Just because it has an N# registration does not mean it flies in the US. It just means its subject to FAA regulations. There are many aircraft around the world with N# registration that will never...

You speak the truth. Those who can afford to pay cash for their airplanes are the same guys that can afford to self-insure (and many I know do).

The average guy who has to get a loan is forced to...

Wow, that is one impressive list! I like how you basically went step by step to the top of the piston twin class, then decided to "come home" again to another Skymaster!

Because no one has installed a FIKI system on a Skymaster and put it through FAA certification. They must not feel it would be profitable for them to do so.

O-2A's regularly flew with 5400 lbs in Nam, and that was without winglets.
