I miss the Aerostar (but not the bills).
In terms of engine out, the Aerostar props are so close to the fuselage it really is much more benign than any other twin I have flown (not that many). e.g. the Seminole I received my MEL in, or the DA-42 (demo flights), even the Tecnam twin (flight school for fun), and much easier the the big Cessna twins (friends plane) or Beech Baron (friends plane).

Awe, come on Tim. Bills are fun. They let you know you’re alive.
Spend it now because the gov is going to be coming after EVERYONE to pay for all of this Covid spending.

My wife and I have an email address all as one word. our bills never end.

But, I am flying an SR22 for my current missions at less than 1/4 the operating costs per mile, let alone lower capex (G1 Avidyne model).
My wife and I decided; we are better off spending less, saving more and retiring earlier :)
