Hi Skyraider,

We go through a few C-210's as dealers, and always have 1 "in stock" for business flying - although I only have 40 odd hours in C210's - so not a lot of experience yet.

Still the best load hauler and solid in the air - but also only done decent length tar to tar runway flights so far, unless with my instructor along for shorter strips.

Best "mod" that I learnt in a little cheapie Cherokee, was to have a sheepskin seat cover on the front seats.

Doesn't stop you sweating, but does stop your sliding around on hot leather seats with a wet arse

If all the big machine drivers in Airbus, Beech, Boeings, etc fly with dead sheep's clothes on their seats -there must be some benefits to the solution.

For what it's worth - my butt certainly thinks so !! :lol:

See our current T-210N in her new paint job - looking very cool and a solid 160++ Knot machine

Our Sweet, Sweet Machine!!

Can you share some pics of the instrument panel too? Where did you get the sheepskin covers?

Hi Burger, I've used these guys for a lot of car covers, they do a very good job. not sure how they'd do an airplane seat though, but seat covers are their business, so I'm sure they'd make it happen.

So seems the 210 is a good AC for Africa.

Can you guys share some tech details, like:
1. typical range with 2 and 4 people?
2. typical,cruise altitude?
3. Runway length for the above takeoff and landing?
4. Cost per km?
5 if someone can share average MPI costs?
