I am currently an Air Force pilot. My dad had an A36 that I loved dearly, and now I want to buy one. It seems the best way to get the most for my money is to buy an older aircraft and have it fully restored. Which years/models/options should I seek out/avoid.
I assume there are models that would be a better fit for the investment, and suspect that certain years had significant changes that made a major improvement in the Bonanza line.
A36 versus B36? 520 versus 550? TC? Tip tanks? Speed kits?
Avionics upgrades? Most reliable? Less cost to update…
Military paycheck, need to stretch each dollar wisely.
Any experience out there? Many thanks for your time.
