Speedster scheme for Beechcraft Baron and Bonanza


Textron Aviation has unveiled a special-edition paint and interior scheme for its Beechcraft Baron and Bonanza piston aircraft. Inspired by former air racer Pat McEwen, the Speedster design is available for 2023 Baron G58 and Bonanza G36 orders.

McEwen’s red and white checkerboard paint scheme was a well-known sight at races where she competed during the 1960s and 1970s, and was featured in the company’s 2021 announcement of a special-edition 75th anniversary Bonanza.

The new special-edition Speedster models will feature the Radiant Red Pearl and Matterhorn White checkerboard exterior paint scheme, as well as subtle checkerboard touches throughout the interior, created to balance a modern design with a vintage touch.
