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.
A friend came round yesterday and was discussing the TT Races which are currently happening in the Isle of Man just 60nm west of us. The town I live in (Lancaster) sees floods of motorcycles at this time of the year heading for the Heysham ferry port and I have always wondered what it would be like to watch and so I suggested that we dust down the Beech Bonanza and take a trip to the island. Work was due to commence to take it off the N reg today and put it back onto the G reg. Pool Aviation have been applying for the various bits of paperwork during the last few weeks but it is taking a while to complete apparently because the FAA have got quite a few requests for similar conversions at the moment.
Anyay I have booked the day off work and Wednesday will hopefully see us flying out to the Isle of Man in the Bonanaza A36 for a day trip to the TT races.
Its always nice to have a purpose to your flying. Funny thing is that I am more excited about going flying than seeing the TT. I cant wait to jump into the Bonanza again. Must be that flying bug again!
