H/C172/T said:I have plenty turbine time. I was looking at an MU2 or a C90 but am trying to find the best value for 500k or less. I am also considering C340 or C414. The operating cost of the PA46 was appealing, so I am trying to find what others that have flown them think about them.

Was an 86 or 87 model I think, Most uncomfortable piece of crap I have ever been in..........Have no idea how it handled, the pain from the seating position is all that I remember of the flight.
Don't know if it was just something about the seating config in that one, it had a partition between the cockpit and the back, or if all of them are like that........I would rather fly a Cessna 150 from NY to LA than that thing!!!!
Ouch, back is hurting just thinking about it!
