Where to start
I got my private in 2012 and promptly took 10 years off from flying. I'm recently current and moving right into my instrument. I'm thinking I'd really like my own plane and if that's the case, I'd prefer to do my instrument training in the plane I'll be flying so I have an increased level of familiarity with it. Perhaps increasing my safety margin a bit.
Does anyone have literature or books they'd recommend to help guide me in the selection process? Right now I'm leaning toward a normally aspirated 182 with steam or partial glass. mid-60's- mid 80's roughly. Trying to keep it under $200k. My home airport is KAPA, so I want something with a bit of capability to handle the elevation here.
The aviation bug has bitten my head clean off and I'm tremendously excited to be in the skies again.
