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.

Bonanza A-36 passes its flight test

Great news. Our Beech Bonanza has now passed its flight test with flying colours (excuse the pun) and is now ready to go back in the air. We are just waiting for the CAA paperwork to be issued which we hope will just take a few days.

Today I got taken to Cornwall in a Piper Seneca but as a passenger in the back seat. The weather for flying was amazing and I got a spectacular view of the Welsh coast from low level. It makes me reliase once again (as if I hadnt already realised) that we are so lucky to be able to fly aeroplanes.

The Seneca is a wonderful machine for all you twin fanciers and can be rented from Pool Aviation in Blackpool. It must be the best Seneca in the UK with every conceivable piece of equipment including a full glass cockpit.

I still prefer the Bonanza A-36though because for significantly less fuel 15 gallons against 24 for the Seneca you can still carry the same amount of people and the Bonanza A-36 is a good 20 knots faster for that fuel burn. Actually the Seneca is a turbo plane so would no doubt be much more effient the higher it gets but my Bonanza makes me happy (or at least I hope it will in a few days!
