Confusion set in. How were we to sort through the myriad of aircraft available and which one was right for us? We had owned an A36TC years ago….knew we wanted another Beech …but which one? To add to the difficulty we were looking at aircraft, on line, from our part time home in New Zealand. We are both pilots and we knew we needed help in finding the right Bonanza. We found Darryl through his ads in the Beech Society newsletter.

Darryl made finding a plane very pleasant. He is meticulous to detail and very thorough in his search. He listens to what is important to you in an airplane and is in touch almost daily. We enjoyed Darryl’s relaxed professional conversations. He checks the prospective planes out thoroughly before negotiating an offer on your behalf. We personally believe that he will find you the best aircraft, suited to your requirements, at the best price. He knows the current market and what adds and deletes value from a Bonanza or Baron.

Once a price is negotiated he conducts a thorough pre purchase inspection. He had our S35 engine partially torn down to check a potential problem. After purchase Darryl flew us home and provided a wonderful few hours of training. Darryl is not only generous with his time but a very experienced pilot as well.

We hope we see Darryl again and would love to do some more training with him. We would recommend him unconditionally to help you purchase your new Bonanza or Baron. Anyone that is considering using Darryl may contact us at
