Does anyone here have experience with the operation of a legacy two ten? Or performance tables / a poh somewhere? I have found many information on the aircraft on the net, but only of younger specimen.
@boscomantico Do you know her?
@ploucandco I read that too, but I have yet to meet a maintenance nightmare. And I have read all sorts of things about the aircraft we operate. (According to this chatter we are supposed to spend around 100k€ in maintenance each year … so I don’t believe a second in this kind of heresay, but am interested in real life experience… Normally the people who actually know the aircraft have a more grounded attitude. No offence intended) Of course, when you just drop the plane at a shop and leave a blanco cheque in the glovebox, there will be substantial costs. But that is true for all aircraft older than 6 years (give or take).
I do know of the CPA Buyers guide but sadly there isn’t an ebook available for purchase and shipping is expensive and time consuming. So thanks for the link (although I have to discuss if it’s worth 44 USD to me …)
I have a scan of the POH for a 1964 210D I used to fly. I can send it to you if you think it will be useful. The 210D has an IO-520 instead of the IO-470, but all the big changes came later.
No, unfortunately not.
Wow. Almost identical avionic setup that I have…. plus the MT.
Looks like a lovely vintage example.
There are lots more 210’s for sale that seem better value. My opinion is you would be married to that aircraft for life at that price point. I can send you the C210 buyers guide for free if you are going to progress a 210 purchase. The later the better is the summary.
Better Value depends on what you are looking for, isn’t it? I have found many Centurions for sale with a – comparable – avionic museum for almost twice the price. But input is warmly welcomed.
Do you have a digital copy of the book?

Knowing me, l think that would be true for any aircraft. Hard to put them up for sale. Did that a couple of times… ;-)

Well, that seems natural, if you consider that Cessna improved their Models with each Version.
