And they where all the upgraded engine versions.
I’ve only flown the standard c20 powered ones, they are fine on 2 engines and perform well but on one engine, unless light and on the coast, you only extend your glide down to terrafirma.
I haven’t flown one in a while but I would put the operating cost at around R15k per hour. Fuel usage is a around 200l/ph.
