Rick Dennee with his 1984 A36 Bonanza

It is virtually impossible to take a $100,000 airplane and recover the cost of a $15K paint job, or a $9K window replacement, or a $15K interior let alone an engine overhaul or avionics install... keep that in mind when you are negotiating the purchase of your next airplane.

For a person like myself who enjoys meeting people, loves flying, likes to travel, has a knack for business and knows a bit about aircraft ownership, I can't think of a better career than working with Bonanza owners and buyers.

To a first time airplane buyer, a picky shop can make your beautifully maintained airplane look undesirable by noting minor issues that can be fixed in less time than it takes to note the discrepancy on the inspection report.
