I am a recently retired military guy who is just getting his feet wet in the pool at CS. Being new to the Frac world I am curious of what folks thought of the aircraft they are flying or have flown in the past.
I doubt I'll have any say in the matter but I'd like to be able to make an informed choice if given the chance.
Grab the XLS if you can- APU and most likely your legs will average under 2 hours. The Sovereign is a nightmare with all of it's capabilities (great for the customer, but it can do almost anything and you will have coast to coast flights in a fairly small cockpit at slow speeds). The XLS can hit the short runways, but you will rarely get 4 hour flights versus 6+ hour flights that the Sovereign can do.
