Oh, and calling it the Dork Jet probably isn't the best way to get a shot. It's a great airplane and everyone I know who has flown it, loves it. It's slow, but it was originally a turboprop so that is expected. I'd still take one over the Climb Restricted Jet (which I fly now) any day.
I have been in the sim at SimCom in MCO. It is a nice looking flight deck.
