    It would be perfect for lots of folks who want to build time at a good price. I just had a brand new 41 hour private pilot ( zero Alaska time) call me a couple days ago.......He wondered why I would not rent him my C-172. Something like this would be perfect for a guy like that. I will pass word around.
    Have the jugs been topped?

    Excuse my ignorance, my 17 y/o is the pilot not me, but at 2354 SMOH is there major maintenance required in the near future? It's certainly tempting!

    The engine is past the recommended time to be overhauled.
    In some cases the owners have " topped" or conducted a top overhaul but replacing the jugs and pistons.
    I used to have a Cessna 150 with an 0-320 160 hp in the nose. I ran it up to 3,600 hours since major overhaul by changing out the jugs a few times and by changing the oil every 20 flight book hours.
    But when you are running an engine past TBO you insurance company can throw a monkey wrench into the works, depending on your policy.
    Back then I had AVEMCO and they freaked out when they found out I was renting my highly modified, well past TBO, plane to student pilots to fly solo.

    But if you are running it as your own plane, with liability insurance only... It makes no difference.

    I would rather buy a high time engined plane that has been flown and maintained regularly,,, than buy a low time plane that has been sitting. Sitting is bad....

    A 0-200 can be overhauled for around $10,000. So you have to ask, would the plane be worth at least $10,000 more with a fresh engine?

    Some planes have so many hours and dings on the airframe that the answer might be no.

    Never think about buying a plane unless you have a good independent mechanic go through the plane and the log books.

    ]ALSO.. Always start researching by checking the NTSB query site for accidents involving the N-number of the plane that you might be looking at... It is a good bargaining chip to have in your pocket. Although not all accidents and incidents are listed. There are lots and lots of planes in Alaska with some very odd repair jobs from accidents that nobody will admit happened.

    Great information! My son is wanting a plane but I think College at the UAA flight program will come first. But when he is dreaming and has me looking, I was never clear on the engine hours, that really clears it up, very helpful.

    Oh yea, he needs to finish his license first anyway, the instructor in Juneau closed shop so he's stuck on the cusp of finishing without a local instructor/plane.

    Thanks!
