It's time for my bi-weekly serious post ...I'm not the sharpest steak knife in the drawer, to be honest. And after a three year layoff, twenty hours in a two-seat trainer to get comfortable again, and about 250 hours total ... I started hand-flying a B200 from the right seat every other leg and managing all the systems when I was PNF. It really wasn't all that terribly difficult, and I haven't even finished my ratings yet. The biggest problem I had was taxiing (that lag was tough to get my brain around), and after a few flights that has ceased to be an issue, as well. As many of the more knowledgeable folks here told me: the King Air is an excellent aircraft to transition into bigger stuff.
Save the $90, scrounge a systems manual, pick the Captain's brain non-stop on every flight, and seek help here if something specific gives you trouble.
Let's be honest here ... if my silly ass can fly a King Air ... how hard can it be?
Wait a minute ... you already have B300 time, and you're a full-time pilot. You already know how easy the King Air is to fly.
Was this question merely about the video as entertainment (it is billed as a training film on the site)? In that case ... we're back to $25 and the picture. Also, unlike Dutch, I do special requests in my King Air videos. I'll add the following for the base $25 price plus shipping:
* Get a t!t-shot the next time we have a cabin full of drunken coeds
* Wing the line guy in his noggin on taxi out
* Moon the Captain on short final
