Why is the bonanza called the doctor killer?

There is a plane called a Beech Bonanza that is nicknamed “The doctor killer.” It gets this name because it’s a single engine plane, which attracts wealthy hobbyist pilots (like doctors) but it’s fast. This causes “the plane to get in front of them”, and for them to crash.

Are bonanzas turbocharged?

The Beech Bonanza has always been considered the very top of the line in single-engine aircraft, and the top of the Bonanza line for almost 20 years have been the A36TC and B36TC turbocharged long-fuselage straight-tail models, which remain in production to this day.

Which is better the A36TC or the B36TC?

The A36TC is a six-place airplane only if some of the six are kids. The B model does a bit better. Empty weight is about 60 pounds higher, but gross weight is up by 200 pounds, for a net useful load boost of 140 pounds. If you take the bonus in fuel, the B36TC will carry three adults up to 1,000 NM, or even a bit more if you throttle way back.

What’s the gross weight of a Beechcraft A36TC?

The A36TC has a gross weight of 3,650 pounds, which is 50 pounds more than the standard A36. A shortened three-blade propeller reduces tip speed, increases ground clearance, and reduces noise.

How many gallons of fuel does a A36TC have?

The A36TC was a modest success, selling a total of 272 aircraft in three years, but pilots, with some justification, beefed about the limited fuel capacity of 74 gallons.

Is the A36 a retractable single engine plane?

It remains the only retractable in the single-engine, six-seat utility class. The A36 was developed by lengthening the fuselage of the Model 33 and using the same durable wing, landing gear and Continental engine of the Bonanza family.
