This beautiful Beech 95 Travel Air is an eye-catcher at air shows and fly-ins and both an impressive classic and a convenient family cruiser! It was built as a competitor to the Cessna 310 and the Piper Apache, Beechcraft chose to reuse the name Travel Air, which was the predecessor to Beechcraft: the Travel Air Manufacturing Company.
The design of the Beech 95 Travel Air was based on the successful single engine Beech 35 Bonanza: it was fitted with the vertical stabilizer of the T-34 Mentor military trainer and two four-cylinder Lycoming O-360 engines. Its wing spar and the thicker gauge aluminum on the leading edgewere borrowed from the large Model 50 Twin Bonanza. The landing gear was also taken from the T-34 Mentor, which was built to train pilots for future aircraft carrier landings.
The Beech 95 Travel Air was powered by two Lycoming O-360-A1A engines at 180 horsepower (130 kW) at 2700rpm each. With 75% power, the Travel Air cruises 200 mph at 7,500ft.
