My gut feeling says it's not even in the range.
Counting with US prices: https://aerospace.honeywell.com/en/l...ng-an-airplane
That article is pretty in line with my calcs

Engine Reserves: $1,700 ($17x100 Hours) (I'm estimating 3000CHF, as I assume that I can get maintenance work done at the airstrip in Italy)

The "rest" is higher here, but still in line:

Fuel: $40/hour x 100 Hours= $4,000 (8 gallons/hour X $5.00 per gallon
(except that fuel here is about twice as much...)
Oil: $2/hour x 100 Hours= $200 (this seems incredibly cheap)
Landings fees= 50 (I woudl estimate closer to 200CHF or so, as 9chf/landing, say 24 landings)
