Where should I base my plane.

Post by dhblewis »

Looking in to buying a 4 seater plane probably cessna 172 or Bellance 17-31A.

I live in dublin. Where the best place to base it near public transport.

How much will it be approx?

It Entirely depends on where you are interested in flying from, and if you have the money to maintain and keep, as well as buy and fly a plane.

Weston is anywhere from ?2,500 a year outside, or upwards of ?10,000 indoors a year. But it is on a bus route, and 45 minutes from Dublin City Centre... just outside Lucan

You could also look at Trim, Trevet or Newcastle, although all are a fair distance from Dublin. If you live in Dalkey, Newcastle, depending on how you deal with the owner of the private field would probably be the closest, still a good 40 minute drive though.
