For leisure, not for timebuilding or any true “purpose,” what would you buy?

I think my first choice would be a Stearman. Followed by a Super Decathlon or a Super Cub for backcountry flying.

I would want one that I could bring 4 people and still have some usable load left for bags and about 5-7 hours of fuel. What I can afford is a different subject.

When I was instructing out in Arizona, I had a client who owned his own 182. It was a "barn find" that he bought from the original owners wife (it was a 1966-ish model) for dirt cheap. He then proceeded to put $50k worth of avionics in it. It was a beautiful airplane. I'd take one of those.  🤣

I would love a DA-62 ... 7 seats, twin-diesel engines (runs on Jet A) and can burn less than 12 GPH on both engines ... cruises around 200 KTAS ... 

... or an SR-22 GTS. But I like 2x engines over a parachute any day. One can dream, right?

I’ve owned a 1953 Cessna 180 and a 79’ Cessna 206.  Loved both for different reasons.  I’m building a RANS S-20 with the metal S-21 wing.  Loving this new aviation adventure, but it is a daunting endeavor.  I guess it all depends on what you value. Flying the 180 Was always a challenge, while orchestrating family flying camping trips in the 206 was its own fun.
