Beechcraft CT-134A 'Musketeer'

| Not sure why someone said that the airframe life is only 5,000 hours on a Musketeer. There are still schools all over the U.S. that have these in their inventories with over 10,000. There were also no problems with the wings since they have a very very large I-Beam for a spar. Anyway, they are very sturdy and economical but slow aircraft. |

| I flew the CT-134 (Musketeer 1) at Portage. It usually cruised at 112-115 knots. The main criticism of this aircraft was its construction. There were problems with the bonded wing and its airframe life was only 5000 hours.
Presently I fly a Mooney M20C that also sports a Lycoming 0360 engine. It is better constructed, more efficient and much faster.

| I was an owner of a BE-23A Musketeer at one time. The cruise speed was typically around 115 - 120 mph. Indicated range figures appear to be about right. It would typically burn 8.5 gph (US)and held 60 gallons. Useful load was approximately 950 pounds, depending upon configuration. |

| Dear Sir/Madam,
I am the owner of a Beechcraft Musketeer 23. I see the performances
of the CT 154. My aircraft does not perform at all like the one
spoken about as a CT154. Please advise and let me know what the truth is.
With many thanks,
