  1. Lancair’s have never been referred to as docile. It shows in the high accident rate.
  2. Why buy a lightning when you could get what it was designed from the Lancair. …. if you can fit into it. I'm 6'5 and cant get my knees under the panel but it a screamer at 200 + knots at 8-10 gallons per hour https://www.trade-a-plane.com/search?category_level1=Single+Engine+Piston&make=LANCAIR&model=320&listing_id=2375076&s-type=aircraft
  3. Congratulations on the purchase and welcome to the forum.
  4. Well if that's what Lincoln said about the internet then who the hell am I to argue ?????
  5. Merry Christmas admin Dave . That’s video looks like typical Midwest winds 🤪
  6. Wow. its a small world as I was just at KGRR yesterday having lunch with a friend. Nice airport and a pretty cool small city.
  7. What about figuring out unquantifiable plane ownership costs. Such as knowing always the state of your aircraft. Knowing how much gas is in it what kind and what quality. Knowing its maintained correctly without having to dig though logs . Knowing the last guy to fly it was you and knowing how it was flown and more importantly how it was landed. Not seeing a single INOP sticker in my cockpit. You cant put a price on piece of mind, and me knowing my plane and its state before opening my hanger door its priceless to me.
  8. you get those pencil whipped condition inspections. LOL sorry man I just couldn't resist.
  9. Ignorance is bliss. I have never put a pencil to the costs, because to me it doesn't matter. Its expensive, but most hobbies such as this are. Plus its not a one time fee its a pay as you go kind of thing. I think proper upkeep will pay off in the long run. I do 25 hour oil changes not 50.
  10. Thanks why I ask. His plane is owned by a LLC and I herd the FAA has stated that 100 % ownership of the LLC is still NOT a plane you own so he couldn’t do his own annuals . In other words the plane must be in the name of the individual . Just wanted some clarity on the rules. I was also thinking about getting a lsrm.
