Beechcraft 95 Travel Air

beech95travelair


When the Model 95 Travel Air was in its prototype stage in 1956, it was known as the Badger. It entered production in 1958, with a factory list price of $49,500. In the 10 following years, the Travel Air was subject to a few major changes. Engine power output remained at 180 on all models, with carburetors being replaced by fuel injectors in 1964. In that same year, the cabin was stretched an additional 20 inches. The factory price rose, in 1968, to $153,500 list, including avionics. Only 14 1968 E95 model were built. In all these years and changes, the basic performance figures of the Travel Air differed only slightly. Top speed varied only by a mile per hour or so, cruise rose from 195 to 200, and range and altitude held constant. A limitation of the Travel Air to some pilots was the low single-engine ceiling of 4400 feet.
