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.

Goodness me the news just gets worse

I have been told today that my engine will need to be replaced because it is twelve years old although it has only done 600 hours so is nowhere near TBO.

This is apparently because the Bonanza is now an EASA aircraft and the new EASA rules specifiy that the engines must be replaced at 12 years or tbo whichever is sooner.

To say I am shocked and p**sed off is an understatement. How did my engine get less safe because it passed the 12 year old mark I will never know.

I have spent hours tonight on the EASA website trying to find details of this regualtion which my maintenance shop think is applicable. Can anyone here help point me to where I can read about this.
