First Multi-Engine Flight – 1959 Beechcraft (BE95)

Flew a 1959 Beechcraft (BE95) yesterday. Known as the “Cadillac of General Aviation”, it held true to its name. With the mix of a wide, comfortable fuselage (high drag) and two 180hp engines (high thrust), you end up with a ~140 knots cruise speed (kinda slow for a multi-engine airplane). This was my first multi-engine flight and it was loads of fun. We did stalls, steep turns (which were really smooth in this airplane), an emergency descent, and a simulated single-engine failure, which was really fun. It lands really nice too.
