Roman Grosjean, as he promised a few months ago to his fans and subscribers to his YouTube channel, has bought a plane with which he will fly to races, because he has a new season in IndyCar for the Andretti Autosport team.
He devoted the entire second half of last year and the beginning of this to training at a flight school and mastering small planes, and now he has become the owner of a twin-engine Beechcraft Baron – this is a time-tested American machine that has been produced for more than a decade and is constantly improving.
A year ago, the former Formula 1 driver moved to the United States with his family, settled in Florida and believes that it is much more convenient to get to the autodromes where IndyCar tests and races take place by plane, since the aviation business in this country is well established. In addition, according to him, he was fond of aviation from childhood.
Roman shared a few photos on his social media pages and commented, “No more waiting in airports. Got my pilot’s license, learned how to fly with instruments and now it’s time to head to Key West for a romantic lunch with my wife!
According to US sources, the average price of a used plane like the one Grosjean bought is about $925,000, but you can find cheaper. Roman does not say how much he paid for his Baron, but in the comments he emphasized that he really likes the plane.
