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.
Well I actually made it out in the Bonanza last Saturday and even made it to a new airfield in my logbook, Shobdon. it was was a lovely day for flying and to cap it all I noted that the Bonanza A36 has finally had its over keen gear up warning horn fixed.
Prior to this flight and for about two years the gear up warning horn and has been sounding at 21.5 inches of manifold pressure meaning whenever you wanted to do a nice slow cruise you couldnt without hearing the hooter go off. Now thanks to the help of a certain Mr Menzies from Hangar 3 (Private Air Management) at Blackpool airport this problem has been resolved. He has been able to get the engineer who looks after the Bonanza to adjust the warning microswitch in combination with flight testing to get it to only go off at about 17 inches that the manual suggests meaning you wont hear it in level flight anymore!
