Today, we continue to set the standard with the Bose A20 Aviation
. The headset provides acclaimed noise reduction, with a
comfortable fit and the clear audio you expect from Bose. It also
connectivity, an auxiliary audio input and priority switching.
A BETTER BONANZA
It cruises easily at better than 165 knots,
can carry six (provided at least two aren't large), and has a range of
1,000 miles. The pilots who fly it generally love it, and the pilots who
don't generally respect it. Samples can be found on the used market
today in decent shape and for less than $150,000 -- a price that
undercuts some higher-end LSAs. It's an aircraft with decades of history

But this is aviation. Pilots always want
more. Fortunately, the aftermarket for Bonanza owners offers many ways
In seeking today's most popular mods for the A36 Bonanza,
we found pilots who wanted more of the same -- changes that let the
Bonanza fly farther, fly faster, fly safer, and carry more in more

BUT NOT BUSTED
Deviations happen, even to the best pilots.

it from becoming a violation.
Even pros flying hundreds of hours a
