Moving my C182 to the States

Moving my C182 to the States

<HTML>Ferry flight ?
New registration ?
Clear Custom ?
Hangar space in the BOS/NYC Areas ?

This is not so much fun anymore to fly in Europe. I decide to have my plane ferried to the USA and I intend to park her on the North East coast, not too far away from a low air-fare ticket from Europe to BOS or JFK. I shall then enjoy flying in your vast airspace.

I first need to find someone to fly my bird across the pond. Then, I will have to change the registration (from HB to N), have some kind of Delaware Registry (FAA FAR Sec. 47.9) and clear custom. In the long term, I am looking for a hangar in the Boston (or NYC) area, at an airport with maintenance facility (annuals) and somebody to run the engine on the ramp while not in the US.

Any good tips from your side of the Ocean.

<HTML>Running your airplane engine on the ramp is insufficent operation. It needs to be flown.</HTML>

Re: Moving my C182 to the States

<HTML>Here is another suggestion:

I keep my plane at College Park, Maryland.  This airport is located on the north side of Washington, DC.  The benifit of this arrangement is the fact that the airport is located across the street from a Metro Station.  You can fly into Reagan National Airport, hop onto the Metro, and be delivered almost to your plane.  The airport community is good.  Lots of friendly people willing to help out.  I pay about $65/month for tie-down. 

Phone number 301-864-5844.</HTML>

Re: Moving my C182 to the States

<HTML>Yves,
The previous College Park, Maryland suggestion has it's
merrits.  My concern is that infrequent usage would lead
to deterioration.  Why not consider a partner, club or
Fixed Base Operator (a FBO is a maint station, school and
or renter of aircraft) that would relieve you of the
concern of keeping the aircraft airworthy.  Just the cost
of transporting your aircraft across the pond could cover
your cost of establishing access to an aircraft here.  The
interest from the sale of your existing aircraft could
easily cover the fixed costs of a club.
I had learned to fly in College Park in 1971.
Best wishes,

Re: Moving my C182 to the States

<HTML>Hello, Yves!  I suggest that you keep your present registration number and fly the plane yourself.  Your current registration number will not require you to obtain a U.S. pilot's license, and you can avoid all the difficulties of U.S. Airworthiness Certificate Conformity inspection, and repainting your aircraft.
  On the other hand, if you sell your airplane and just purchase/lease/rent/partner an airplane here, you will probably realize a profit in the value differences.
Regards, George</HTML>
