Are the 601 and 604 just as good as the 605? Can you get a 605 type rating with a 601 or 604 type rating just by using differences training?

Thanks.

In my experience the difference between 604-5 is a differences course.
CL-601 is a whole different animal. My organization flies all three and that is how they handle it.

The 601 is a different type rating than the 604/605. The 605 is a differences course from the 604. The 604/605 and 650 all have identical performance and handling. The 601 has different weights and fuel capacities, so range was different,
