For sale: 1955 / 2008 Beech F35 Bonanza update 6/14/2015

BeechTalk - View forum - For Sale - Aircraft -
Good day, ladies and gentlemen. It is time to get this airplane back in the sky where she belongs. Long story short: I started on this project about 11 years ago with 2 partners. In 2007, they dropped out. Already committed to the project, I had her flying (but not all niceties done) in 2008. Shortly after my checkout and BFR that year, I devoloped an eye problem that really messes with my depth perception, so she basically sat. During that time, I tried to keep the engine oiled and run, but I sadly found some rust in the cylinders winter 2012, so I pulled them off, took a deep breath and looked inside the crankcase - all was well!

So a set of ECI jugs were bolted on, she runs great and is a fine example of a restored and updated Bo! Over the course of the last few years, her interior was completed. No, avionics are not 2014 state of the art, but is IFR. In the last 11 months, a good friend of mine has used her like JH was his; taking her across the US for business & pleasure: Florida, Alaska, and most points in between. Reliable aircraft! She just got a fresh annual (due 8/31/15) & 500-hr mag inspection, IFR cert due 6/2015.

Everything you would want to do for an older Bonanza, but you can reap the benefit of my loss. I have over $140K into this girl, she needs a good home - asking $89,950!

Although chronicled on my website, this is a personally-owned aircraft, I am not an aircraft sales person or broker.
