Is owning safer?
Pilots decide to buy their own airplane for a variety of reasons. It could be a business decision, helping ensure coverage of a relatively wide sales area, or perhaps an aerial photography business. Specialized flight training — like acro, or a quicky instrument rating — also can be a reason. Recreation or personal transportation is yet another. One of my major motivations was safety. The deal was cinched while flying a cross-country on a cold, moonless October night. My logbook shows a departure from Richland, Washington, and arriving in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
