Now this is one awesome aircraft! The aircraft was designed and is manufactured in Hamilton and sold all over the world. the P-750 XSTOL is the latest in a line of successful aircraft designed and built by Pacific Aerospace and appears to be popular in the skydiving community, but was also designed for passenger, freight and more.
Anyway, the pilot [who wished to remain anon] allowed me to jump up into the cockpit and of course I got a few photos from around the outside also. All I can say is that it was comfortable to sit in and I'd certainly like to have a go in this one day... just a pity that my PPL and budget would probably say "no" :-( I can dream!
Here are the photos. First up the outside and then the cockpit and passenger cabin. Last up is the take-off. The website suggests a take off distance of 244 meters [800 feet] - very very believable from what I saw!
Anyway, enough of my rambling... on to the pictures!
