...if you only flew one or two aircraft, thats understandable. as with other things, beech made little or no sense in that theres no rhyme nor reason to which aircraft have the markings, and which ones dontanyone have a picture of these? Don't remember seeing them when I was flying the BE-200. ..
dude you are killing me. 5 hours is enough in that seat. My right elbow has King Air armrest stamped into it. My left fingers and only hang onto the side window handle so many hours more...wait until you get in a 350ER, it all means nothing when you can do 12 hour (yes i said 12 FLIPPIN hour) legs uke:
well...im sure theres nothing wrong with using them that way either, but according to the gurus at Raytheon the triangles represent approximately one hour of fuel at cruise altitude and power. when pressed further for more info, they are not willing to give anymore than that because they are afraid some yahoo will go out, depend upon the triangles and land significantly short...resulting in a lawsuit for Beech.I was told the triangles were to give reference to where the fuel gauges were when looking at them both.
For instance you have a two triangles plus a tick mark on one side and then you look over to make sure you have the triangle plus a tick mark. This way you don't have to count tick marks.
Take it for what its worth. Probably nothing.
man...i understand, thrust me. and to be clear, 12 hours is loiter time, not honest flight from one point to another...that time is only about 8 hoursdude you are killing me. 5 hours is enough in that seat.

12 hours? kill me now
(12 hours in a BBJ would suck, a King Air???)
