Hi Douglas,

I agree that it looks like it was designed by committee, but it does a 
great job.? The engine is the Pratt & Whitney PT6A-34, 750shp, like the 
Caravan and most other recent turboprops. If you look beneath the skin 
of any turboprop, you will be amazed at how small the actual engine 
really is.? The engines hang out front for weight and balance reasons, 
because of the low engine weight.
