Mine flies, thank you very much. But, I was talking performance, mainly. We can forget anything PT6, as the Garrets simply are 20% more efficient. That doesn't leave that many left - Conquest II,...

Why torture yourself? Go for a Turbo Commander - it will outrun, ouclimb, outspeed, outgross any of these (except the 400LS) burning less fuel. They're simply best in class.

Hit a flock on takeoff with the Aerostar. I could see them trying to get away on the runway, and it was too late to abort - didn't have enough runway left. Luckily, just one hit and he went through...

Nice pics AQRD. I do wish they'd start building them again. Beech and FAA screwed the pooch on that one - it could have been a magnificent aircraft if allowed to meet its design specs!

Westwinds are built like tanks. Consider that the MLG folds outward, which is where all the forces were when the left strut started going into the dirt, and it still didn't fold. It will fly again.

Well, for one, it has 1800hr longer TBO, so that's a pretty good vote of confidence. In fact, if you're on a certain maintenance program, your engines can have 7000hr TBO. Now, in reality, I don't...

Quieter, less vibration, better climb, mainly. Doesn't do much for top speed. Other benefit is to get away from Dowty or Hartzell props and their little fiefdom, costs and policies.
