How about a DHC-6 Twin Otter as a medium amphibious transport bought in 1987-1988 or so? Is that a mundane purchase, something a person unaware of the supernatural might consider a good corporate plane for shuttling people involved in offshore oil between Caribbean islands lacking airports?
It's necessary to think about the image you're projecting by the apparent purpose of the aircraft. DHCs and Antonovs are supremely practical aircraft for getting people to places with equipment. But they aren't what a typical corporate executive would want to be seen in: they're aircraft as industrial equipment.

Float-equipped Beechcraft, Cessnas or Pipers aren't so industrial. They're more the aircraft equivalent of nice saloon cars.
