Hello everyone, pleased to meet you all. I'm new to this forum and if this is the wrong place to post this, please let me know. I'm a 100 hour pilot-single engine land and sea. Want to get back into flying after being out of it for years and I don't want to rent, I want to buy. Looking into the used 70,000$ range Cessna 152 / 172 type of thing. They don't like seaplanes in my state and the insurance is much higher so most likely a land plane. It would be my first ownership.
My question is about what can I expect expenses to be for maintenance and upkeep. I know it will vary depending on location and other factors but BALLPARK...annual maintenance, hanger, insurance and anything else I may be overlooking.
Thank you in advance and fly safe, everyone.
