    Nice C-206: 30% more horsepower than stock, probably leaps of the water and climbs like a homesick angel.:cool:
    (I flew them with the stock 300 hp Continental, good airplanes)

    As for quiet: MD-80 cockpit: I didn't fly them for living, but used to commute on AA's MD-80s from LGA to DFW:
    Coming back from an all night Tel Aviv to JFK against the headwinds we landed @ 05:00. I would jump in a cab to La Guardia and bum a ride with the AA pilots
    to Dallas. After being awake for 20 hours I would always fall asleep in the jump seat , head hanging down when strapped in by the shoulder harnesses and drool on my tie. Happened every time because the MD-80 cockpit was so quiet, even the take-off didn't wake me up.

    The B-747 cockpit was fairly noisy, probably because the airflow sped up a bit creating wind noise, also plenty cooling fans and even a sextant port in the ceiling next to, or in the overhead escape hatch.
    (Some pilots would pull the sextant port to smoke a cigarette and suck out the fumes, or so they claimed)

    Back on topic, never been in a G-650 or any VIP jet, but got close to a G-II in flight school, 1978. (Skinny back then, before I became Americanized):cool:
