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.

Bonanza A36 slow speed handling

I went out on Friday to have a flight to get me back in practice and decided to do some slow speed handling in the Bonanza. Its not often I do this as I usually take off, turn on the auto pilot and press a few more buttons then land.

It was amazing just how differently the A36 handled when flying at about 100 knots with no flap down. In fact it was plain scary, how mushy the handling becomes. I guess it is like this so you have no excuse for recognising the signs of a stall.

Next chance I get I am going to go out again and get some height and try some stalls while on a simulated approach. I have always thought that is is funny that you practice stalls with the nose of the plane in the air but actually the most likely and dangerous time you will stall is when going slow in the circuit and perhaps when turning on finals or something. I guess its more important to practice in that configuration.
