Actually it IS how the world works, and that is what Part 129 is all about. I would imagine that most large carriers have at least 100 Part 129 AOC's, plus a compliance department that monitors...

Lightnings are not really considered "GA aeroplanes".

My nominations would include Queenair or Piaggio 166 (not the Avanti), but as the OP states a 185 with a 2-blade prop definitely gets noticed.
