I will like any information on the Casa C212 aircraft. I have heard that this aircraft is very cost effective but would like input from other aviation related persons as to its operation. Thank You

The airline I work for has one. It is a -200 model.

The bottom of the tail is only 9 feet off the ground. This makes it very difficult to find a forklift that will fit under it when you try to unload pallets off the ramp.

It also only cruises at 170 knots. So any trip is pretty slow compared to other types.
