That's exactly what I was thinking. Except that I am jealous as hell.

The Marchetti has a back door. I understand it's also fun to sit in and make airplane noises :whistle:

The tail feathers are larger than the 185, and instead of having a tab on only the right elevator, it has tab on the left, and live rudder trim. The right tab is the trim tab. the left is the anti-servo tab.

Is this one of them Marchetti's? :D
I slip through Bergstrom's big Hangar every once in awhile, to see what might be Passing Through :D

I thought this was some kind of Bird Dog :shrug: , but not anything like the ones I have seen :bugeye:

Thanks Bob! It has proven to be a real deal. 20+ hours without a hiccup. It was not what I was looking for, but turns out to be an impressive fit. I like the couch :D

I happen to be on vacation in South Tirol (Italy) and I was just up the road from this airport where the guy flies his PC-12. Attached are a couple pics. First off, the approach and landing at this place is crazy. It's situated in a deep canyon with wires running across not 3000' from the end of the "runway". The "runway" is nothing more than a grass hill that cannot be much more than 1500' but it's pretty steep, at least 20% so that helps. To say it is a one way in, one way out strip is an understatement. The airfield and hangar are attached to a factory which looks like it produces some kind of building products. The whole place was open but no one was around. There was a Kodiak and some kind of sport aerobatic airplane int he hangar. The PC-12 was gone (he's probably in Ibiza again with his girlfriends). There looks to be an older hangar built into the hill but there is a very new and huge hangar that is without a doubt the nicest I've ever seen. This dude definitely did something right in a previous life.

I wonder how winter ops work at that strip?
Don’t they get a fair amount of snow?

Yes on the snow. This place must be pretty quiet in the winter.

Here’s what the owner does: http://www.locher.eu/en.html

I was watching a video yesterday of him in the Kodiak. He said the PC12 was in " revision", which I took to mean overhaul. He definitely knows how to live life!

True statement. Plus on top of the flying bit, South Tirol (Sudtirol) is the most amazing place I've ever been and I've traveled a lot. These people have refined life to the highest possible level here. It's a utopia.
