Aero-TV: Aviation Type Clubs - The American Bonanza Society

Tom Turner Addresses the Success of the Bonanza Type Club

Founded in 1967, the American Bonanza Society has more than 10,200 members in 39 countries around the world.  Created as a shared forum for Bonanza, Baron, Debonair, and Travel Air enthusiasts, the Society serves as the primary source for model-specific information, education, and camaraderie. 

As one of the oldest type clubs in existence, ABS has provided support for Bonanza model lines for over 42 years, offering a wide-range of member technical services and education initiatives.

Pilots can participate in both the Air Safety Foundation (ASF), as well as the Beechcraft Pilot Proficiency Program (BPPP), which provides recurrent training both in the classroom and through certified flight instruction.  In addition, the Society’s website provides a searchable database of “Tech Tips” and “Shops & Mechanics Recommendations” to allow members to share information and experiences involving the operation and maintenance of the Beech-produced aircraft.

Due to the organization’s longevity, as well as the continued success of the Bonanza model lines for the last 62 years, ABS is one of the largest type club associations in the country.  In contrast to other type clubs, the extensive membership allows for full-time dedicated staff support. 

With its history and sustainability, ABS continually offers administrative guidance to other type clubs regarding outreach and education, particularly the development of training programs much like ABS’ own Beechcraft Proficiency Program.  Tom Turner, Manager of Technical Services for the American Bonanza Society, sat down with Aero-TV to discuss the role of type clubs within the general aviation community.
