Default upgrade....

When you say, upgrade in 5 months to the 99..... do you mean upgrade to the 99 as CA or FO? Are the 99 and the rest of the turbine all flown single pilot IFR as well?

What are the chances of getting a BUR base? (currently residing in LA)

After the year in the 99 you said most people opt to upgrade to the Metro or the 1900s... why? Isn't the 1000 PIC Turb good enough for majors/cargo (of that size of airplanes)?
