New to this Forum, and glad to be here! I'm a former Navy / former Airline guy, ATP rating, with lots of multi time (C-130 / KingAir 200). Very little piston experience. Now in a position to consider an airplane purchase that will be 60% Biz use / 40% personal travel. I'm doing a bunch of research and it's pushing me toward light twins. The usual singles (Bo's, Mooneys, Commanche) feel cramped, so I'm drawn toward the twins - particularly the 310/320s. The added speed and size (comfort and solid feel) kinda make the fuel costs more than bearable. I'm a bit smitten with the newer avionics/GPS cockpits and twins seem to be better equipped. Leaning towards a Turbo - I like the idea of being able to cruise higher (my comfort zone) and above the bumps. Prices for fairly nice / later 310s is comparable to older, slower singles. Yet - they come with more/better avionics, genuine de-ice, and better auto pilots, etc... Yes, there are two engines to overhaul, but a low-time purchase puts that 10 years down the road... A lot of what I've read on the Internet is 10 years old or older. What's the latest take on light twins in terms of maint and fuel now that it's at $6.00/gal?
