Hello, I'm a long time lurker and first time poster. So, my wife and I are looking into getting an aircraft probably within the next year or so, and I am heavily in research mode at this point. Our mission is primarily monthly trips up to 800nm or less, up down the east coast, and this side of the Rockys with the occasional longer trip. We are a family of three, but will often be bringing others along since we like to take trips with extended family and friends. It would also be nice to have an easy way in or out for our aging parents, and my wife definitely wants a cabin class. We will be flying at night, as well as overwater to the islands so we definitely prefer a twin. Probably will be flying about 100hrs a year. I know the ago old debate about if a twin is actually safer, and as an ATP I am defiantly under the mind set that they are provided one receives and stays unto date with the proper training. Also, turbines at this point are out of the picture because of the cost of acquisition, we are looking around the 200K range for the purchase. So I have been looking into the C300-400 series as well as the Aerostar and have been able to find some good information on these, but I can't seem to find much information about the Navajo. We don't need pressurization, they have a great useful load, and on paper looks like it would fit our needs well, but how much is the total cost of ownership? Cost per hour? How much would a typical annual run after catch up maintenance? Granted any cabin class twin is going to be expensive, but would a Navajo be more cost effective to operate than any Cessna 300/400 series aircraft? Thanks ahead of time for any and all information.
