Michael S Beechcraft B58 Baron

How did you get started in aviation?

I took a flying lesson in 1994. From then on I was hooked.

Why did you choose TKS?

I met someone who had TKS. They said it was great, so I installed it on the A36 Bonanza in 1996 and loved it. Then I got a Baron which had boots. 11 years ago, I got TKS when I repainted and got a new interior for the Baron. I always wanted to put it on, I was just waiting for the right time.

What did TKS do for your mission?

It has allowed me to do missions I would not have, and gets me out of icing situations where boots did not do as good of a job.

Have you had any memorable experiences with TKS?

Having to go to 18,000 feet to get out of icing, yeah. I had a dangerous situation with boots but never with the TKS.

Have you flown in aircraft with other ice protection system(s)?

Yes, my Baron had boots. TKS is a gazillion times better.
