I really like the idea of having a big ole twin to carry around my clan (3-6 adults) around Canada and the USA and Caribbean (400 - 1000 nm) - I don't mind breaking into 2 legs, but probably not 3. I'm not Daddy Warbucks and so a nice new King Air 350 isn't an option. I see lots of great stories about the larger piston pressurized twins (C304, 414, 421, PA31 and BE60). However I hear just as many story that start with "these are old air frames and will cost a fortune to maintain". For anyone out there currently maintaining one of these birds, What do you think? Is it a hassle? As in is is that much worse than a non-pressurized twin of the same era? Thanks !
