If you want to fly without a check pilot go 44. Due to the handling risks with a turbine it is hard to get self fly hire. It is great to get turbine experience if you are planning to go down that route longer term but the 44 will allow you to fly without a check pilot once you have your rating. It is a nice aircraft to fly and despite all the 'Robbie bashing' on here has always seemed safe and comfortable to me. It handles nicely and is nice to auto. Raven 2 doesn't have the carb heat issues. you sound as if you fly when the circumstances are right. Most Robbie accidents are related to weather and flight conditions in general. Fly within your capabilities and you will be fine.
