I'd pick the King Air every time because of field options. Shorter
runways, gravel runways. And cargo carrying options. Besides, the
problem with this bigger d**k thing is that you show up in your tiny
Mustang and you're going to get punted by the Gulfstream Gang.
I think half the world's supply of Cessnas are found up here in
Alaska, but precious few (if any) are Mustangs. The aeromed flights
are almost all King Airs and Learjets. The air-cargo small jets are
more often than not Learjets. Almost everybody with a private jet also
has two other private airplanes. A float plane and bush plane on
monster tires is standard fare. Instead of jets or King Airs, you're
more likely to see a Pilatus PC-12 as the d**k plane of choice. And
for good reason. It's the Goldilocks of airplanes. I take it back. The
ultimate d**k plane here is a Beaver.
