Something of a ‘Bonanza’ from Carenado
I’m sure the majority of our readers, (particularly the PPLs among you) will appreciate the aspiration for an aircraft such as the Beechcraft Bonanza. It’s a Private Pilot’s dream; a factor particularly noticeable when you compare it to some of the more basic GA aircraft you find at most flying clubs. It has a range of over 700nm, can carry six passengers, has all the toys on board and comes with a higher level of comfort that is sorely missing from many other aircraft in this category.
The aircraft reviewed here is the F33A model introduced in 1970, and last produced in 1994. The Bonanza range was originally launched in 1947 and is still being built today, making it the longest continuous production run in aviation history.
