsored reservist doing a VLPAD tour straight out of UPT? Or for a Guard guy not completing fighter pipeline or whose unit went to RPAs? If so, how would assignments work to an initial airframe?

  8. What's with the flying restriction on authorized delay or BIT status?
