That’s a fine looking airplane! I wonder how it performs? It looks like a baby Denali.

The plane that would dominate the market had Cessna decided to build it in the 90s.

I remember seeing a prototype of this at Oshkosh/Sun N Fun back in the early 2000s. Great idea.

Google Innova 341 for more info. Certified as an experimental, amateur built. All the effort that went into hanging turboprops on non pressurized bonanzas should’ve gone into this project.

If you don't think that thing is sexy you don't have a soul!

having recently sold our 340, this is especially neat to see.

although in aviation, "one of a kind" = "bad."

Experimental/home-built.

Two words: Experimental avionics

I think he's a little strong on the price, but I'd love something like this. Stuff it full of whatever experimental avionics goodies I wanted, fill it up with gas and people, have a blast.

I wonder what the ceiling, time to climb and TAS at altitude are for this beast.

Does that matter as much on a T/P as it does on a piston engine?

I saw it apart on a truck a while back. Apparently it had some bad fuel leaks. I guess they got it sorted out and back together. A more modern panel would make this a very interesting machine.

What's the engine worth? Probably not much.

It's a great idea, one that Cessna could have done and beaten the market. But I think its time has come and gone.

You lose both nacelle and nose baggage. The only thing left is behind the seats, which isn't much. That would be a deal killer for me.
