Oh, and I always fly with manual trim, don't like the electric trim in smaller aircraft anyway (don't fly anything larger).

Yes, 2 pilots is better. But that reduces the number of patients or fuel you can carry (payload) which is already limited. Plus I believe it already costs about $2500 per hour to operate one of these RFDS PC12's with just one pilot. (plus doc & nurse)

When you find the manual trim wheel in a PC12 let me know!!
(Seriously it doesn't even have one )
