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

Sundownerman,
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?

New prop we just fitted to our C210m
Rather than going the usual way we went with (as far as ourselves and the propshop are aware) the 1st of a kind in ZA

MT Composite STC 3 blade for the C210
*10kg lighter (even spinner is Kevlar with chrome Finnish)
*5-10 knot faster
*shorter take off
*quieter
*way less vibration
*no max RPM limit on prop operation.

After 5 hours flying I have to say other than looking utterly sexy it performs even slightly better than the specs they sell it as.

Price wise, not a lot more than the usual suspects BUT you getting latest tech and efficiency. Would confidently suggest it if you looking at a new prop.

On another note we have out old prop for sale is anyone is interested, came off c210M normally exasperated.

Feel free to PM if you would like any more info.

The prop that you find on the Cirrus' is also approved for the 210. It is an even more aggressive looking prop. Wonder if it will give you anything more

We spent a lot of time on the prop hunt.
Our C210 is non turbo. and oddly that eliminates many prop options and likely the one you mentioned
MT was the only one (non usual suspects) that had STC for c210m
