Have only flown a Beechcraft Duchess many years ago for an Instrument Proficiency Check, but studying the early -470 Debonair. Not many left in Europe, but appreciate the build quality, and the practical transportation.

Personal flying is in a Warrior.

Hi Robert, welcome to BT. What is driving your interest in the Deb?

Hi John since joining the ABS and speaking with Beechcraft owner/operators have had a Damascene conversion to the V-tail.

My Warrior is a good platform for 300nm sectors, but being in the UK the Bonanza is suitably more long legged. I did some corporate flying in the day, mainly Italy and Central Europe, but now working full time at one of the ATP airline cadet schools. Would use the Bonanza for visiting friends and family in Europe.

A quick trip to Europe is unrealistic in a Warrior, not least because most airways start at FL80.

There are few Beechcraft Bonanzas in the UK, although the 36 is a bit more popular. This means less good engineers who understand the type. OTOH I like the fact that you can find well looked after Bonanzas which are being maintained to Beechcraft standards. Even the youngest V35B will soon be 40 years old, and if your aircraft is well into middle age, shouldn’t you fly one of the best built types?
