We have a Cessna 206 with the inflatable amsafe lap belts.  From what little I have found it looks like they should not be used in conjunction with a car seat.  Does anyone have any good experience with these systems? Is there a minimum weight or height I should wait for until I put one of my kids in one? Should I disconnect it in order to use it with a car seat?

I am a new pilot with 220 hours.  All of my time up until now being in 172's, 182's, and my last 60 hours in a T206H.  We are already to the point where we would like more room.  For our usual trip and mission a King Air 200 or 250 seems to make the most sense.   I know I need to get my complex and multi knocked out but am curious about how many hours and what I could expect insurance to require if we do get serious about making a purchase?

Thanks for any help.

A pilot I spoke to today told me he read something from AOPA recently about the insurance rate increases many owners are seeing.  He said the article spoke of added requirements for pilots over 70 years of age.  I had read recently that 80 was the age that these more strict requirements became common.

Does anyone remember this article and can they tell me where to locate it?

We bought a new to us Cessna T206H this month.  I need a tug for pushing it back in the hanger.  Best Tug Alpha 3 looks very nice but they have an AircraftCaddy 4K Jr. for $1,000 less.  Are there any comparisons between the two or any AOPA experts out there that can shed any light on the AircraftCaddy 4K Jr. that if it is ok?

Thanks,

Taylor
