Piloting, Owning and Operating a Beech Bonanza A36 - www.gotoair.com

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 over six years now.

CAA Update - Bonanza A36 can go on register, Maybe

I have had a phone call from the Maintenance shop to say that the CAA surveyor has said it should be OK to put the Bonanza on the register in my circumstances. The circumstances are that the engine has done 600 hours from new. There is another plane in the hangar that is also trying to go on the CAA register but apparently a little dickie bird tells me that their engine is not is such good shape and the CAA might not approve it. I hope I have not got it the wrong way around!

Apparently the Chief Engineer has to certify that in his opinion the engine is fit to continue in service. Even then if it does get approved it only has two more years or 1080 hours to be used on a public certificate so I better get renting it out to save up for a new engine. I didnt really want to get into plane hire too much but perhaps I need to for the next two years otherwise I will have a rather large bill. I why didnt I buy a share in a plane?

I have not yet seen confirmation of the CAA decision yet and I believe it is not officially made yet so there is plenty of time for this to go to rat sh*t I expect in the world of aviation. It a damn good job cars aren't this regulated else the country would grind to a halt.
