A Beech A-36 turbine-engine aircraft makes an incredible performer. Couple that with the declining availability of gasoline and piston-engine reliability issues makes purchasing a modified Bonanza even more attractive.
Turbine Bonanzas provide a 50- to 60-knot speed increase above most weather. The Bonanza could also qualify as a short-takeoff-and-landing airplane. On takeoff, a turbine A-36 needs just 580 feet. With climb performance, Turbine Bonanzas will hold a 25-degree nose-high attitude while climbing at 2,500 fpm well above 10,000 feet. TBO for the Allison Turbine engines is nearly double the standard piston engine. Most importantly, the Allison’s failure rate is one every 115 years. That makes the engine 100 times more reliable than a piston-aircraft engine.
There's no better value on the market today
