In the 19 years I’ve had my Ercoupe I’ve seen prices rise from 2x to 10x. If I hadn’t got it where I wanted it over the first 6 to 10 years, that would all be out of my reach (I’m retired now, which doesn’t help). Let’s face it, you have be upper middle class, at a minimum, to even consider owning an airplane.

It is hard to say! Some people just buy what they want. I personally have to watch how much it costs, plus upkeep. How much an airplane plus upkeep have stop many want- to- be pilots from flying. I guess many just see $$$ to them self.

Do you think MOSAIC will affect Ercoupe prices, as pilots flying under sport pilot rules to avoid medical issues will gain more light sport options (152, Tri-Pacer, Cherokee, etc)?

Sorry, I did not keep it. Basical said aircraft prices would be coming down. However, I sure have not seen this to be true. Maybe on the big guys. Talk to Vern down at Skyport yesterday about how people are being priced out of flying now days. How a C model now selling @ high 20's is just killing low end flying.
