Piloting, Owning and Operating a Beech Bonanza A36 - www.gotoair.com

This is the story of owning and operating a 1993 Beech Bonanza A36 in the UK and some of its adventures and flights. I have owned this plane for nearly six years now.

N reg or not N Reg

Buying the Bonanza A36 was the easy bit. After that I had to get the plane from the D Registration to either the G Registration or the N Registration. As the Bonanza is a very capable IFR tourer and my plane was particularly well kitted out I was worried that an IMC rating would not do it justice but like most other people who fly planes without aspirations of being a commercial pilot the UK Instrument Rating seemed unatainable because of the 6 months ground school learning about weight and balance of a 747 etc.

I decided therefore that I would put the Bonanza on the N Registration and train for an FAA Instrument rating which is considerably more sensible to achieve because it is based around the requirements of a private pilot. I went through several weeks of hassle putting the plane onto the N Registration and spent 10,000 euros to do it.

My plane changed from a D Reg into N-345SF and was ready to fly back from Berlin towards the end of July.
