Development of small-engine aircraft Beechcraft 35 Bonanza began almost immediately after the Second World War, when, despite the fact that the production of aircraft of this model began in 1947 year, continues to be produced and aircraft to date.

The aircraft is one of the most recognizable in the world, and the main factor for this is the unusual V-shaped tail, which not only increased the aircraft's maneuverability, but also provided it with good aerodynamic performance.

On board the small-engine aircraft Beechcraft 35 Bonanza can accommodate up to 6 people, including one pilot and five passengers, allowing the aircraft to be operated not only by households but also by many international carriers. Interior of the aircraft is large enough that, in turn, does not create a nuisance even when overcoming distances in more than 1,5 thousand kilometers, although for the most part, the aircraft is designed to carry people on a range of up to 1 thousand kilometers.

The power plant of the base production model Beechcraft 35 Bonanza presented piston engine Continental E-185-1 165 developing capacity in horsepower, and allows you to accelerate to a speed of the aircraft in 230 km \ h. (Maximum flight speed of the basic version of the aircraft).

The aircraft has good maneuverability and is able to quickly accelerate to the rated speed of flight, at the same time, due to ease of construction, the aircraft is not required The length of the runway - Beechcraft 35 Bonanza can land even on unprepared terrain. Despite the large number of modifications created, the most popular is the basic model - a simple and inexpensive to maintain, it is quite safe.


Beechcraft 35 Bonanza


In 1949 year, almost two years after the start of mass production of aircraft Beechcraft 35 Bonanza, American aircraft manufacturers have presented an improved version - Beechcraft A35 Bonanza, distinctive features of which was a new and improved interior with adjustable chairs, as well as an increased maximum takeoff weight of the aircraft. During production 701 aircraft of this version it was built.

Model Beechcraft B35 Bonanza was introduced in the year 1950, in this case, the fuselage of the aircraft was somewhat strengthened, instead of the old power plant was proposed to operate the same, but more reliable piston engine Continental E-185-8. With the conveyor for the production of aircraft descended 480 this modification.

Introduced in the year 1951 version Beechcraft C35 Bonanza got a new engine Continental E-185-11 185 power in HP and new avionics. Due to the change of powerplant, flight performance of the aircraft have improved significantly - the plane was able to accelerate to maximum speed in 242 km \ h. The release of this version was discontinued after the conveyor Aircraft Corporation descended 719 aircraft.

Modification of Beechcraft D35 Bonanza, appeared 1953 year, had increased the maximum weight and vzlёtnym next minor technical changes will not affect the flight performance of the aircraft.

In 1954 year, it was a version of Beechcraft E35 Bonanza, get a new piston engine Continental E-225-8 225 power in HP, as well as adapted to the needs of the pilot's control panel. During the production cycle was released 301 aircraft of this model.

Model Beechcraft F35 Bonanza received some design changes, in particular, at the rear of the cab appeared on the additional window on each side, which in turn provided the passengers with good visibility. About a year later, this same version was equipped with a motor Continental E-225-8 power in 225 hp, which is why there was a modification of the Beechcraft G35 Bonanza.

Version of small-engine aircraft Beechcraft H35 Bonanza was introduced in the year 1957, in this case, the new model has received a number of significant improvements, in particular, a piston aircraft engine Continental O-470-G power in 240 hp, reinforced structure of the fuselage, as well as a new interior trim .

Model Beechcraft J35 Bonanza had a power plant with a fuel-injected Continental IO-470-C power in 250 hp, automatic piloting system, as well as improved aircraft management tools. The release of this version was launched in the year 1958, and all the time production 396 aircraft of this modification was built.

Version Beechcraft K35 Bonanza presented in 1959 year received new fuel tank with increased capacity, as well as an increased maximum takeoff weight.

In 1960 year it introduced a new version of the small-engine aircraft - Beechcraft M35 Bonanza, having a new wing profile, which in turn increased the aerodynamic performance of the aircraft, thereby improving flight performance. Among other things, the plane was completed with a new avionics system.

In the model Beechcraft N35 Bonanza has a new power plant, represented by a piston engine Continental IO-470-N power in 260 hp, it was modified exterior design of the aircraft, and in addition, in the airplane, new fuel tanks, thereby allowing to take on aboard more fuel and make air travel more than two longest. With the conveyor Beech Aircraft Corporation descended 280 aircraft of this version.

Established in the year 1961 version Beechcraft O35 Bonanza wore only experimental - aircraft manufacturers have tried as much as possible to facilitate the design of the aircraft, however, worsened maneuverability of the aircraft are not allowed to mass-produce. The issue was completed after the creation of the first model.

Model Beechcraft P35 Bonanza is a modified version of the Beechcraft N35 Bonanza, was the only exception of the changed control panel and updated seating. Since 1962 years 467 units of this version were built.

The Beechcraft S35 Bonanza modification was equipped with a new power plant including a Continental IO-520-B piston engine with a capacity of 285 hp, received an increased maximum take-off weight, and also underwent a number of changes in its design - the aircraft fuselage was lengthened and slightly modified ...

Introduced in 1966, the model Beechcraft V35 Bonanza received turbocharged Continental TSIO-520-D power in 310 hp and a number of some of the elements of a modified aircraft, in particular, the whole windshield, the new interior design.

Modification of Beechcraft V35A Bonanza was an adapted version of the previous model, while, aeronautical engineer managed to reduce the drag of the aircraft due to the creation of a streamlined cabin. Among other things, the plane was completed with new avionics means.

Model Beechcraft V35B Bonanza - the final version of the aircraft Beechcraft 35 Bonanza, get a new power supply system, new interior, as well as a series of still some minor changes. Version was presented in 1970 year, and throughout the issue is somewhat different, however, in some models has not been translated.
