Recurrent in 900XP starting 3/12. Always been a Simuflite man up 'til now, unfamiliar with Brand B. Best restaurants in the area? Tips? Etc.?
have been to "witch-a-titty" for King Air 350 and enjoyed it. stayed at Marriott. there are better cities for food, but you'll survive. A place called "the grape" had good food, but that was quite a number of years ago. if my memory is correct, the bar in Marriott was fun.
It's an 850XP with TFE731-50Rs and tweaked winglets. It's got a bit better range than the 850, better high & hot performance, better climbs and better runways in general. The Proline 21 has been standard since the 850XP I believe (optional on the 800XP).So what's the difference between the 800XP and the 900XP (I'm guessing proline 21 and winglets)? Also, one of my favorite memory joggers: 33 time to pee.
That's fine as long as everyone in the department goes to the same training facility. You can't have some going to FSI and some going to CAE. Taking that even further, you pretty much have to go to the same location of the same training provider as well. I've attended FSI Atlanta and it was completely different than FSI Long Beach, both for the same aircraft.That's the way it was in the Military! It's better for you in the long run.
