Well, that eliminates the Cessna 320, but the 1979 King air is still a possibility. Here’s a 1979 like the one Fishbucks looking at available for only $850,000. That would cover a lot of Baja Casas for retirement.

The initial cost of the airplane is just the tip of the iceberg. Check out operating costs. You need to catch a lot of Yellowtail to cover this.

I wonder if that old adage about boats applies to planes too, you know, like "a plane is a hole in the air you pour money into."

Fishead’s plane budget requires him to give up his $100/month shack, and live in the plane :lol:

following an engine loss on takeoff, a 310 will roll over on its back in about 1/2 second. i have quite a few hours instructing in these. currency and a high level of proficiency are paramount. have fun. be ready for a sputtering motor during critical phases of flight.

Read the NTSB accident report posted by Bob and Susan on the engine loss and crash of the 320 fishbuck was looking at that crashed years ago. Must have been a pretty good pilot as the plane never rolled on its back.

the second engine is only to get you to the site of the crash. its tough to pull back the throttle of the only running engine prior to rolling on your back. hopefully, the PIC remembers the training and follows procedure.

Been busy in retirement.

Been flying a bunch. The Cessna 320 is a rocket.
My nickname is the "Rocket to Riches" cause I can get you to Vegas from Orange County Airport in 1 hour. No TSA line. I meet you at the security gate and drive you straight to the plane.
As soon as everyone straps in I fire it up and we are gone.
But a terrible Baja plane except for pavement . It does cover ground very fast. I a used a 310 for Loreto and it was perfect.
I'm sticking with my Piper for Baja.
Still shooting for a July 1 trip to BOLA for red hot yellowtail action.

I am back in retirement today after a very busy week as a jack of all trades. I needed a beach day.
Even made a buck.
And that is important because as we say in the flying biz... "No bucks no Buck Rogers"
If you don't remember Buck was a space pilot but the concept applies to aircraft as well.
So I am an "insider" at Orange County Airport which literally means I can get in the gate and onto the flight ramp...
And all the Baja planes I will ever need are parked there. It takes time to build credibility in the flying biz so people will let you use their beautiful airplanes...
But I still have my humble trusty Cherokee Six baja rental... she'll get us there...
So I am giving myself 1 year in Newport. I need to see if there is any race left in this old rat. And my how the rat race has as accelerated here in Socal.
Soon as I get a chance I will go down and rent my little $100 place an furnish it from the Segundas.
I still need a place to stay and can get a trip a month down I hope.
The little house is near the runway by the Buen Pastor hospital so I hope I can fly in there and walk to my little rental house.
We'll see...

Be ready to jump on the rudder. It's the yaw that will get you. That's what gives you the snap roll into a spin.
If it gets away you'll never get it back.

No sure why. It's all part of the same dream.
I'm still planning a fly-in fishing trip to BOLA on June 1.
Fishing already looks like it's picking up.
So I am persueing a pro-pilot job but also trying to get my baja flying trips going too.
Driving to BOLA is about 12-15 hours.
Flying to BOLA is 3-4 hours.
You can do your own math but it equals less driving and more fishing.
But you can drive it if you want.

Why does a twin need two engines??


Because it won't fly on one!!!

Back in the day my 172 Cutlass took me many places in our favorite strip of land.

Economical and great views unfolding all the time below
