I have about 200 hours and my father is looking to start his license. We are in the market for either the Diamond DA40 or the Cessna 182. Both have the glass cockpit and there is only about a $10,000 dollar difference in price. I am leaning towards the Cessna, but Diamond dealers are at both of the FBO's we will primarily fly too. We fly about 35hours a month, so it is very practical for us to purchase an aircraft. I think that it might be better to purchase the Diamond because the dealers are at both FBO's, but is the value of the Diamond going to keep up in a few years like the Cessna. I am looking for input on what would be the smarter buy in this situation. Thanks, Jason
