I'd rather have one PT6 than two Continentals or Lycomings in almost every case.

Probably some corporations or their insurance companies do, but out there are 
some commuter airlines flying Pilatus singles. But PT6 has a very low failure 
rate. Another point for the TBM.

Compared to a King Air 90, it comes out cheaper, with more range. Who
needs an extra P&W?

Top of the line, great aircraft, although for many I suspect it's a bit 
expensive for so few passengers. I have a friend who sometimes flys one, and he 
says that is the most fun aircraft he's ever flown, above Challengers, 
Saberliners, Jetstars and the like. It's a little expensive to feed, as fuel 
burn is fairly high, but he just flew Wichita to Dallas in about an hour and 10 
minutes.

When I stopped by the airport today, I spotted a beautiful traveling
machine on the ramp, a Socata TBM 850, with a distinctive registration
number. Here is the overall view.

Moving in closer, I spotted the five-bladed prop and wing-mounted radar.

Looks a fine way to reach destinations large and small.
