About the Beechcraft Bonanza A36

For many pilots, there is no finer cross-country airplane than the Bonanza.

The model currently in production, the A36, has a roomy interior that typically seats six.

The Bonanza has a 300 HP, normally-aspirated Teledyne-Continental engine that cruises at 176 kts, and it can operate at a ceiling of up to 18,500 feet. The airplane boasts a range of 930 nautical miles with four passengers, which is a respectable range for an airplane in this category. The airplane can carry more than 1,100 pounds of people and stuff.

But what makes the Bonanza a favorite touring vehicle is its smooth handling and airliner-quality ride that make passengers and pilot feel as though they are flying in a much heavier airplane.

The Bonanza is especially suitable for nervous non-fliers or first-timers, because it offers a tremendous view from its wide windows, and yet it feels smooth and safe even while riding through rough air.

Interior appointments include leather seats, fine wood trim, and a six place stereo intercom system that has separate connections for external audio units like CD-ROM players for both both front and back seats, making it an ideal family vehicle. There’s even optional air conditioning to keep everyone comfortable on even the hottest days.

The Bonanza has wide doors for the rear for seats, providing extremely easy access for children,

elderly adults, and folks in business attire. Beechcraft has focused its efforts on making the airplane more of a luxury business travel tool, focusing on passenger comfort and utility while offering the same rugged aircraft design that has served the Bonanza well for years.

Because of the airplane’s reputation, Bonanza’s hold their value and do extremely well at resale. Beechcraft says most new
Bonanza’s are sold to existing Bonanza owners looking to trade up to a newer aircraft, proving that this venerable line is still a desirable airplane. The Bonanza community is supported by the 10,000 American Bonanza Society, which is one of the largest aircraft type organizations in the United States.

  Think your plane is ideal for business travel? If so, send us your feedback.  
 
All of these qualities, combined with popular support and a rich aviation history, make the Beech Bonanza our pick as bird of the month.
