In our case, we have been willing to put forth the considerable personal effort required to operate these old airplanes — but then, flying is our business and our passion. Besides, as we said, sometimes we are slow learners. If flying is just transportation to you, and you don’t want to put that much effort into managing your airplane, maybe a “bargain” jet is not for you. But if you desperately want to smell jet fuel and hear turbine engines following you around, go for it and follow your passion. We’ve never regretted it.
