Beechcraft Bonanza A36


The Model 36 delivered in 1968 using a modified Model 33 Bonanza fuselage, which was 10 inches longer. This extra length allowed them to add a third row of seats, making it a six seat aircraft. The Model 36 also features four cabin windows on each side, starboard rear double doors for the aft cabin, and a 285 hp Continental IO-520-B engine. Two years later, in 1970, Beechcraft released the A36 Model. It had an improved deluxe interior, a new fuel system and higher takeoff weight. And for the next 35 years, that was it. No B, C or D (or all the way to S, like the Cessna 172), though they did produce a turbo charged version in 1979, the A36TC. This version had a three blade propeller and a 300 hp turbo charged Continental TSIO-520-UB engine. The successor is the current G36.
