You impulsed a plane?? I can only imagine.

I just bought a $14 phone mount for my car and was feeling pretty cool about not getting the wife’s permission first.

Congrats. That will be a lot of fun!

A bonanza. Been in one of them many times. Spent a lot of time in the air with my father and brother. Brother current flies a Gulfstream. My father’s last planes were a Cessna 421 and his personal favorite was a 340 with the Riley Rocket Jet Prop Conversion and Radar. Fast little twin.

I’m glad you were impulsive. Have fun

Right on! You have your private license?
Ha ha....No....Not quite.... I'm very much so putting the cart before the horse. I started flying in November. I probably won't have my license for a couple months. I do have about 50 hours now though. I've been flying quite a bit. It's going to be quite a jump though going from a Cessna 152 to a V-tail Bonanza ha ha! Anyway....they're beautiful and I've been coveting them for quite some time now. It's for sure a big day for me!

Will do! I plan on heading down there in the next few weeks. It's an absolutely beautiful plane. The dark section is like a chameleon paint, it's somewhere in between purple, maroon and teal. Someone went pretty crazy on the paint job. I could take or leave the flames but everything was very well done on it!

....and it's fast and climbs like a beast!
 

UNSTUCK

But stuck more often.

If there's a picture it's not showing up for me. So a quick search for V-tail Bonanza led me to this:

Did you know: Accident statistics proved that the V-tail Beech Bonanza had a fatal in-flight failure rate 24 times the normal tail variant, the model 33 Debonair which was to be renamed the Bonanza after 1967.hireaircraft.co.uk

Must be an awesome ride!

If you need any help with your checkride prep let me know. I'm a CFI

Just make sure they kept the balance right when they painted it. Those planes have a notoriously small COG envelope, and the forked tail is not very trim friendly. Get some specific training on that thing if you can as well.
Yeah. They did the weight and balance. I have the report. The paint job was quite extensive, the pictures don't quite show it. I'll be keeping a close eye on the weights. You don't want to risk being tail heavy.

Yeah. The v-tail isn't an easy plane to fly. They build speed quickly and are very easy to over speed. Early in their production pilots would over speed the plane and the tail feathers would flutter and break. They since have all been fixed to amend that issue but it gave them a spotty history.
