Many of these are in use now for sky diving. They climb like a homesick angel, and are a great jump plane. Powerful and quiet.

Skydive Deland has a new one of these, Bob Hallet, owner. It's a nice plane, climbs fast and is relatively comfortable with center isle two row seating. It's a small door for exit but certainly manageable. Overall, a nice new ride.
