If you haven’t already done so, I strongly recommend getting a clear sheet of plastic/laminate and drawing a line down the middle lengthwise and down the middle widthwise. It makes working with the Beechcraft performance charts a lot easier.

First Lesson on the Bonanza G36 can be viewed here:


I was always intrigued by the blue lever. So if I pull back on it on take off, will the higher pitch of the blade also increase the speed of the aircraft with the same amount of throttle?

If you do that on takeoff you would lose thrust. It needs to be forward for takeoff and landing approach. On cruise you typically dial in around 2400-2500 RPM.


Lesson 2:


Thanks for continuing this series. I’m mostly through the 152 lessons, can’t wait to catch up with live lessons.


Heads up, our next lesson will be on July 13th! We will be reviewing crosswind and landing in nonideal weather.


Today’s lesson:


Hello, i’m a fellow student following these lessons, and first of all i want to thank you again for this iniziative. Forder is an excellent teacher and allows me to have fun while learning many interesting things! :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

But i have a question regarding the leaning procedure and the G1000 (i play MSFS on xbox series x):
when i check the MFD on my Bonanza i don’t seem to have the “engine” softkey and therefore i can’t access the “stack of pancakes” to be used for leaning… Is this happening to anyone else or is it only me? can you please help me understand why? screenshot attached

Are you using the NXi G1000?

No i’m not, it’s just the standard… :frowning:

Yer that’s only in the NXi G1000. Or the default unit once SU10 drops

This is great. ForderLearntofly is currently flying through the FS ACADEMY range, which you can see very soon
