    The S-1S is apparently a lot lighter on the controls, and a bit twitchier, though I've never flown one. You'd lose half the fun in owning the S-2C - taking other people for a ride - but save on the money. But if you can get a reasonable deal with the flight school, and IF they are good at marketing it, you can probably get a two-seater that will earn you enough to bring your costs down below S-1S sole ownership.

    How much Pitts time have you got? When I got mine, Bill Finagin came and taught me and others to fly it - a hugely experienced Pitts pilot, and a really nice guy. If you do get one, I can recommend a trip to Annapolis, unless you've already got a bit of Pitts experience...
    I would definitely prefer an S2C. The prices seemed a lot further apart last I checked but I was probably comparing a newer C.

    I actually have zero Pitts time. Finding one to get in locally has been impossible which is why I think getting one on the market to rent and give instruction in would work well. I have heard of Bill before and he was on my short list of instructors. Thanks for the recommedation! For myself, I have about 10,000 hours with about 1,000 dual given and about 5,000 jet between the BE-400 and HS-125.

    I only have a fraction of your time - around 500 hrs - but if you haven't much performance tailwheel experience it's worth getting the best instruction you can before tackling a Pitts. They're fantastic fun, but also a perfect example of "the flight isn't over until the aircraft is parked". I've had as much adrenalin, sweat and excitement out of 20 minutes circuits as out of a similar aerobatic session. To quote another airline pilot, with a lot of hours:

    I realized that this aircraft would do EXACTLY what you told it to do.... But it would eat your lunch if you told it to do something wrong. It was the most honest aircraft I had ever flown, but if your input was wrong, you would pay the penalty...garbage in… garbage out. I was soaked in sweat when I got out of that Pitts. Ron didn't say much as he started cleaning off the leading edges of the wings with cleaner. I walked into the hangar in my soggy flight suit with my flight helmet hanging from my hand wondering if I was going to be able to make the grade. I didn’t feel like a 12,000 hour airline pilot…I felt like a student pilot.

    And that's before you start getting to grips with inverted flat spins, and crossovers...all perfectly recoverable, but a bit of a surprise first time round....

    Hamilton Khaki Pilot Pioneer (this one in quartz, due to budget and piddly wrists, but a lovely watch, a reissue of a 1970s design produced for the RAF).
