John,
You are one lucky guy.
Beautiful family, beautiful plane and it sounds like you might be outnumbered.
Six daughters and one wife, I don't envy those odds.
You are a better man than I.

Nice video. I don’t think your upgrade path is easy. That will be a hard plane to replace.

John,

For the benefit of the masses, can you walk us all through your progression to your Conquest and the response of your wife / kids during the progression?

Do any of them enjoy the ride or is like most of us where you're the only one truly happy on trips in your bird?

I think they all enjoy traveling in the Conquest. Heck, who wouldn’t? But truly, if I were to say, “Does anyone want to go for an airplane ride?” I’m not sure I’d have any takers.

My girls are also local TV celebrities. Here is one of our TV commercials. Cheesy, I know.

All I need to see now is the full size van used to haul all that back to the house!!!

Amazing how much you can haul! Thanks for the video.

Val


Very impressive video and I agree with Val!

We have a much smaller family (my wife, me, nanny, 3 year old and 1 year old) and we are already running into an issue where we have to take my wife's Cayenne + an uber to get all the stuff we are bringing for our trip on Thursday. The plane (C510) will hold all that we have though...

I’ve found that when we travel as a family of eight, it’s cheaper and easier to just rent two compact/economy cars versus one large SUV or van.

That’s a beautiful looking plane!

You must be a patient man. I have a wife and only one kid (18 month old) and I run out of steam daily!

SIX daughters? :ohno:


I can't imagine.


I'd be on about three or four different anxiety meds but you seem to have it together. Beautiful family AND plane.

John,

Great family and plane. Looks like you'll need a 441 pretty soon.

The 400 series luggage space is amazing. My 421 had two winglockers, plus I put some luggage in the aft cabin (only two kids - didn't need all the seats). It was incredible what could be stuffed into that airplane.

My initial impression of the KA350 was that it had a lot less luggage space - but I think it is bigger than it looks. The 350 may be equal or better than the 421, but it isn't nearly as nice to load and unload. Nose compartment access and wing locker access is much better than hauling up the stairs. If I am by myself with the King Air, the stair process requires a few iterations: heft a few bags into the aisle, climb up and stack them in the luggage compartment, climb down to heft the next group of bags, . . . .

I sorely miss having nose baggage compartments.

My blood is green & yellow, but my son likes a lot of the Kubota line.

Best,

Dan
