Flying the Beech Bonanza is packed with interesting and important information which is available from no other source:
- How much help are flaps in getting over a 50-foot obstacle?
- Does it really pay to cruise climb in a Bonanza?
- What airspeed and rpm yield emergency maximum range?
- Does it make sense to run lean of peak?
- What is the optimum altitude for a trip of 200 or 600 miles?
- How should you adjust your turbulent air penetration speed for light weights?
- How do the performance, handling, and loading characteristics of the four Bonanzas vary?
- How can two tail members do the work of three?
"...required reading for any Bonanza Pilot." AOPA Pilot Magazine
Absolutely outstanding job. It is extremely well researched and reads in a manner that all pilots can understand...I think it is about time that someone had done this type of book for the Bonanza. I think it can be a major contribution to aviation safety."
John Frank, founder of the Cessna Pilots Association
"...an important contribution to the aviation literature...melding of precise technical information with practical observation makes (the) book enjoyable reading for any pilot...I found it fascinating and suspect other will, too."
Peter Dogan, late President of PIC (Professional Instrument Course)
"As a retired Navy test pilot, I was particularly impressed with both the technical presentations and the straightforward pilot talk. I believe that I have a keen insight into how the bird really performs."
Capt. Jay Arnold
"...absolutely must reading for Bonanza pilots. It is dedicated specifically to Bonanza flight safety and performance."
Paul Morton, retired Braniff Captain
"I don't fly Bonanzas; in fact, I haven't ridden in one for about three years. Despite this, I've just finished re-reading your "Flying the Beech Bonanza" for the fifth time. It's got to be the most engaging and useful technical book about flying I've ever seen. It literally forces one to think about the airplane and the flight environment in a structured and deliberate manner. The fact that it's type-specific hardly matters. Reasonable good data exists for every airplane, but what's missing is a way to think about that data. Your book fills that gap nicely. Thanks for a fine work."
Paul De Zan
This book is a "must-read" for anyone who owns a Bonanza and especially for those considering buying one. Approx. 200 pages, hardcover.
