The price range of a pre-owned Baron 58 is $75,000 to $750,000, while the price of a Baron G58 can go as high as $1,600,000. The price often depends on the year of production, accident history, and the forces of demand and supply.

The Baron 58TC/P was introduced in 1976. Production of the Baron 58TC model was discontinued in 1984. The Baron 58P was more popular than the 58TC and sold almost three times better. But, the Baron 58P was also discontinued in 1985. The Baron 58 was the most popular, with a total of 2,124 built and 1,610 still in operation.

Risk Areas

Single-pilot piston aircraft rates start at 1% of the hull value for experienced pilots with over 1,000 total time. The rate increases to about 2% of the hull value for less experienced pilots or riskier operations.

Risk areas also include insuring transitioning pilots with no Multi Engine license yet or those with low experience and less than 500 hours total time. As of 2023, there are still 2,472 Baron aircraft in operation, so there’s a lot of data to guide underwriters on how to properly rate the risk.

Claim History

The twin-engine Baron 58TC/P is safe and reliable. About 80% of Baron-related accidents are a result of pilot error. Other causes include poor visibility, weather, hangar rash, prop strikes, runway incursions, and runway overruns from unstabilized approaches.

The non-standard placement of the landing gear switch in the Baron 58 models was another cause of accidents. Beechcraft placed the landing gear on the right of the throttle quadrant while the industry standard placement was at the left. This led to confusion for new pilots; however, this was corrected in 1984.

The Baron 58TC was also criticized for the design of the actuators. This was due to a crash caused by a reverse installation of the actuators, thus preventing an emergency landing. Beechcraft was criticized for not designing the trim tab actuator in a way that it could only be installed in the correct way. This industry standard is referred to as the Murphy proof.

Safety Features

The Beechcraft Baron is generally known to be one of the safest lines of multi engine piston aircraft. The Beechcraft Baron 58TC is powered by two turbocharged Continental TIO-520 engines that do well in most atmospheric conditions. The Baron 58P/TC are certified for flight into known icing (FIKI) and can endure certain weather thanks to their deicing equipment. The newest type is the Baron G58.
