Hangar and maintenance fees are two of the biggest expenses of owning an aircraft. But there are ways to make that and other aspects of aircraft ownership more affordable.
AOPA's Guide to Reducing the Cost of Flying offers dozens of tips from searching nearby airports for the most economical hangar rental fees, to changing your oil regularly, to making full-stall landings to save wear and tear on your tires and brakes.
