OK, so you've caught the bug; you're flying and you're hooked. Next comes the big question that bedevils nearly all pilots (and their spouses). Should I buy an aircraft? There's no doubt that owning has advantages over renting. But it also has drawbacks. And costs.
AOPA will answer some of the bigger questions that come up when trying to buy or rent, in a seminar at the twelfth annual AOPA Fly-in at AOPA headquarters in Frederick, Maryland, June 1. It is one of well over a dozen seminars being offered that day, on everything from spatial disorientation to plain old hangar talk.
