Previous Owner History:
This was a one owner aircraft. Based in Chicago and flown corporately. The aircraft was always hangered. This twin has proven to be reliable with a spectacular documentation history.
Damage History: None

In Flight Report: The flight controls are typically heavy of a high-speed aircraft in a roll and yaw, a bit lighter in pitch. Steep turns can be accomplished with ease without retrimming. Power-off stalls are unremarkable; you’ll feel the buffet through the yoke well before reaching stall speed. In terms of cabin space, load hauling capability, fuel economy, range, VMC, short field performance, durability, and accelerate and stop distance, it matches or beats its rivals easily. It is also an excellent trainer. “-Pilot josh”
