    Legacy15 - A 1980 Cessna can run you up 20,000$ USD, and thats concidered really cheap for a for Single engine Propeller types, Say a C-152. Even there, maybe a 1978 Model.

    A jet plane, single engine, hmmm, Well, sometimes people strap rockets to Their Pitts Specials. Otherwise, I think An Italien Company made one awhile back.

    Jet planes can easily run you up 100,000$ usd, even if it`s a single seater. Don`t even think about buying a new one.

    If you want to check out prices for different types of planes check out:

    http://www.trade-a-plane.com/

    to get an idea.

    Even if it`s from the 1970ies, an airplane still is in excellent shape, even more so then your two year old car. Mostly due to the extra care given to something which goes 200 kph at 5,000 feet.

    I believe the plane is an Extra, if I`m not mistaken... a turbo prop... I`ve seen these things take off a lot.. they`ll get 2500 ft down the runway and then just go straight the heck up. It`s pretty crazy stuff.

    I heard he`ll give you the plane if you can go on a ride along without barfing. OK, I heard it in my head, but still.

    Model airplanes to not compare to real ones.
    They may operate using the same laws, but are much, much different, you can`t comapre the two.

    Well, for a little clarity on all this, I am a pilot, I have been in the aviation world all my life, so I can give you the specs on everything. The planes they fly are known as EXTRAS`s. They have 2 turbo chargers on them which does not give it more speed. At different elevations the air becomes thinner. Since how engines need air, in order not to lose the power they use the chargers. All the actual speed and power come from the engine itself aka horsepower and the fuel they put in. The fuel is 100 octane with led in it to help keep the engine cool. These guys pull up to 10 g`s which they have to have extreme bodies and workouts to handle it. Fighter pilots would pass out in that. The reason why they do not use jet powered planes is because the engines are to heavy and they produce to much thrust to make quick turns like that. Prices also very on many different planes. Any new plane like a cessna 182 would cost you about 400,000 USD. Older planes earlier than 1980 sell for about 90,000

    down to 35,000. The cheapest jet you can get that is single passenger is about 240,00 USD and burns about 600 dollars or more just in fuel an hour. The cheapest passenger jet like a citation etc even old and used would start at 2,000,000 USD. The world of aviation is not cheap.
