Aircraft History

The Baron family shares its ancestry with the Bonanzas and includes the same landing gear and cabin as the six-place Bonanzas. The Baron 58 is a 55 model with a 10-inch fuselage stretch and 300 hp Continental engines. The Baron 58 is one of the more popular light twins, both for its utility and its image.
 
The cabin, although a little narrow for some, has comfortable seats, good visibility and easy loading through its aft door, plus an over-the-wing pilot’s door. As far as performance is concerned, the Baron 58 has a good blend of payload and speed. The Baron 58 also has reasonable short-field performance. Over 1,800 Baron 58s have been produced.
