Hi Gary, I have about 2400 hours in the MU2s Almost all in the Marquise version. I only flew a short model a couple of times [and I thought the long version was squirrelly!!] I also flew an "L" model a little. The L was a pig, way underpowered. It didn't like to fly above about 16,000'. It would never get to FL210!! I flew the Marquise at FL210-250.
The MU's are a TANK!! very well built. The test spec to over 'G' the tail was 14 g's !!!
Nice cabin, but a pain to work on, the mechanics hate them. I helped on some 100hr inspections. they ARE a real pain to work on.
The 'electric seats' are in the Airbus that I fly now. they spoil you quick. In fact the whole airplane spoils you quick, once you figure out the automation and the side-stick flight controls. I have 8 years and about 5000 hours in the A320 now. I expect [hope] to retire flying the 'bus.
My dad wanted to build an ultralight, but health problems got in the way, but he stayed an aviation fan anyway. He had an Aeronca Chief when I was about 12, that is where I got my first flight. Later I got my floatplane rating in an Aeronca Sedan.
Take that written!!
