Bonanza Around the World

In 1994 the Author embarked on an around-the-world air race with several other private aircraft from a variety of countries in a race sponsored by Arc en Ciel. He flew as navigator and copilot with owner Bob Reiss in an A36 Beechcraft Bonaza prop-jet.

Some crews were serious racers, others participated for the sheer adventure of the journey — long over-water crossings, personal risks in hostile political situations and cultural differences.

Bonanza Around the World

No one anticipated seeing the stark human suffering in India nor the racism in Vietnam. The book is clearly written and Mr. Stewart pulls no punches in describing what they saw and experiences they had.

This was an extraordinary journey where strange alliances developed and political experiences were contradicted: professional and courteous Iranian controllers, contrasted with being denied access to Saudi Arabian airspace.

This is also the story of a remarkable and reliable aircraft, superbly engineered. The Author describes in detail the preparations for such a flight, and the many in-flight challenges they faced.
