This.The fuel burn is very similar. I wanted to say I planned 1600 lbs for the first hour on the 55, 1500 lbs on the 35. The numbers were fairly close.
Ya but they both have 1 thing in common, they suck to carry people to places in....
It's better but not by much. The 55 is a "stand-up" cabin for most people.Is the cockpit roomier in the 55 or the same?
That's just in the old 20 series Lears."Gear up"
"Low fuel checklist"
they can both be great airplanes but won't be viable after their next 12yr/12k inspection.
One of our local medevac operators is phasing out the 35s in favor of 2005 beechjets. They say the beechjet has shorter enough legs that alternates are going to be a problem on some of their normal trips that weren't an issue in the 35. So yeah...Hardly.
