Re: Any pilots out there / in here?

Not sure why you are so focused on a twin ... increases the price tag (initial and ongoing) significantly while only yielding marginal speed and safety improvements. Now a Diamond Twin Star is nice, but it's also pretty darn expensive. And as a fresh multi-engine pilot it is really hard to get affordable insurance.
Especially in Switzerland. There was a story of a lady who won a small single (maybe an Archer? really don't remember) at a lottery organised by a flying club. She had to resell (or donate it back? really can't remember) to the club as she couldn't afford insurance.

The funny part being that the club couldn't afford it either any longer, thus their decision to get rid of it...
