Bonanza N200TE

In the fall of 2016, we completed our search for a larger, faster, comfortable traveling airplane and purchased N200TE, a 1986 A36 Beechcraft Bonanza with lots of upgrades.

In particular, the previous owner had installed the following:

  • Tornado Alley Turbo (TAT) engine modification
  • Tornado Alley Oxygen System
  • Osbourne Tip Tanks (20 gallons per side)
  • Garmin G500 Primary Flight Display & Multi-function Flight Display
  • XM weather
  • Garmin 530/430 GPS COMs
  • Garmin GTX327 transponder

Since then we’ve also upgraded the GPS COM units and transponder to be 2020 ADS-B compliant and removed the vacuum system, installing a Garmin GAD43e in place of the KI-256 attitude system.

New equipment:

  • Garmin GTN 750 GPS COM
  • Garmin GTN 650 GPS COM
  • Garmin GTX 345 Transponder
  • Garmin FlightStream 510
  • Garmin GAD43e
  • Sandia Quattro standby

It’s first annual included a bit of extra maintenance (they always do!) but we’re looking forward to taking her on several trips in the Summer of 2017!
