"Beechcraft Baron GBSR, 6 seat, XM weather, 285HP"

C-GBSR is the faster of the two Barons. Powered by two Continental IO-520 piston engines produces a cool 570HP (285HP per side). At this point, BSR is our secondary trainer, primarily being used for multi training. Is is fully IFR certified, with the more traditional avionics including; two VOR/ILS receivers, an adjustable card ADF, DME, and two VHF radios. This is supplemented by a Garmin 496 with XM satellite weather, a tool that is extremely useful in providing situational awareness.

"Pulling up the latest METAR before radio range, accessing fuel prices on route, avoiding hazardous weather; XM does it all"


In the near future, GBSR will be temporarily leaving service at Compass West, as she will be undergoing a full avionics upgrade. The changes are sure to cause many a pilot to stare wide eyed and open mouthed in anticipation.
