    Diesel Glastar

    I can't imagine the cost, but this just looks like it would be a good "cruiser", if you travel/camp/explore a lot of the country.

    Cool plane if 100ll is not readily available, but only 155hp and a bit heavier than its 180hp or 210hp brothers.

    I love my cub, but 90mph on amphibs and 1 pax when sometimes I need two.... I’ve been considering a Sportsman.

    I’d like to fly one. I would think that the diesel would provide more perceived hp than one would expect, due to the diesel torque curves. Might be a tougher power plant to design a fixed pitch prop for as well.
