Joel,

Over Christmas I flew a friend's A36 to visit family. We had a LOT of stuff and pretty well filled the airplane. With three people it meant one had to ride in back. Due to the corkscrewing in turbulence (and it was a high wind and turbulent trip) and the discomfort to the passenger in the rear, she chose to ride in one of the rear facing seats so as to be nearer the center of gravity. The Columbia does not corkscrew in turbulence as does a Bonanza.

From a passenger standpoint in turbulence a Columbia is more comfortable, for carrying stuff the A36 is pretty great, although the useful load is not all that whippy for a six place airplane (I'm used to a 210 where you can fill the seats and the tanks, which you certainly cannot do in an A36).

Warmest regards,
Rick
