Tom Chappell, CS&A Aviation Insurance, said he gets many calls from buyers who want to move up to aircraft they are too inexperienced to handle. "Many of these candidates," he wrote on his website, "are a real stretch to insure and, in the opinion of many, questionable as to safety. In short, they are skipping steps of much needed experience and over-estimating their skill level. Often the caller confuses ability in the cockpit with ability to afford the aircraft." As an example, Chappell cited the pilot of a Beech Baron 58 who wanted to move up to a single-pilot CitationJet. "You think I'm kidding? After all, he heard that a Citation is a safe aircraft and easy to fly. This type of transition candidate never fails to proclaim his ability in the cockpit and his attention to detail and safety issues. When questioned about taking an interim step, maybe to include experience in pressurized aircraft or possibly turbine aircraft such as a C90 King Air or a TBM 700, the question usually falls on deaf ears."
