Illustration for article titled My new crush.

The Bearhawk. A kit that comes with a pre welded tube fuselage and already built flush rivited wings. Nothing really checks the boxes like this one for the money. It can haul 1100 pounds including gas (that’s 4 adult people with full tanks) and cruise 160mph doing it (speed of an older Mooney). It’s truly a family truckster with about the best value proposition of what it can do.

Best part? You built it, so you can do all the maintenance. Saves a TON of operation cost. Land at 45mph.

Downer is the all in price approaching $90k, but, the financing is over 20 years..and when the mini is done, the basement finished...well, it's on my list of to do's.
