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.

I heard they are phasing them out of production with plenty of leftover 2010's around. Cessna pitches it as their SUV of single engine planes so that is why I asked. Great plane for flying around FL/Bahamas, seats 6 and for short flights it looks like a good package.

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
I have yet to be in a 400, but I parked the Bonanza next to one. Kinda made me feel like I was parking my Baja next to a MTI....with no bumpers.
I truly am jealous! I thought I had "arrived" when I got into a Bonanza, but DAMN!

Scott,
The cirrus has whats called their CAPS system (Parachute). Great to have but gives the wrong idea to novice pilots. Great to have, but if ever used the plan is no longer any good, but you have a good chance to survive

I know my policies are nullified if I get a private pilot license.
