Low level geo survey so max height normally 250ft, max speed is 150Kts allowed so normally around 130-140 Kts is good.
A repowered FU-24 with a PT6-11 or -21 would be OK but costs to convert??.
Can you run these Turbines on a 150-300Hr maintanence program like the PAC750?.
Vans in the USA at the mo around $800-Mil so not bad really and better resale and versatility if survey goes quiet.
Anyway Im thinkin the C210T is maybe a no go?.

Just came across this topic, so sorry for late reaction.
I fly regular on a Cessna 210 Turbine.
This one got it’s conversion in 1994, an Allison 250-B17F is on the front. It got an extra upgrade and provides 500bhp.
We fly throughout Europe with it. FL230 as advertised is nearly unreachable, so we often cruise at FL170-FL210. KTAS is most of the time 190-195.
The BEW is indeed an issue. More than 2 people onboard means leaving some fuel behind…
