Scott Lee Posted May 30, 2016 Report Share Posted May 30, 2016 I've had my CTLS for a year and I'm thinking of upgrading to a Tecnam P2008. If I upgrade then I expect to trade in my CT. My plane is in for it's annual inspection and installed a 796 with a Garmin GDL-39 3D to get ADSB-in, but I don't have ADSB out. I have about 450 hours on the plane. I have the dual 10" Dynon Skyview and a Digiflight autopilot. The plane is in terrific shape. The gearbox was inspected so it won't need to be inspected until 1,000 hours. The props won't need to be inspected until 1,350 hours. The chute is due for repacking August 2017. The battery was recently replaced. Brakes were replaced. I bought the plane June 2015 for $123,000. Anyone with experience trading in a plane have some guidance on what my plane is worth wholesale? I politely ask that only people with real-world experience with trades, or a recent purchase express a value opinion, or prior experience with a valuation service. To answer the obvious question of "why", it's a bunch of little things. Having luggage behind the seats and accessible in flight. Wall to wall carpet with a nicer interior finish. No openings in the cabin for access to sight tubes and bolts. Better adjust-ability and positioning of the seats. Having a 914 turbo which is has more power on take off, quicker climb to altitude but quieter and smoother in cruise. I love my CT, but it was always going to be my first plane, not last or final.
