The Beechcraft Bonanza V35, one of the aviation world’s greats, is now available in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The Microsoft Flight Simulator team is excited to announce the release of the Beechcraft Bonanza V35, one of the most distinctive, memorably stylish aircraft in the history of aviation. A favorite among aviators, this classic and sporty cruiser boasts performance to match its outstanding looks.
The Bonanza V35 is a single-engine, 4-seat, V-tail monoplane manufactured by American aircraft firm Beechcraft. The V35 is a member of the venerable Bonanza family, which holds the title of longest-running continuously produced aircraft line in history (1947 to present). The Bonanza V35 was produced from 1966 to 1967 and is recognizable over other Bonanza V-tail models due to a number of distinguishing features including a one-piece windshield and trapezoidal rear windows.
The Bonanza V35 measures 26 feet, 5 inches nose-to-tail, features a low main wing with a span of 33 feet, 6 inches, and has retractable tricycle landing gear. Its most distinguishing feature is its empennage: two planar stabilizers arranged atop the rear fuselage in a V configuration. The control surfaces at the aft of each V plane are called ruddervators, and perform—in tandem—a as a hybrid of a rudder and an elevator.
The V35 is powered by a 6-cylinder Continental IO-520B piston engine that delivers 285 horsepower and drives a McCauley 3-blade propeller. The aircraft cruises at 203 miles per hour, has a range of 900 miles, and a service ceiling of 17,500 feet above sea level.
The Bonanza V35 comes with ten liveries including an Xbox, an Aviator’s Club, and eight others from which to choose. Try it out today! It is available in the Microsoft Flight Simulator in-sim marketplace for $14.99. Stay tuned for more “Local Legends” aircraft coming soon. The sky is calling!
Microsoft Flight Simulator is now available for Xbox Series X|S and PC with Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, Windows, and Steam, and on Xbox One and supported mobile phones, tablets, and lower-spec PCs via Xbox Cloud Gaming.
