    You could say the same for the 2020 F-150 or Silverado too, I suppose.

    Can it be flown with a 300/350 type rating?

    I can't get past his collared shirt and vest combo.....not even sure what the producers were trying to do there.

    That said, anyone wants to offer a ride in their king air of any vintage, I'm taking it.

    It comes off as old, conservative aerospace exec trying to look hip a la the vested tech exec crowd. Not even an LL Bean vest.

    I actually like the King Air...that felt like a new Apple iPhone model releases that you just say "huh?...why?" vs some massive innovation to get excited about.

    King Air is a good platform. Lots of corporate birds out there, and special mission/government contract MC-12s. But like anything, when new competition enters the market, innovation happens....Paging Pilatus, twin T-prop offering?
