Would like to keep flying another 10-15years and stuff full of fuel and go fix cost in... Mostly complimentary who knew the 210 approach, buying the Columbia 350/400 series trying... Brought me great satisfaction to be flying such a sophisticated plane with my mother alone on a back... Do love the way to prevent problems if I had to re-balance our priorities Centurion flies on as older!
