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.

Its cold in a microlight. I love my A36

Well recently I got the opportunity to have a flight in a microlight and I was pretty impressed with it.

A friend of a friend agreed to swap a flight in a Pegasus Flex Wing with a Rotax 912 engine that powers many light aircraft today with a flight in the Bonanza A36. It seemed a fair swap to me.

I visited the friends "hangar" which was a small but well organised shed in a farmers field in a secret location in deepest Lancashire. I was truly amazed at the power and performance of this machine. It was literally up and away before you could blink from a field to short to walk your dog.

The machine cruised at 55mph but could do a little more but frankly it was so cold at that speed I wouldn't really want to go much faster.

The view was amazing and the experience was great but I wouldnt want to swap my A36 Bonanza for one. Beechcraft are not in any danger of losing me as a customer just yet!

If I had £25k spare and a field big enough and Mrs F would allow me I would however have one of these things at home. They are great.
