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.

Sorry no update

Well I have not found time to put an update on this site so but today due to the continaul poor weather I have had my final IMC lesson cancelled and tomorrow my test will be cancelled too. Very dissapointing as the first day we can get together for now is a week away. Mind you the weather looks crap for the next few days.

I flew the Bonanza on Monday to Walney from Blackpool. A whole 7 minutes! I had a 210kt ground speed with the strong winds earlier this week that preceeded the crap weather. That was fun but what I love about the Bonanza A36 is the way it handles the into wind legs. Because it has such a good range of speed you can add in just a little more power than the outbound leg and make up some of the speed lost to the headwind. I used to get very frustrated in a slower plane once you turned into wind but I was still getting a very respectable 140kt GS on the return leg. Thats still faster than my previous plane which was a 182 which are not slow anyway.

Anyway back to flying on MS Flight Sim for another week practising my NDB holds and hoping for the weather to improve.
