I have been flying my Blackhawk Conversion Caravan for seven months now and it is just the most amazing plane. Speed, climb and take-off performance are now beyond belief.
I routinely fly into an airstrip that is at the 10,400 foot level on Mt. Kenya, and is only 550 yards long. Its no effort at all.
