Good job, Howard! Certainly the best Bonanza page I've seen!
My only comment is that many distinguished members of the
Bonanza family have straight tails (including my own beloved
A36TC), and the site should be inclusive. Let me know if
there's anything I can do to help with this great first
Bonanza page! --D.

city limits. I am a traffic pilot reporter. I love mine,even if it
does have over 9000 hours on it. Love the page!!!Mine is pictured in
the November 1995 Air Progress. N640AM .As far as I'm concerned you can
scan the picture and use it. Altough, of course, I didn't take
it. Take Care.

Nice Page for Bonanzas -- I'm another one of those "straight tail"
owners. 833R is serial CD-2, which makes it, I believe, the oldest
"straight tail" in existence. Built in Sept. of 59, the original
logbook shows 30 hrs of pre production flight testing and about
a year of touring the country for promotion.
It now has about 3,700 hrs and many mods. I'm thinking of
doing a complete restoration/rebuild one of these days.

A quick note about the "World Beechcraft Society". The
official name is the "World Beechcraft Society", although
several years ago, it was called the "Western Bonanza

to bring it in and provide you enough information to provide
them a better reference. WBS is a great organization.

However, the happiest days of my childhood were spent tooting around 40 years ago in a straight 35 with my father.

I flew Bonanzas back in the late 60s & early 70s. It was love at first flight. I never felt I could afford an airplane so I just dreamed. Finally, in 1993, I purchased my first airplane, a 1968 V35A. I've since put a Capehart Ultimate engine in it as well as new paint, interior, and all new glass. It has an intercomm, HSI, Century III, Strikefinder, GEM 610, stereo, etc. etc. Even though I have a lot in it, it still appreciates better than most any other investments I could have indulged in ... and its a lot more fun! I wish we had a dedicated news group type environment so we could openly exchange Bonanza specific information.

I am glad I found Your page! --- V- Tail is my passion. The more I learn,
the more I know that Bonanza is still light years ahead with the design 50
years after the fact! One day I want to own one !

Thanks for putting up the hot link over to GAMI.COM.
BTW, balancing the fuel/air ratios by installing GAMIjectors(tm)
isn't just a "theory", anymore. The FAA says it is proven!
Please feel free to use GAMI or GAMIjector(tm) in your link
reference. And remember, the "show special" $649.00 price
ends at the conclusion of the AOPA convention. On 10/20/96 the
price goes to $749.00.
Will you post a picture of N11RT (alias, "Dragon Lady") if
I scan it and send it to you?

I am looking for the whereabouts of m old F35. The Bonanza is not just an airplane. It is a temple upon which four generations of piolts have worshiped speed, economy, comfort, class and power. I speak in terms of gratitude that I was one of the select few to not follow crowds to the Cessns or Piper camps. I dearly miss my Bonanza and just pray she is in good loving hands today. I am simply looking for the current owner to see how the old bird is doing. The model is F35, S.N. D-4024 Registration No. N123JV. I sold it in 1993 to a aircraft restorer out of Oaklahoma named Jerry Pool. He said he would send me photos when he was done painting her and giving her a new interior. The two previous owners and I had don everything else. So if any one knows the F35 I am speaking of please E-Mail me a message. Thanks, KKaup@aol.com

Thanks for creating a web page for Bonanzas! I purchased my C35 in 1994,
had lots of mods done by Aviation Research in Sandy OR. Started flying
it on Dec. 20 1994 and have put 430 hours on it since! I have been ferrying bonanzas
whenever i can. So far I have found the C model the most pleasurable to fly. It is the
lightest on the controls compared to the later models.

then I found many areas devoid of any data or non functional! They have some nice links but who doesn't!? I think you guys reflect the spirit

Thanks for the great effort. Since 'discovering' your page and posting a query, we've had the benefit of numerous list members' comments to assist us in making the 'reman. engine' decision (it'll be delivered in 2 weeks), I downloaded your J35 checklist and we're in the process of revising ours, and I've learned so much about equipment priorities, maintenance, and flying the engine . . . . This is a great resource for Bonanza owners!

Where do you recommend on looks on the Web for Bonanzas

For those of you looking for an EXCELLENT option for service and repair on ALL recip Beech products, see Jim Wood and Don Williams @ BCH Aviation @ Fresno's Chandler Field 122.95 (Fresno's other airport. Jim's dad was a local crop duster and has a beautiful F-model and Don owns a K-35 with his brother). The guys have over 35 years of combined experience. Having known these guys personally since before the break-up of Beech, they have a reputation of needing to only fix the problem once!!! Give them a call @ 209-441-0991 and tell them Pat Smith said "Hello"

Very nice job on the page!. I'm fairly new to the internet thing as I just got my home computer setup a few weeks ago. My family has been involved in aviation since the 40's, and I currently run the business my father handed down to me, namely selling surplus Beechcraft parts.
The business originated in 1969 selling mostly Model 18 parts, and since I joined him in 1977, we have expanded to cover the entire Beech line, especially Bonanzas, Debonairs & Barons. We currently have over 30,000 line items of Beechparts on the shelf, New, Used, & OHC'd at DISCOUNT prices. Structural, Ldg Gr, Flight Control, small parts, just about anything on the airframe excluding Avionics and "heavy" engine parts. We run ads in TAP, ABS, and WBS, and would not object to you mentioning us on your page, as we sell to everybody; be they private pilots, suppliers, or dealers.

I just found your site from a link on landings.com.
Looks like it will be one that I return to often.
I am the proud owner of a 35, Serial # D-952, N4577V
Which I have owned 22+ years. Can't agree more that
the Bonanza is one of the greatest airplanes to fly
from the handling perspective. I'm also an A&P-IA and
a CFI, in my spare time, so I have worked on them and
taught in them for some time. My interests are also
focused on STC's and field approved 337's for 35 through
G35 applications. About 45% of the V-tailed Bonanza fleet
was built before 1957. Power, speed and ease of use items
are the most interesting changes for me. Keep up the good
work. Snail Mail address is Jim McCollum, 14105 Durhullen

The URL, http://madaket.netwizards.net/vtail/sb337/sb.html
on your website refers to Paul Stuber, a mechanic who would build shoulder harness bracket for the Bonanza. Paul referred me to the following company for everything already all set up:
The entire set of adapter and new lap and shoulder harnesses is available from Safety Ltd. in Chicago, IL. (630) 584-9366. Nice folks, and price per front seat package is $110 with all their hardware. It's less if you send them your hardware. They offer the belts in just about any color you'd need, and they're prompt in getting the stuff out to you.
Total cost for Front lap & shoulder harnesses and adapter plus matching rear lap belts was $320 delivered. Installation takes about an hour of shop time, plus the cost of a 337 submittal (Safety Ltd. provides an example).

N46WS Says, an outstanding internet service to we Bonanza owners.
N46 WS is a 1947 model 35 Bonanza that is restored to factory spec. Its taken 5 years to get the plane together and equip it for comfortable cross country. The greatest joy with this wonderful Bonanza is to slip out to the airport and dusk and take off just before sunset, climb to 8K, then cruise at 21/21 and watch the sunset. It is stunningly beautiful to see Fredericksburg and Richmond light up. Then to shoot a practice ILS approach into Richmond, return to Fredericksburg for a visual over the Rapahannock River and down to landing at Shannon field.
I will spread the word about your Internet page for Bonanza Owners and Pilots at my new field near Galveston. Houston Gulf Airport KSPX. If you should have reason to come to the Houston area, near Johnson Space Center, stop in and ask for Mike Smith and we can go for dinner at T-bone Toms, a "Beechcraft" hangout near the airport.

My just released book, A World Flight Over Russia, has 4 Bonanzas that were
part of 12 small planes flying around the world in 20 days
while crossing Russia. One prominent member of the Bonanza
Society, has spoken at various conventions, his Allison powered
jetprop Bonanza was the only plane that didn't need service
during our 17,500 mile journey. I was hired to document this unique
event that took place in July 1992, the honeymoon period in Russia after the
fall of the Empire when it was possible. Never again, now the
book is out, written from 4 major pilots' journals, 9 ancillary journals,
what I remembered, and 25 hours of video tape, which allowed
me to reconstruct long forgotten events with precision.
We are into the second printing and I would like to send more info
or a book to get a review on the website.

GREAT WEB SITE!! One of the most intriguing features about the 35 is the instrument panel and interior features. while I understand the desire to make an old 35 like new, I would love to see a page with pictures of current panels that are still in their original configuration. Do you or any other visitors have any?

Having owned a Skyhawk for several years, my wife and I started shopping for a higher performance aircraft several months ago.
We began talking with folks around the home field and ran into a couple with a Bonanza.
After a couple rides and lots of conversation, we set our sights on Bonanzas and
soon after found our 'new' J35. We have been very happy so far and are still training
so we can be proficient in the plane.
Your web page is a welcomed addition to our bookmarks and already
has yielded some valued information.

Would like to introduce ourselves....we are ARRELL AIRCRAFT SALES, INC., and we posess what we believe to be one of the largest surplus "ALL-BEECH" inventories, in the world (over 26,000 line items, mostly new, and specializing in Bonanza & Baron). Savings of up to 50% on genuine replacement parts are not uncommon. Just about ANYTHING on the airframe, outside of avionics, and "heavy" engine parts. We are proud to support the finest-built aircraft ever, and our goal is to keep these great birds flying, at an affordable cost. We do not require part numbers(have the catalogs,25 years of experience with parts support), and are always eager to help. The next time you need a part, give us a try, and feel free to mention us on your website, if you like.

The designer, Harmon, himself told me a few years ago that HE considered the B to be the last of the good ones, all the subsequent are compromises, and an excuse to burn more fuel. Welcome aboard!!

Raytheon even built a hanger here and maintain them with the 12phase inspections. We train Pilots for 2 Asian Airlines and 1 European.

Congrats on keeping the best Bonanza website I've seen, going strong!. I just realized that it's been over a year since I've checked in....(time does FLY!).
We have moved Arrell Aircraft Sales to a new building, close to Camarillo, & Oxnard airports, here in Ventura County, California. The new facility is our largest yet,
and we have added many more inventories of genuine Beech
replacement parts, for all models. I believe we posess one of the largest "all-Beech" inventories in the world, and we are anxious to help out anyone with thier parts needs.
Our new address is 701 Del Norte Blvd., Suite 220, Oxnard, CA 93030. Ph:(805)604-0439/Fax:(805)604-0429.
Best Regards, Rick Leatherwood, Pres.

Warning! I feel compelled to say to anyone who owns or is considering ownership of a V-Tail to look at accident statistics before going in this plane. My father died in this plane and the FAA took over 2 years to provide us with an accident report that said virtually nothing. He was called one of the best pilots by his peers, and his tail came off just after takeoff on a refueling stop on a clear day in July, 1967. Beech used "pilot error" in defending these "accidents". My fathers error was in purchasing the plane in the first place. Subsequent research over the years has only reinforced my belief that this is not a safe aircraft. I still enjoy flying in small planes, but I won't step foot in one of these! Respectfully yours,

I stumbled on to this wed-site after remembering the good times my dad and I had in his Bonanza. I think it was a 1959 model (not sure. (N5128C) He passed away several years ago; before I was able to get my "Basic" I never completed it. He had an instructors rating. I never pursued it after he was gone. I do have fond memories of flying in that beautiful aircraft. I fly R/C now and have been for about 15 years. I guess thats about as close as I'll get to repeating what my dad and I did. I have a very close heart felt commitment to all that own bonanzas. I hope someday I will be able to see the plane we had. I have not been up in one since. I see them occasionally at airports. I sometime feel I should go up and ask about going back up in one, but never had the guts to do this. I do want to thank all the people whom enjoy this fine aircraft. I feel privileged to have been able to enjoy the times and the vacations we took in this wonderful piece of aviation history. If anyone knows the where abouts of C5128C Please let me know. I just want to see this plane one more time. I have no pictures of it, just memories. I have a R/C model I have yet to build of a v-tailed beechcraft. It will be a replica of the plane my dad and I shared.

Part of a personal research into the civil airport in Aden, where 1952/3, a regular Bonanza arrival from Perim Island, was a feature. The pilot was a german, name escapes me I'm afraid. Could trace no reference through your pages unfortunately.
I am impressed by the site, however. I simply had not realised just how significant this aircraft is in the USA.

great site, thanks for keeping it up. I just read the 3 page tutorial on lubing the pitch change bearing of the beech prop. nicely written, and based on my watching of the procedure being done several times on my G's prop by experienced beech prop shops, it appears to me exactly right. By the way, when i was living in s. california, i had fine work done by a prop shop in Hemet, CA that has deep experience with the excellent beech prop, and are straight shooters.
