I donít understand your cost breakdown. Are you saying you pay $84 an hour for a dry Cessna 150 and then also pay $9.56 per gallon of fuel you use?

If I remember right a Cessna 150 burns about 6 gallons an hour. (9.56 x 6= 57.36). 57.36+84 is $141.36. $140 an hour is typically what a C172 rents for so that isnít a very good deal for a C150 which should be a decent amount cheaper
