Brice Sanders here. Retired Marine Corps Aviator living in the Hershey, PA area now flying helicopter medevac with Life Lion. My last stint in the Corps was as an instructor at NAS Whiting Field, FL on the T-6 Texan II. Really enjoyed that tour! Anyways, it’s been a couple years since flying fixed wing and the itch has been prevalent the last few months to getting back into fixed wing. I have my wife and two young kids and my father who flew privately lives near by and I’d like to start the process of exploring possibilities of owning an aircraft. I have not flown a bonanza but that is the aircraft that I have my eye on. If there is anybody in the central Pennsylvania area that has anytime to chat or would mind a co-pilot in their bonanza I’d be more than grateful.
Thank you,
Brice Sanders

Hi Brice,

Welcome! I am based at KPTW, and we have a few Bonanzas on the field, Mike McNamara is President of the Northeast Bonanza Group and has probably flown his Debonair over 4500 hours and could answer any of your questions about Bonanza ownership and operation.

My girlfriend lives up in Allentown area and works for LVHN. I believe Life Lion does their medevac? I’ve seen them up at Jake Arner Memorial Field (Lehighton) a few times that I stopped there for fuel.


The advice you get is worth what you paid for it...

Welcome Brice!!
My last station was Eglin AFB. I do miss the gulf coast.
You will be hard pressed to find a better flying, more solidly built piston single than a Bonanza. Good luck with your search.


Remember, no matter where you go....there you are.
