Hello everyone.

I currently fly a Cherokee, and am looking to upgrade to something faster. The BO's look like great options, but I'll admit I don't know much about them. Looking forward to learning on your forum.

Welcome Travis.

I spent more years than necessary in Ruston trying to get educated....somewhat successfully. I’ve recently started returning for at least one football game during the season. Having an airplane makes it possible.


Leave it better than you found it.

Hey, Travis, welcome to BT!
Lots of info here, dig in and play with the search function if you have any specific questions. Or, just ask! :thumbup:

Welcome! I live just outside of Baton Rouge. I see that Minden is having a "Burger Bonanza" open house on June 15th. I don't believe I've ever flown into Minden before, but if I have my plane back from the shop maybe I can head up that way and we can talk airplanes if you're around. Anyhow, glad to have another Louisianian here.

Hey... I am always late to the party!!

From one La Tech grad to another.... Welcome to Beech Talk!! I went there for a LOT of years.. they had a special program just for me!! Stay for 8 years and they will give you a 4 year degree just to see you leave!! Col. Miller was glad to see me go!

I retired from Delta/Northwest on May 31st after 40 years and 6 months. I was bidding number 1 on the Airbus A350 when I left and I am still number 1 on the bid list when I fly my Bonanza. Life is good!!

Keep in touch!!

Welcome Travis,
I, like you was in the same scenario and was introduced to the Bonanza. Flew in a few and then jumped in. Loved mine and had tip tanks that increased range and payload. Sold it to another Beechcraft pilot who desired to own a Bonanza and I’m currently flying a Baron. Great airplanes with wonderful people involved in the ownership and maintenance family. Come on in, the waters fine!
