Planning an Annual Inspection for a 55 year Old Beech Bonanza

One of the things I find most enjoyable about owning my Beech Bonanza is the maintenance planning side of things. Yes I love to fly it and travel in it, but for some reason I really geek out when it comes to planning maintenance.

Recently I decided to take a shot at trying to make a video about my upcoming annual and document some of the items I plan to have adjusted/replaced/upgraded. Hope you enjoy the video and learn something in the process!

Flying Blind - Why VFR Pilots Get In Trouble

Martin is an in extremely high time, experienced, and skilled pilot, and yet it took him about 3 minutes (180 seconds) before we were in an unusual attitude. Watch the video
