    Lucky escape for the pilot. The craft looks so flimsy all broken into pieces.
    I wonder how much these light aircraft costs.

    I get the feeling that they're not too cheap to buy & run - definitely not a pauper's hobby!

    You'll get a reasonable one for less than 40K. But then you need to delve into the sheet 700s to see how it's been maintained. It can be a real money pit for the unwary, which is why most sales are to groups who then share the costs.

    When I was an apprentice we had a Percival Provost, but after being used by apprentices for so long couldn't get insurance. Shame really, as it wasn't too bad an aircraft.
