It’s no secret that flying is an expensive habit. No matter how much you enjoy being up in the air, some part of your mind knows that there are bills waiting to be paid once you get back to the ground. That’s not to say it’s not worth it, of course, only that you should have a plan for handling all the related expenses or the joy of flying could leave you less than enthused at times.
One option that is definitely worth investing in is an airplane starting unit (or a helicopter starting unit if that’s why you fly). Obviously, convenience is a major reason people like these. When you need to jump the engine, you can do it from virtually anywhere. This can save you some money in the long run.
Your hangar probably also needs a large number of tools and accessories aimed at ensuring your plane will have no issue getting in the air and staying there. With so many people going in and out of the industry, there are always used tools floating around out there. In fact, it happens so much that there’s almost no good reason to buy new parts at any time.
