Small-engine plane Bay Super V is a modified version of the model Beechcraft Bonanza with a number of technical and visual changes produced as a result of optimization of the current model. Quite often experts are wrong in the model of this airplane, because really a great similarity with the original, and, expressed mainly in the V-shaped tail part, the inherent only a few models ever produced in the world since the dawn of aviation.

For the first time, the model of Bay Super V made its first flight in 1956 year, however, due to some technical features, aeronautical engineer had to make optimization design of the aircraft, as a consequence, the model was presented to the public only in the year 1960.

As with the original version of the aircraft, the aircraft Bay Super V enjoyed great popularity from direct customers, however, the release of the current model has been very limited - for the very production cycle was built only 14 planes - 9 aircrafts were produced on the territory of the United States of America, 5 and aircrafts were built in Canada.

On board the plane Bay Super V can accommodate 4 people, including also a member of the crew, thus, an aircraft capable of carrying out flights on distances up to 2253 km (maximum distance of the flight), which somewhat exceeds the capabilities of the original version, although the commercial distribution of the so- and has not received.

As a powerplant in the Bay Super V, two piston air-cooled four-cylinder aircraft engine Lycoming O-360-A1C are used, each of which is capable of developing power in 180 hp, which is quite enough to transport the maximum number of people over long distances, and besides , Thanks to a powerful power plant, the aircraft is able to accelerate to the speed of 351 km / h (maximum flight speed), which is significantly larger than the original version of this light-engine aircraft, which is also one and Z reasons for the popularity of the current modification.

At the moment, the operation of Bay Super V aircraft is practically not conducted - most of them are in museums in the USA and Canada, however, there are also operational versions on which people are transported (mostly privately owned).
