How to justify cost to the other half.


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have seen / heard a few comments regarding the justification of spend to the other half / misses. Here is how I do it.

If you are buying new kit, It it worth mentioning that although it says £7,000 on the price tag, its not actually costing you that... how?

Wing new £2700,

New Motor £4300,

TOTAL £7000

Residual value of wing in 3 years £1300

Residual value of motor in 3 years £2800

TOTAL £4100

So if you were to be selling / exchanging your kit in 3 years the total cost of your kit for that 3 years is actually only £2900 !!!

That's £80 a month, for your own flying machine. :-)

Prices are rough and for example only.

This is actually not a 'trick' of any kind... It's standard business practice for any 'asset' to factor this in to your calculations and makes allot of sense... I hope. :-)

Good Luck for those who need it!! :lol::lol:

I must be bloody lucky, my wife encouraged me to go out and buy my kit last year!

Not linked at all I'm sure, but I noticed the milkman and window cleaner always visit when I'm out with the wing. Strange that....

Just look for the OMO washing powder box in the window.
