    Anyone hurt by Michael?

    Ill be flying missions all day tomorrow for operation airdrop. We are bringing supplies from Gainesville (staging area) to Apalachicola (KAAF). Those folks need all the help they can get. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Operation Air Drop

    I signed up in their website today. My Mooney was scheduled to go into annual this weekend but I will postponing that for a week. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. In the aftermath of this we will need to see how bad things are in places like Panama City. As the home of the Mooney Summit, I would be up for flying supplies or anything else that can fit in my Mooney into that area. I suspect others would be willing to do the same. Something great if the Mooney community could support. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  8. Been there twice this year recruiting and have not heard of The Chicken. Sorry, not an Aggie. Care to enlighten me since I probably will be back next year? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Its been a good run

    Nice plane George. Making wife happy is essential in continuing our addiction to flying. As someone one who embraced circular patterns years ago I appreciated your brief on the subject. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Aveo engineering wing tips

    It’s hard to say. I have the sawed off wingtips on my plane and Aveo wingtips are certainly better from the aerodynamic standpoint. They should reduce induced drag a bit but also contribute to parasitic drag some. End effect may be nill with respect to speed but I would think you may gain a bit in climb rate.

    Another useful idea from Bob Kromer at Summit

    Your procedure was tested by Mooney (Bob Kramer) and the excess speed bleeds off too rapidly after an engine failure to be of any significant use. His flight testing demonstrated that he could not convert the excess speed to altitude as well as climbing at Vx/Vy/Vcc. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I think you are referring to the Accuflite. I don’t believe that works with your GPS. It works with a DG with AP output. Just set the heading bug where you like and it will fly that heading. If you want to couple to your GPS you need Accutrak. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    M20C Cabin Water Leak

    My cover extends forward of the windshield sufficiently to cover the avionics access panels. If it leaks there then yes, it will drip down on your avionics boxes and unto the carpet. Not good at all. Does your cover extend forward of the windshield? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
