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
Good for you. Training is everything in flying. Makes a big difference to practice failures on the ground or in the air while training so you don't freak out when something happens on a normal flight. I lost an engine on a 414 and it was still a little scary but all the training from flight safety kicked in and it was no big deal.

Same goes for diving, recreational diving 60 ft or less no big deal, free diving (no tank, hold your breath) 80-100 ft and you maybe uninsurable.
My inusrance had a specific rider for private aviation.
If I was PIC, without the rider, no insurance.

Never a truer statement.

I have a couple of friends with planes. It really depends on the pilot.
One is one of our senior pilots at the Sheriff's Office where I retired.
I've flown with him before. Very meticulous and a no nonses guy in the air.

LOL-Very true. Get lost, you can't just pull over and ask-LOL
and when chit breaks on a boat, you don't have as far to fall

Seriously though, it's a beautiful plane, and if you get plenty of hours with an instructor, and never get complacent, you'll probably be fine

I love boats, and the personal interactions that go with the whole crowd that surrounds them. With all the new FAA regs and such post 911, I just lost my love of flying

Enjoy, stay safe and keep us posted on your trips.
I'll settle to live vicariously

I quit flying when my first daughter was born, but have been missing it lately. Maybe its time to get current again. My dad keeps his airplane at home, has a small strip, and hasnt been flying much lately, maybe I should be taking advantage lol. Great looking plane, congrats, and be safe.

It's the fastest fixed gear single made. Its carbon fiber/fiberglass. 310hp twin turbo charged continental engine. Has G 1000 avionics, synthetic vision, WASS, TKS (for ice), built in oxygen. Very fast but not meant to haul many people. Ohio to florida in under 4 hours. Ohio to cuba on one tank of fuel.
Ohio to Cuba is not a flight plan I'd suggest filing.......
