Default great deal

Can't help on the financing, but just to say you're gonna owe that lady a lot of help around her yard and house for that great deal.

Have you checked with your credit union?. I financed my 1st rv through my federal (postal) employee credit union. They treated it like a loan on an... RV. Seriously. I had to get it appraised, and had to get hull insurance. That was all.

I have had good experiences with US Aircraft Finance. I don't know if they will consider an airplane without logs, but the worst they can say is no. It's worth a try, and they have been good to deal with for me.

Default Credit Union

A credit union will work with you. If your military, join Navy Federal. They worked with me and were good with a letter from a mechanic that the plane was worth more than I was borrowing.

MWH265,

I’m a member of NFCU, but didn’t think they were in the airplane financing business.

Mickey,

Definitely a deal of a lifetime. The plane is in excellent shape too.

I didn't know about mine either, until I asked. :-)

Default Thanks

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions. I was approved today by LightStream for a loan at 4.5% interest. A completely pain-free application process and on holiday weekend at that. Now to go pick up my RV-8...Pics to follow.
