THE ABS SAFETY FOUNDATION for the American Bonanza Society. Hosted as part of the generous bequest of Richard “Dick” Swenson in memory of Sam James, a founder of ABS’ Beechcraft Pilot Proficiency Program (BPPP).


The American Bonanza Society serves Beechcraft enthusiasts by sharing valuable safety, technical and educational resources, and by promoting interaction among and advocacy on behalf of its members. ABS is the premier association for Bonanza, Baron, Debonair, and Travel Air enthusiasts, with 9,000+ members who own, fly, or have a sincere interest in these Beechcraft models.

Because of this common interest, we have banded together to share information and experiences involving the operation and maintenance of Beech-produced aircraft.
