The Beech Travel Air was produced for ten years from 1958 to 1968 by Beechcraft. There were 720 units built which at the time was considered the main competitor to the popular Cessna 310. Past Beechcraft models were heavily used as a base and inspiration for the Travel Air. The design itself lends itself to the Bonanza. The Twin Bonanza
wing spar was used on the Travel Air. The original 1958 planes used twin Lycoming O-360-A1A engines putting out 180hp each. This allowed the aircraft to cruise at 200mph at a height of 7500ft. There were four variants developed during the Beach Travel Air production life cycle. The B95 and B95A had a longer cabin plus a fifth seat. The 1963 Travel Air D95 has a bigger window at rear and a longer nose which resulted in increased baggage room. Redesigned instrument panels was another improvement on this variant. The D95A has a wingspan of 37ft 10in, an empty weight of 2555lb,
and a maximum weight at takeoff of 4200lb. The climb rate of the Beech Travel Air D95A variant is 1250 feet per minute, and the service ceiling is around 18,100 feet. See our large inventory of Beech Travel Air for sale below.
