I love planes, always have since I was a kid. Never learnt to fly though (yet!)

What plane would you buy if you had the $$$ to buy anyone you liked?

I would definately have a Piper Malibu Meridian. I found a great article on it. http://www.avweb.com/articles/meridian/

Chops.

Well, heck -- if I had all the $$ to own and operate it, I'd buy a 737. Or a CitationJet so I wouldn't need a co-pilot.

But if I had the $$ to buy, but needed to fund operations myself, Ir try a Cirrus SR22.

All the money? No limits?

I'd probably have to go with either a Citation X or a G-V. Possibly a BBJ so I could sleep in the back from time to time (I've gotten used to having a bunk onboard).

I saw a pretty neat PBJ for sale in a mag once. Someone had basically turned it into a flying yacht. It had two staterooms and a hot tub. It was a Jimmy Buffet dream plane. That might be pretty cool.

Of course, I'd also be tempted to buy something like a P-51 or an F-5. But in the end, creature comfort would probably win out.

That Citation X is pretty darn awesome.

If you go to

, just about anything in their inventory would be under consideration.

Depends on how much $$$ we're talking. If I had lots of money and no need to spend time working, I think I'd build a Maverick jet:

If I had a bit less money, but enough to not work I'd consider

because they're relatively cheap to keep.

RE: Favorite Aircraft

If I were in the market for a new bird I think I would opt for a Cessna retractable Cutlass. Has nice performance, low upkeep costs, low personal propeerty tax impact, and sports a reasonable front endprice tag (IFR equipped) that fits nicely into the "Living under your means" concept.

I'd buy anything large enough to make into a profitable restaurant. I'm a pro pilot (28 yrs)and am anxious to retire. My favorite plane to fly so far is the old HS-125. Only 405 kts but a real pleasure to operate. That was back in 1978 and 79. Now flying C560 and NA265. Nice but not Hawkers.

Interesting novelty idea for a restaurant and since you've a sincere interest in flying I bet you can add just the charm it needs in the right places to make it pay off. Good Luck and best regards, MM
