Reading through some recent topics there has been discussion on maintenance costs, certified vs. experimental, ownership, etc.
I owned a 1946 Cessna 140 for almost eight years. The average annual was right around $1000. I think the cheapest was $700. Just from reading through some posts it seems that most people are paying less, even on more complex aircraft. I am very happy with the job my mechanic did, and figure that the price was all part of keeping a 60+ year old aircraft in airworthy shape. I never did an owner assisted annual, so there would be room to gain some knowledge and maybe get a break on price.
So I am curious; what is everybody paying for their annuals? If you respond, please include any factors, such as aircraft complexity, age, condition, etc.
