My plan used metrics that equate to a bit more than 3.5 times the fuel cost (though avgas is a bit more dynamic than jet-A). My numbers for the Albatross seem oddly similar to those of a large Kingair. If this is the case than clearly an efficiency and cost effective balance can be found. Agin, this is not going to be used for any sort of commercial operation. No hauling of goods or persons for other than personal use. The airplane need not pay for itself, however I have to pay my rent and I do that by keeping my clients safe, happy and informed.
I guess what I'm looking for is affirmation that my DOC estimates are inline with other industry operators. And of corse that the type doesn't have any skeletons hiding in the regulatory closet.
Agin I really appreciate your input. Please keep it coming.
