Warning: getdate(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Turbine P-Baron
      03/29/08 06:09 PM

The folks at Rocket Engineering have been working on converting a P-Baron to a twin turbine with -21 (PT-6s). Sent me some info and it looks impressive on paper. They claim a rate of climb as fast as 5,000 fpm and high speed cruise at FL250 over over 300 knots. If anyone would like to see what they sent me, send me a private message with your e-mail address and I'll forward a copy.

They are supposed to be test flying the first one in a couple weeks and I'm told the folks from Twin & Turbine will do a demo flight with them soon.

Best,

Dave
