M20J Total Cost of Ownership

Hi Mooney Pilots,

Has anyone on the forum done a total cost of ownership exercise that calculates a cost per hour or per 100nm?

Rather choose not too...

Flying is not cheap, even if a Mooney is economical, you can work on around R800 an hour and that is being fairly conservative!

Thanks Pieter, with fuel at N$18.60 per liter in Walvis Bay I'm looking at something higher than that already ;-).

Andre, ek het erens 'n Excel spreadsheet wat dit alles vir jou presies uitwerk. Jy sit die kostes wat in jou spesifieke geval van toepassing is in en dan die hoeveelheid ure wat jy vlieg, versekering, hangarage, ens en jy kry uiteindelik 'n antwoord wat jou ware kostes, direk en indierek weergee. Die vervangings kostes van die enjin, prop, ens moet jy maar uitvind en besluit of die program dit akkuraat genoeg uitwerk Ek e-pos hom vir jou sodra ek hom opgespoor het.
