If you run off the end of a runway in a Falcon it's not going to make you look good. A Falcon 50 will land about as short as a helicopter.

All the numbers I posted were real. A hangar in California won't be cheap. We flew the GIII 40 hours. You said it cost us 24K an hour to operate, $960,000. No it didn't.

Yes, I have been fortunate. The GIISP deal went down 20 miles from my office. How lucky is that? And the bank also repoed the hangar and was nice enough to let me keep it in there for free until they...

It would help but of course you don't have to have that to be a legal co-pilot. I tried to get typed in the GII/GIII, even got signed off for the checkride, but couldn't find an examiner. Very sad...

The plane was already RVSM. A local guy (a good man and experienced in this) did the manual for the airplane and coordinated with the FSDO. Of course we already had our RVSM training.

Like you said it's been awhile since you operated a GIII. I bid against Dodson, I think it was, on a beautiful hangared GIISP. (With the same 2 Speys.) But the guy died and by the time the bank could...
