Hello MAD pilots! It is time to consider buying a company plane for our base at KEAT/Pangborn. We have roughly a half a million dollars to spend. That will pretty much take us down to zero, but I’m confident we will make gains.
I’ve listed below the options available on my end. The default X-Plane vehicles are listed with a (LR) to denote Laminar Research. As well I’ve added in the Propstrike Cessna 172 since it is also free. Payware aircraft are listed with an asterisk. While we can certainly use payware aircraft in the VA - keep in mind that all MAD pilots may not have access to these airplanes.
Before you make your decision here are some statistics on each:
We can also pick up some of these aircraft on the used market for a bit of a savings:
You can vote for more than one type of aircraft if you are on the fence. If you have a write in candidate that we should consider - please comment below.
