1000-- Great Deal
« on: December 22, 2017, 08:16:13 pm »
This seems like a great deal:

Are 1000s really that cheap now? Or is there something that I'm missing?

Just emailed Bruce to ask the same thing - what's wrong with it?  ;)
Slumming it in the turboprop world - so you don't have to.

Very motivated seller?

Have there been many 1000s sold for under $1 million?

Thanks guys.  It?s a good plane.  It?s priced to sell and not sit. It does need some TLC to bring it to my standards which I plan to incorporate into a deal with the next owner. Example: it just came out of major maintenance and wouldn?t pressurize.  I flew it 7 hours the long way home with a showing along the way.  Within 15 minutes, the guys found a duct missing in the tail.   :o

The paint is fair to poor and the interior is average.  Easily corrected. Right now we are working on the discrepancies  and getting a few hours on the plane so please let me know if you have interest.  I have enough hands on time to know it will make a solid plane for anyone interested in a 1000 and should be the next one to sell.

Bruce, how much does it cost to RVSM an airplane like this?

I think to get the most out of a 1000, you really want RVSM. My 980 really starts to work well at FL280, and I remember flying 1000s back before RVSM in the low 30s, where they do a really great job.

Don, depending on what you do and how it?s equipped, about $70k with used components is the lowest I?ve seen.
