    Hi Cal
    Try an RV-6 or -7.There's 5000 or so of them out there and they'd have the performance you'd need.

    Wet rates in Silicon Valley are monumental. I don't care how much the 'true cost of ownership' of an airframe is, it can't be much worse than paying $180 an hour for a 182 plus additionals such as club membership fees or renters' insurance.

    Yes his own King Air. And now he's looking at a Cessna Citation X

    Fancy getting yourself an airframe? Or a fractional ownership. My friends father-in-law has his own Beech King Air.

    Looking for something like an affordable C-182, I found this.

    Interestingly, they're going cheaper than a lot of less interesting airplanes, there's a 1999 182 at exactly the same price, though I don't think the maintenance costs would be quite as low as a Skylane. Only a couple of hours' drive for me...
