            I've flown one of those.

            Nice, if a bit underpowered.

                I had a P2 flight in one once. I agree with you about it being underpowered and a twin with four seats? Not really worth it is it?

                Dont think there are many on the UK register though.

                  I suppose it gives you some sort of comfort at night and overwater.

                    I wonder if it would, what would one of those engines show in BHP? If one quits and you have a full a/c, that little engine has got to carry the other dead one about

                      Precisely why I said 'some sort of comfort'

                        Oh, I know. I still wonder what the output of one of those engines is. Would it keep you straight and level in a one engine out situation - at full fuel, pax etc.

                        I'm going up tomorrow in a Piper Archer, not been flying in nearly 6 months, alot more power than the tommy 112bhp too..

                          A bit of digging reveals 2 x Lycoming O-360, each rated at about 180 hp lugging, at worst 3,900lb or 1769 kg.

                            Having consulted a Single Engine service ceiling graph it gives 4500' at AUW and ISA. So 4000' as drift down should be ok if flown correctly... from experience no chance of climbing to the book figure on one engine.

                            Ref 4 seats, thats only for symmetry, 3 plus fuel for 3 hours and bags was ok much like many 4 seat aircraft. The practicality of it was a cheap twin for training, who needs extra seats for that? As a trainer it was/is quite good.

                              Cheers.

                              So it really is a trainer then. Up in the 180 hp Archer today, it seems like a rocket compared to the tommys 112 hp.
