Hi guys! Regards from the end of the world! Chile!
Two months or so ago I have a landing crush in my Cessna 414 Chancellor, we lost on engine in prctice and the other one can’t support the plane. We crashes into a wineyard, right away we touch the grapes the engine become on fire, and when we stoped at all, all the plane was on fire. We evacuated the tube right away and we can save ourself, with burns in arms, legs, hip and face; bit in one piece!
So, why I told you that, because the insurance recently pays the full rate, so I have to buy a new (used) plane. (anyway, I’d never like the cessna jajaja).
I’m kind of new in the aviation world, so I have to make a choise, but i wqnt to ask all you your opinions. We need the plane for cross country traveler, with between two and maybe sometimes 5 or 6 pax. Usually will be a 400nm ride or less.
We also use to operate in short dirt airfields, so it’s quite important for us can use on those condition. This following are my principal requirements for a plane:
Take off 50ft with 15 and 25 degrees (celsius):
I tryed the cirrus with my local dealer, and i like so much, but i read its a not safe plane… So, can you help me? I want to spend between 150 to 250k and put on the new plane a glass panel . I will be in florida next week (i hope) and i want to meet some dealers, so we can make bussines qfter that by mail or phone. Can you help me, whqt do you recommend?
