Then we could go to LOTO and on and on!! Better make Florida a stop as well!! Anyway kind of a cool idea if we could put something together.
Nice! I flew out of Benton years ago when it was a s-hole. It sure is nice now though. The new ownership is really great. Helps that Weatherson is a boater too.

Hate to be Debbie downer but......

Those things arent called doctor killers for nothing

The cirrus sr22gts and the cessna Corvalis TC aren't for novices

Too easy to fly and too easy to get into serious trouble

I'm buying a fraction of a diamond da40xls as an hour builder before I move into a HP plane like that.... And that was not my intention when I started... I was thinking the same path as u... But after reading all the accident reports on Aopa.com and talking with my club/ school... NO WAY

Be safe and have fun

Doesn't the Cirrus have a parachute to help you if you are in trouble? Obviously didn't help the Yankee player that made a NYC apartment building a drive thru.......

On a different note, how much trouble is it to fly a Cessna Stationair Turbo 206? Fixed wing, like a bigger 172 with more power.

The parachute lulls people into a false sense of security.... Hence the doctor killer nickname... Kills as many as it saves

I've flown the 172 172RG 182 206 and 400

The 400 is like none of them. All the others are easy to fly. The 206 was super easy to fly. Very docile. It's a heavy hauler and feels like a buss.

The 400 is a lambo on steroids. Everyone has their opinion on what they feel is safe. I feel with proper transition training and practice the 400 will be safe for me.

Also going for a 4 day cessna course with my plane to get some great training in 2 weeks

Just about the same. Speed wise & everything! JK.
From my experience all the high wing Cessnas fly about the same. Slow on the controls & nose up feeling.
The 206 is a good plane, but it likes the fuel for no faster than it is.
