How to calculate the price for used 2nd hand paraglider?

Posted by Martin Havel on

There is no silver bullet to calculate the sale price for 2nd hand glider, this should get you close to the reasonable sale price for current or superseded models for gliders with 100, 300 or 400 hours.

  • You have paid $4,600 (New Glider)
  • - $420 10% GST
  • - $270 Age = Current Date - Purchased Date $15 per month
  • - $1,200 Air Time @ $10 per hour
  • - $400 Superseded model $400 per model, (by two models -$800)
  • - $200 Ground Handling hours @ $20 per hour
  • - $100 Beach Flying, Stains, Damage $100 - $500
  • - $200 Repairs, Replaced Panels, Tape Repairs $100 - $800
  • Sale Price: $1,810


    You can also do $15 p/h for the first 100 hours, $10 p/h for 100-300 hours and $5 p/h for over 300 hours. What often skews the result is that the ground handling hours are not accounted for. Add the ground handling hours @ $20 per hour.
