Insurance co.'s not only look at T.T. but also time in type! For example, you could build 500 Hours in a C-172 or something equivalent and even move into a BE-76(twin) for another hundred hr's or so and still the insurance company will want you to go to SimCom(Good/Smart move by the way!!) and then get 100-150 hours in what ever you buy(C421B) before you can get an insurance rate that isn't completely ridiculous($13,000/yr). And you will be required to go through recurrent training each year through SimCom/Flightsafety(or equivalent).. In my case, I was able to network and find a pilot/CFII with 800hr's in the C421B, to fly with me and be the primary on the insurance until I have enough hours to give the insurance company a warm/fuzzy... Having a CFI with you for the first 100 hours when taking a significant step up is PRICELESS!!!
