My cousin came down and spent the night with us Tuesday. He flies this airplane for a car dealer up in NE. Arkansas.
Piper Matrix.
His plane is an A36 Bonanza
I’m so jealous........

Use to have an Aztec twin engine turbo prop. Loved that plane, flew the hell out of it. Went all over the place in it. Then decided I wanted a boat more than the plane.

How well does the air conditioning work in the summers? I've flown a handful of single and twin GA planes and it's an expensive way to break a sweat when it's warm out. But man when the weather is pleasant there's no better way to travel!

The Ac works great, the Ac in the a36 bonanza works good as well. I’ve flown that plane on some hot days..

It’s usually pretty cool at 14000 feet, even in summer. The Matrix has a 24000 ft ceiling.
The ceiling on the Bonanza is around 16000 feet
You only need the AC at low altitudes
Most of the Bonanza flights are below 10000MSL
Still pretty cool that high in the summer.

Sure... when they jam the silver spoon in yer mouth and put the million in your bank account they throw in plane keys for all whities
Andy and I grew up in a small town in NE Arkansas. Our parents were lower middle class at best. We worked hard for everything we have. He and I have both built and sold successful businesses.
Believe me there was never a silver spoon.
Our parents left us very little as that is all they had.

Airplanes are awesome.
They make the world a smaller place..
Driving home to NE Arkansas takes about 9 hours.
In Andy’s Bonanza that trip is about 2 hours depending on the wind.
I can make the trip in a rented warrior or 172 in about 3 hours.
