Nice work Glenn! Good luck in your competition! Guess you are a bonafide tailwheel pilot!! Now we just need to get you behind a big round engine and your addiction will be in full swing!

I'm caught up on most of my MATA reading, but there's still a chunk of the 38th century (pages 3700-3800) that I haven't finished, so here's a note from page 3772...

The choice came down to the PC12 and the Socata TBM 850. I chose the slower, but roomier PC after researching the two airplanes thoroughly. I figured cruise speeds of 260 to 280 knots would be plenty fast for my missions and the forgiving flight characteristics and stability of the Pilatus would give me the extra margin of safety and confidence that I always look for in an aircraft. This process will be fun!


The practicality of a TBM is very limited in my book. Goes fast, can carry quite a lot of payload... but there's just nowhere to put "stuff". Sure, you can carry 900-1000 pounds of payload, but it's going to be in the cabin with you, or you'll have people plus toothbrushes. I've looked at it a bunch of times, just can't wrap my mind around really using a TBM for many missions.

(I'll go find an image for TOPP now...)

Sweet video Jo! Makes me want to go back. Is it July 2014 yet?

Hi JW:
I guess so - out of every aerobatic figure i've ever done in my life nothing scares me more than the landing!

I agree Rodolfo, not a difficult choice at all. They are telling us that ours will be taken from green to delivery in about 90 days.

Given the mistake we are about to make in the Middle East, jet A should be around $20 a gallon by then.

Oh wait until your are up there all by yourself in some big thundering warbird, looking over the nose at a ribbon of concrete that will virtually disappear before you land on it. All kinds of fun!

Nice demo reel. I thought Roger Tonry's presentation at ISAP XII in Seattle was one of the highlights of the symposium.

And from page 3774...

I was just talking with a friend across the way who bought a new TBM 850 9 months ago. He had about 250TT, none in high performance, much less turbines when he bought the 850. [...] I am a different sort when it comes to this stuff though. Paul was ready to solo me in the Six at 5 hours, I had him fly with me for five more until he jumped out one day and told me in mixed polish/english, "Is time, you must be brave!"


On this, I'm even more conservative than you. I forced myself to fly VFR-only for 200 hours (no easy task in a 160hp C172N at a mountain airport at 5,000' MSL) before going IFR, and I logged 90 hours of simulated IFR on business trips with my instructor in the right seat before actually doing my instrument training. I think I had 350 TT before I made my first solo flight in actual IFR, and in my own Seneca II.

Man, I loved that airplane: cheap to operate, cheap to maintain, trustworthy, reliable, safe, and comfortable. That 49" wide cabin puts any Bonanza or Baron to shame.

Hey all you Austin and San Antonio area pilots, I just saw this on AOPA's daily email:

Redbird Skyport to sell fuel for a buck during October
The Redbird Skyport in San Marcos, Texas, announced that it will sell avgas for only a dollar per gallon during the month of October. The company will ask customers to take a short survey about their flying habits and the effect the cost of fuel has on them. Redbird plans to publish survey results on its website

I imagine that there are limits, but wow, it sounds good!

That does sound good! A little too much of a detour from my regular routes, mind you... but good!

Nothing wrong with conservative Rodolfo, that perspective keeps smoking holes at bay. The beauty of my situation is the fact that we'll have pilots on staff, so even after I'm signed off I can enlist one for the right seat if weather warrants. I'm looking forward to flying the G1000 panel in the Skylane a whole lot before attempting much of anything in the Pilatus.

I've got a few more weeks of "sleeping" with Martha King and then I'll have my written behind me. Actually, I say that, but I spent most of today walking properties with an architect which resulted in the addition of six assignments to an already loaded calendar.

It's a safe bet that if you follow Jo, you'll get some great images, and have a delightful companion to boot!
