That Pipistrel pictured above will cost at a guess $180k+

The Mooney was sub $40k.

Yep Airvan in the pic, an easy one that one. Nice set of landing lights on them.

atually, the pipistrel with certified engine, TSO garmin glass, at current exchange rate of $1.45Au to the Euro, about $170K. base model, about 140K.

how much was that Mooney new?

and why is a new 182 the same aircraft designed in the 70's??

dont mind me, just cant understand why a 2010 C182 still has a carby, and is hard to start on a cold winters wet morning.. and burns 45Ltrs/hour to cruise at 130 kts.

Pipistrel
Mooney
C182
To be fair we are not comparing aircraft of the same age or mission profile.

Pipistrel = 2 seats and little else.

Old Mooney = 4 seats and cheap to buy... running costs ?

C182 = 4 seats or a heavy load carrying utility.

I hope the 'Pipistrel' designers have thought about deicing? With those sorts of performance figures (especially altitude) and IFR it is going to encourage some people to get themselves into a whole lot of trouble...

standard Pipistrel kits are not IFR, or have any anti icing,though it does have heated pitot as standard. but the avionics package i had in mind would be IFR rated, and built to meet all IFR requirements, which explains the high cost. ill have to send another email to ask about anti ice fitment. dont see how it can be done without boots or elements somewhere.


anyways, my original point for shites and giggles..
Old technology Vs New technology



MOG an external camera ! Ohh noooooo

via Ultralights:
Its time for the old dinosaurs and the old boys to get with the times and fly something modern.
Yer not in the recreational aircraft forum here. Around here many have other requirements of their aircraft..

After removing all the pax seats i've had the ripper ram off a large bulldozer in the back of a nice flat floored C182 - Please do show me the modern equivalent...

Not a photo, but one heck of a cool video on a PAC750 driver in PNG

That brings back some memories...! The video is Papua Indonesia though - not PNG.

Don't be fooled by the nice weather at the start though, in those parts of the world most of the time you would spend peering through the murk like later in the video...
