I’ll be in a position to hopefully become an aircraft owner in the next 2 years or so, and was thinking of a Cessna 152 with a BRS? I know they have the system for a 172/182, but a 152 can be had for less than 40k, which is my budget for cash only purchase. The reason for the BRS is, I enjoy flying at night, and the added safety feature is a plus for me. My mission profile is KSBY to KLDJ to visit family every other weekend. It’s 150 NM, about 1 hour 20 minute flight, driving one way alone is 3 hours and 30 minutes best case scenario with no traffic. It will be mostly pleasure flying on the east coast. I will be flying solo, with the occasional friend family memeber, but only locally or short cross country. I kind of feel like the 152 is limited, but it could fit my mission profile. They go for about 30k on trade a plane, and with the BRS install, should put me right on budget. The other option is to delay the purchase another year or so, and go for the 172. Thoughts?
