6 Classic Planes You Could Actually Afford-Seriously, They’re Less Than A Car
Git It Git It.
The reason that all of us are here is because we love aviation. Vintage warbirds to be precise. Although getting your hands on a P-51 Mustang or Spitfire is exclusively reserved for people with endless money (i.e.: actors, business moguls ect.), you can still get something slightly less iconic.
We’ve looked around the internet for plane auctions and sale sites, and found a bunch that were built in the 40s and 50s that are still airworthy. Not only that, they’re pretty reasonably priced.
Now keep in mind the obvious. This is just the price of the plane. You’d have to consider storage, fuel, licensing and upkeep but if you’re ready to pull the trigger, here are some you should look at.
6. Beechcraft Model 17
Type: Executive Aircraft
5. Ryan Pt-22 Recruit
4. Mile Gemini
Type: Touring Aircraft
3. Cessna 172
Type: Utility Aircraft
2. Stearman Model 75
1. Aeronca 11 Chief
These are the lowest prices of these planes we could find. They vary in price tremendously depending on what shape they’re in of course, but these were the cheapest airworthy ones online.
