The KingAir has a worse safety than the MU2 in the US. The difference has been the Flight Safety Course that I think is compulsory for MU2 pilots.

Is Moorabbin or Essendon worse for buildings near the runway??? Look at how close this new building is / looks!
Don't worry, YMMB will soon mandate all training and flying is done with Foxbats, Kelpies or Vixens. They are great planes and very STOL so the runways can be shortened to allow space for more buildings. :ok:

Last I heard Soar had bought a big batch of Tecnams. Same deal though, fairly short takeoff too.

Hearsay of course.

The ERSA now warns of windshear on 17R/35L because of the proximity of that big shed. See below:
