I thought that was kinda funny when I read it, but I saw something that couldn't make that statement true. I was looking at the fleet of King Airs and noticed something having flown King Airs. If they painter boots on the prop that would completely screw up the balance and not possible per FAR's. I need info from people that know, not 5th hand disgrunted students. Thanks guys for all the info.beytzim said:From what I heard their airplanes are pretty crappy. I used to fly out of Deland and spoke with some of the mechanics. They practically laughed at the test pilots, I mean, students, who flew those things. Example: The boots on the airplanes are not real, they're actually just painted on! Gotta love that!
