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.

Bill for new wing bolts on Bonanza A36

We recently had to change the wing bolts on the Bonanza because they were 10 years old which seems like a good idea to me as you cant choose to change them once they have snapped.

There were eight bolts in total and they have associated nuts and washers etc. Now have a guess at the price for this job??

The price was £1650 including VAT. There were some washers in the cost that cost £65 each!

The price for the labour only made up £385 of the bill so over £1200 of bolts. I think the world has gone mad! Aviation prices are simply daft in my opinion. I doubt the bolts cost this much on a trident missile.
