R22 purchase


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I just found out about an R22 beta with 1000 hrs til 2nd overhaul going for 60k. I'm seriously considering buying it to finish up schooling. I plan on putting 100-120 hours on it. Working on some number crunching to see if it'll be worth while. First of all, is this the great deal I imagine it to be? Where would be a good place to get some insurance quote? What does an annual typically run? Thanks to anyone who takes the time to answer my questions.

sounds to good to be true, so maybe it isn't.

Does it become close to the 12 yr overhaul?


I would be very careful and have the heli and it's logbooks checked by a mechanic with a lot of R22 experience.


I know that the prices are way down, but the market is to small that you usually find real bargains. If somebody sells under price he has a reason for that. Maybe he's just desperate for the cash but maybe not ...


Fly safe

Let me guess, the 22 is in Wisconsin. Welcome to the club.
