I bought my first plane, 172P, for $8000 at an auction so I’ll be getting an annual and any other maintenance involved to make it airworthy. It has 67 hours on the engine SMOH in 2016 and around 7000 TT. Hopefully it’s not to expensive of a year for me. Also looking for an A/P near El Paso.

Our March 2019 e-Newsletter asked the following question:

Which of the following do you expect to spend money on in 2019? Check all that apply.

The following are the rankings of the results:

1. Engine overhaul/rebuild: 3%

2. New engine: 3%

3. Avionics (not including ADS-B): 30%

4. ADS-B compliance: 42%

5. Tires, wheels or brakes: 28%

6. Exterior paint/repair: 13%

7. Windows or windshield: 10%

8. Interior – upholstery, plastic, carpet/flooring: 16%

9. Engine monitor: 12%

10. Shoulder harnesses: 9%

11. Speed mods: 3%

12. New fridge for hangar: 3%

13. Beer to fill new fridge: 13%

14. Propeller maintenance or replacement: 9%

15. Fuel system maintenance or upgrades: 13%

16. Other routine or scheduled maintenance: 45%

17. Other: 6%

Here are the additional comments:

• I don't expect to complete any airplane upgrades this year. I did ADSB and a big panel upgrade in 2017. I already have a hangar fridge and don't usually keep beer in it any more since my beer drinking ex-husband left and I luckily got to keep the airplane!

• Electronic ignition.

• A 182Q Aircraft.

• I'm buying a used 182 and plan to install a BRS parachute since I'll be flying the family around. That option was the deciding factor in the 182 for me. I also have a Tail Beacon on order and plan to install an IFD540. 2019 will be an expensive year for me.

• Garmin A/P.

• New plane.

• Wings repaint following limited damage to one wing. Overhauled alternator et starter, new governor, vacuum pump, and heavy-duty battery.

• Vortex generators.

• Oil change and filter.
