Up to 48 Bonanza owners will attend an April 29 maintenance clinic sponsored by the American Bonanza Society at the Continental Motors Factory Service Center in Fairhope, Ala. It is the third time Continental Motors has sponsored the clinic.
Owners will have a chance to get their aircraft inspected by the American Bonanza Society and Continental Motors technicians. The four-day clinic features factory tours and is now an annual event.
“The clinic offers a comprehensive, highly structured visual inspection of the aircraft that serves as a second opinion service to enhance aircraft safety,” said Thomas Turner, American Bonanza Society manager of technical services. The inspection lasts an hour-and-a-half.
To register visit the Web site at www.bonanza.org. The American Bonanza Society conducts 11 service clinics around the country each year.
