Out of the blue, my wife told me this weekend that she "wants a twin." (Quotation marks to emphasis it was her idea, not mine, lol.). I know she wasn't talking kids, because we've both agreed the one we have is PLENTY. She doesn't drink or do drugs and I even re-conferred with her the next day to ensure she wasn't completely delusional....nope. She's even excited about the idea surprisingly. I think as we approach our 40's, her father undergoing heart bypass over the summer, and the fact that we're restricted to having to travel to visit her family, she's ready to shrink that distance and spend time with them before the opportunity is lost. She's also adamant we get involved with Angel flight and pet rescue. The looming question though: does this plane exist? Oh, and the obligatory fixed and operating costs of such unicorn would be great too! Here's the mission: 100k'ish buy-in. 750 miles (single leg preferred) @ 180 kts, 4 times per year, to her family and probably another 3 or 4 trips of similar'ish length to travel. 750lbs of people, bags, and dog. Approach GPS and coupled A/P, and low- to mid-time engines. I've spent the last couple days looking at Barons (B55), which I THINK might get me close to what I'm looking for. Per my research, I'm seeing $300-$500/hr at 100 hrs, however it'll likely be closer to 60-80. I brought this up to her and her terse reply was "unless you're trying to talk me out of this, don't ever tell me that again." Lol, which wasn't a "no." I've also been looking at the 210 and A36, which may be my fall back plan for I'm guessing a 30% lower cost? She's adamant about the multi though, so it may require some finesse to talk her off the ledge. The question will come up, so here's the answer: I'm at about 2000 hrs, military pilot, 100 hrs multi, and MEI (which I'll likely put to use getting some of my peers some multi and help to offset some of my costs.).
