Club Management Issue by Geoffrey Barnes
First off, I'm not directly involved in this situation, but I am trying to gain an understanding on how other FBOs and flying clubs deal with something like it. One of our club members was flying our 182 -- which the club leases from the two gentlemen who own it -- and had what appeared to be an...

Avgas Where is the ceiling? by Doug Palmer
100 LL just jumped from $3.82 to $4.54 at our airport, and at HAF we traditionally represent the lower costs for our area (SF Bay) Where will it end? to the pessimists in the room this feels like the begning of the end for those of us who pinch our pennies to get a little air time in once...

cost of panel upgrade on bonanza by soxinbox
I am getting ready to buy my first plane. I am considering an early 60s bonanza or debonair. Some of these planes don't have a standard "six pack" panel layout, and I was wondering if anyone had an idea of how much this would cost to upgrade. I probably would update the radios at the same time, but...

$1 + OVC by Ben Smith
Hello and happy Friday : I requested an FAA CD-ROM with all the archived paperwork for my plane. While looking through the various 'Bill of Sale' forms, most of them say '$1 + OVC' for the selling price. (OVC = Other Verbal Consideration) Any ideas why this is done? -- Ben C-172 - N13258 @ 87Y
