Scott M. – Beechcraft F33 Bonanza TKS Testimonial

6th November 2017

Scott M. lives in the West and flies throughout the United States and Mexico. He owns a 1975 Beechcraft F33 Bonanza equipped with inadvertent TKS Ice Protection, which he has been flying for over 10 years.

How did you get started in aviation?

Always had a desire to fly but had to wait until I was about 30 to fund the lessons.

Why did you choose TKS?

TKS is insurance to get rid of the ice if I ever encounter unexpected icing conditions.

What does TKS do for your mission?

I will fly in marginal weather using the TKS system to get on top of any potential icing and again when descending.  My Bonanza is turbo normalized by Tornado Alley and I typically fly around FL200 – FL210.

Any truly memorable experiences in icing with TKS?

The first time I used TKS, it was amazing to see how it took the ice off.
