            There is a Carbon Cub, or a twin on Bstormers right now for 315,000. Sportsman 2+2's go for 160-200k.

              Considering how much more utility there is in a bearhawk, it should go for more.

              If there was a 2 week to taxi program, they probably would. People think that after they spend far too much on a 2+2 in the TW2T program, it's then worth what they paid.

                    They are very complete kits, and advertise them as such. They are also very expensive kits. Worth it? I really never considered either. Neither is what I wanted. Price wasn't the issue.

                    If the BH kit was 40k more, but done to the same level of detail, would I have bought it? Yep.

                    I have learned a lot more this why.

                      Marketing is close but not exactly.

                      Bearhawks are for builders. You don’t build a Sportsman, carbon cub or RV,, you assemble them easily and there purchased by people with more money than time. Majority of Bearhawkers are more interested in investing time rather than money. The demographic buying carbon cubs and sportsman want a sexy, refined airplane and don’t care if the plane is 1220lbs vs 1310lbs. They care about the type of leather on the seats, the carpet, and pride themselves on who can fill there panel with more screens, including screens for the rear seat. Install some Alaskan bush wheels, VG’s and now there bush pilots.

                      I read today on Vans website that there is 1.5 RV’s finished per day in the world. It’s not because they are “total performance”, it’s because people know with 100% confidence that as long as they follow the very detailed 3D exploded view instructions, pull the correct bolt out of the vacume bagged supplied hardware package etc that they will have an airplane. My buddy built a sportsman in the 2 week to taxi program for about 210k 6 years ago and said his grandma in a wheelchair could of done it too.

                      I digress,,anyway, my point is that there is a market for Sexy airplanes and if anyone wants to start pumping them out,,,, I’ve got a market.

                        That is a better answer than mine.

                      I think we're saying the same thing. I think if you "built" and sold bearhawks for 250k you'd sell a lot of them. An M7-260 starts at 338k, and that is by far the closest thing.
