  1. I flew to Greensboro NC earlier this year. Later in the day after my arrival a very powerful thunderstorm hit the field with some pretty large hail. I was in the area, so I went back to the airport to find the plane safety placed in a group hangar. The line staff had seen the storm coming. Sometimes you have to give the FBO and their staff the benefit of the doubt.
  2. Looks like a sale by a bankruptcy trustee. Owned by a member here at one time.
  3. Not everyone raves about Mooney Service Centers. And, no, they are not all created equal in any event. The good ones have their rightful place. For next year, as well as general maintenance issues between annuals, find yourself an honest shop that won’t nickel and dime you.
  4. I have been using a RAM yoke mount with Ipad cradle. https://www.rammount.com/consumer/in-air/airplane It puts the screen right in front of you.
  5. We have the Hartzell 3-blade on our C and actually took it to @Cody Stallings (in Arkansas, btw) for a dynamic balance. His testing indicated that it was already in balance. I have been flying it for over 6 years and haven't had a problem.
  6. You need a 337 for a major alteration... to your waistline.
  7. I’m not sure I would limit my choices to 1965 or newer with your budget. There is nothing wrong with the older models. But, here is something to consider: https://www.trade-a-plane.com/search?category_level1=Single+Engine+Piston&make=MOONEY&model=M20C&listing_id=2358771&s-type=aircraft
  8. My understanding is that the Pitch and Yaw Damper units are independent, stand-alone systems.
  9. The pitch system is is an add-on for aircraft with an existing (usually factory-installed) single axis AP. Most of the airplanes I have seen with them have the Century for the roll axis.
  10. Nice to have both of those if they work. Manual for the 60 PSS here: http://www.syracuseflyingclub.com/Docs/8439Z_Manuals/sys60psspoh.pdf
  11. In good company at Nashville Int’l
  12. My tool kit consists of a Leatherman and 2 credit cards. This saves a lot of space.
  13. So if you buy the LLC you would need to perform two levels of due diligence: One for the plane and another for the LLC. Lots of traps there. I have a lot of experience with LLC’s and would never consider it.
  14. 6 years out of annual? It’s a collection of parts. Value accordingly.
  15. IMHO, you need to expose your plane to a broader market. I found our Mooney on Controller. Trade-a-Plane is also good.
