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.
Wow today has been gorgeous weather in Lancashire and perfect for flying but unfortunately even though I got to my plane I had forgotten to ring and say I need it out and so it was behind several planes and including a plane in a serious state of strip down so I didnt dare ask them to get it out. Anyway the Bonanza A36 is ready to go and I have arranged for it to be left at the front of the hangar for the flight tomorrow.
I also called the Isle Of Man ATC on the off chance that there would be some restrictions due to the TT and there was. I have been there before and no PPR is required but during the TT week you need a slot and have to file a flight plan so the ATC helped me to do that.
The Bonanza is now booked in for 9.15hrs local to land at Douglas and the flight plan is filed. Its all very exciting. Now I have got to manage to arrive on time.
The weather is forecast to be just as nice tomorrow as today and I cant wait to get flying again. Its been three weeks since I last managed it due to work and children. The Bonanza has been crying out for a run out by me but I just couldnt get there.
