Well that's too bad Bob.  At least you'll stay up in the air.

I guess this pretty much corners us into limited options. The first being financing - I think we'll just have to do financing, if and when we ever pick a good plane for the money.  The best angle is probably going to be to start simple and just get the plane, then market it as a club to get a few more members to help pay for it.

One would think that prices would be better in the winter - but of course I've never bought an air plane before. Have we found any good planes yet?

Best of luck to you.  Despite the limitations, those LSAs do look like fun.

And thanks for getting back to us with the update.  I know it's a
difficult and time-consuming effort to go through.

OK; that means we now know that there are just three of us actively
interested in purchasing a regular GA airplane.  A cap of $45K is a bit
tight in getting something that we'll all be happy with, so we have a
couple of things we can consider now:

  - We can solicit on eefc-interest to see if there are others willing
    to step up.

  - We can explore what financing the balance will do to our monthly

Any opinions?  (And are there lurkers now who'd be interested in taking
a more active role?)
