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.

Beech Bonanza A36 to the Isle Of Wight

Well I have always fancied the Isle of Wight in the Bonanza but never quite got there but today we made it after one hour fifteen minutes of flying time from Blackpool. I would like to say it was a great day for flying but the visibility was absolutely awful but the Bonanza A36 is a great machine for this sort of stuff.

I parked it at 5000ft and with a bit of careful routing we stayed there all the way and it was dead smooth and so long as you didn't want to see much it was perfect conditions. Apparently Blackpool was fog bound during the day but thankfully it cleared enough for us to make it back in.

The Bonanza A36 is a great load lugger with 2 adults, 4 kids, a double buggy, two picnic bags, several changes of clothes and easily slipping in and out of the Isle of Wight's grass strip which is just a walk from the beech. We are so lucky to be able to do this I think.

We didn't see much of the island apart from the beach where we basked in the globally warmed unseasonable sunshine and the kids had a great time.

If I was an MP you could vote for me and my aviation friendly policy. Personally I would vote for a bit more aviation pollution to help crank up UK temperatures just a couple more degrees then think about all the flying that will be saved by people not having to go to Spain for their holidays. A novel way to cut pollution you see!
