Mase T:

The Archer has always been one of my favorites, and I sold a few of them. I'm also a big fan of anything that burns jet fuel. OTOH, I wonder. It kinda seems to me that the extra expense of such an engine is hard to recoup in a smallish airplane. I have a friend who flies hundreds of hours per year doing high-tech aerial photography under contract. He owns/operates/flies his own C-210, goes through engines rapidly, and his been hoping for a diesel engine for years. The ones he has looked at, however, just don't pay off in his in his opinion. He--and I--keep hoping the prices will drop.
What sayeth you and the other AVSIG experts? I haven't seen the extra price and performance on the Archer. Is this the one?
