Hi,

I currently own a PA32-300 Cherokee Six. Considering to buy an Aztec Turbo F for the following reason: full de-ice capability, little faster, safety of 2nd engine, + experience in multi engine.

Question:
Concerned about the increased operating and maintanance cost. On what2fly.com I noticed the cost/NM for PA32 is around $.80 vs. Aztec $1.57? Any thoughts?

Speed: I currently get about 130-140 TAS at 7000-9000 MSL. What is the cruise speed for Aztect Turbo F at 12,000 ft/normal cruise (15-16gp/hr/side). Trying to get a good sense how much speed I would gain from the PA32.

Any help is much appreciated,

Ferenc
