17 Findings on Aircraft Composite Difficult to find maintenance data Training Glass panel will require additional training to ensure proficiency Insurance Newer aircraft will cost more to insure primarily due to higher hull value
19 Final Manufacturers Evaluated Diamond Good performance with lower fuel consumption. Excellent safety record. “Hanger Rash” is a concern with composite construction. Fewer authorized service repair centers. Light wing loading, Lower Vno Cessna Average performance with higher fuel consumption. Models within price range Aluminum construction – Maintenance cost are predictable. Good useful loads. 182R not currently manufactured – low time mid 1980’s could be upgraded to club specs Cirrus “Hanger Rash” is a concern with composite construction. Minor and major repairs have stringent environmental requirements. Cirrus Certified Instructor would be required for initial training. Pilots with less than 300 hours would likely be difficult to insure. Expect recurrent training to be an ongoing expense to members. Beech Eliminated due to costs. Piper Eliminated due to costs, performance, and low availability.
21 Financing – Three Options Option 1 – Fund purchase through dues only Option 2 – Fund purchase with a $100/aircraft increase in deposit and dues Option 3 – Fund purchase with a $500/aircraft increase in deposit and dues
22 Financing – Change in Deposit Current Deposit 1 st Aircraft 2010 2 nd Aircraft 2015 3 rd Aircraft 2020 Deposit Increase Total Deposit Option 1 – Dues Only $2,000$0 $2,000 Option 2 - $100 deposit increase $2,000$100 $300$2.300 Option 3 - $500 deposit increase $2,000$500 $1,500$3,500

25 Financing - Thoughts Option 1 Pay as you go Lowest buy in for new members Option 2 Slightly lower monthly dues Lowers club debt burden Returns deposit if member resigns and is replaced Option 3 Even lower monthly dues Lowers club debt burden Returns more deposit if member resigns and is replaced Aircraft purchase finance options should be reviewed prior to next purchase in 2015
Recommended Aircraft Manufacturer – Cessna Cessna Aircraft meet mission and performance criteria required by the club. Late model Cessna’s are fuel injected with G1000 and the latest available technology which will bring new members and younger pilots while retaining veteran pilots. Repair of Cessna aircraft is known, predictable, and readily available. Large fleet of used Cessna Aircraft available Club transition to G1000 Cessna’s offers an advantage over a manufacturer change. Composite aircraft repairs – fewer repair centers, costs are variable and less predictable. Insurance requirements on Cessna aircraft are known Many late model available for purchase within the club budget.
27 Recommendation Only applies to first aircraft purchase and needs to be reconfirmed prior to second aircraft purchase Fleet should contain 3 aircraft Trainer/time builder – Cessna 172 Cross Country – Cessna 182 Cross Country – Cessna 182 RG or Turbo Place current 182R & 182 for sale First to sell is replaced Replace with 182 Turbo/G1000/WAAS/AP Finance via: Raising dues Increasing deposit $500
