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.
Today I spent some time flying with with our engineer to adjust a faulty gear up warning horn that the Bonanza had been suffering from. Recently I noticed that the gear up warning had been going off whenever you tried to fly a little slower but were still operating within the normal ranges of level flight. In fact if you tried to fly at under 150 knots and reduced manifold pressure under 22 inches the horn would go off. Now this got pretty annoying so today we spent some time flying up and down working out where exactly the throttle should be positioned to get the ideal balance of warnings. The correct the problem the engineer needs to adjust one of two micro-switches on the throttle which he has duly done.
I didnt get chance to fly again after the adjustment as I had to go off to a meeting but hopefully next time I go out that little problem will have gone away.
