So do you think it is cheaper than a baron on a per mile basis? I've thought about one myself. what about insurance and yearly training costs?


Cheaper than a P Baron by a mile. :hide:

10,000 Ish for insurance

3K ish per year on training

Let's say that I wanted to fly a Meridien at 5,000 ft (for sight seeing perhaps). How much fuel would it use at what speed?


500 lbs of torque and 130 knots and 40 GPH maybe less.

I want one. Or a Malibu/Mirage with the Prop jet conversion.

But in all seriousness - how far can one go with 4 adults and luggage?

Some of these appear to have a low useful load given the fuel consumption rates....

A G1000 Meridian will hold 1140 of fuel and have about 560 pounds left over for people. 270 pounds an hour is a good rough estimate. We liked to land with 300 pounds, 250 if VFR and low traffic area.

How big are the people? A payload of 600#s can travel about 800nm depending on weather, etc. For each extra pound of payload one less mile of range is a good (fairly conservative) estimate.
