We have an owner looking at an upgrade. Is there a large difference in the 604 to 605?

Big performance difference? Does he definitely want to spend the extra money for the 605?

How are they with hot/high? Can they come out of a 5000 strip and go 3hrs in summer?

No performance differences at all, just avionics, cabin windows (bigger and placed higher in the fuselage, minor systems changes. How minor? The biggest one I can think of is a flap motor is now on AC Essential, so flaps will extend on ADG power.

The Nextant upgrade for 604s looks good.
