  1. The recommendation for “Maneuvering speed or cruise speed, whichever is less” comes from the FAA publication “Aircraft Flying Handbook” chapter 9, Maximum Performance Maneuvers.
  2. Thank you so much. This is exactly what I was looking for. I will check them out Tuesday and let you know how I did. Maneuvering speed (127 knots) was unworkable.
  3. I am practicing commercial maneuvers, lazy eights and Chantelle’s, in anticipation of the commercial check ride. The POH says that the maneuvering speed for the M20M is 127 knots. This speed makes it very difficult to achieve 5 knots above stall speed at the apex of the maneuver and getting back to 127 knots at the completion of the maneuver. I would appreciate any insights into the realistic, optimal speed / power settings to initiate these maneuvers.

  5. I tried that. The problem is clearly the card. Thanks
  6. Thanks, I very much appreciate the effort. These cards are hard to find.
  7. It would appear that my current taws terrain data card (010-10201-21) for my Garmin 530W is corrupted or out dated. My Garmin card reader will not detect it. I believe I need a replacement card. Any thoughts or help as to where to find one would be greatly appreciated.
  8. I am almost embarrassed to ask this question. I have read everything that has been written regarding a "Hot " start for the Bravo engine. The problem I have encountered twice in the last month is an embarrassing engine stall after landing on the ramp with the throttle closed and mixture at full rich (landing configuration). I have been unable to restart the Bravo engine despite nearly every hot start machination I have tried. Any advice is welcome. Top Heavy
  9. Ron, I looked behind the panel and could not locate the fuse. Any thoughts on where it is typically located? I would think it would be immediately proximate to the pin connector to the unit itself
  10. Thanks for the "heads up" regarding the in line fuse. I will take a look at it tomorrow. That would be a gift from God if that is the problem.
  11. Thanks. It looks pretty easy to remove. Maybe, I can get an idea about the extent of the problem by visualizing the circuit board. it does not seem to have it's own circuit breaker. Do you know if it's power supply is tied into the same circuit as the autopilot?
  12. I recently had what I suspect was a power surge which caused a failure of the HSI as well as a blank screen on the KAS 297b (altitude preselect). The HSI issue was corrected with a rebuilt module but the KAS 297b screen is still blank. I have no problems with the King 150 autopilot. It passes the test and works fine. Could this be something as simple as a bulb in the lighting system for the screen? I would greatly appreciate any insight for troubleshooting this problem.
  13. Thanks for the information. It is exactly what I needed to know.
  14. The Oxygen pressure gauge on my Mooney Bravo reads a constant "0" despite the fact that the tank is fully charged and there is flow through the cabin outlets. This occurred immediately after the broken Oxygen control cable was replaced. The mechanic says that the gauge needs to be replaced. Assuming that the gauge is truly defective as opposed to a kink or some other misadventure during the process of replacing the cable which runs near the high pressure tubing to the gauge, does anyone have any leads as to where to find reasonably priced replacement gauge? Also, will it be necessary to empty
  15. Thanks, I will get a mirror and take a look at that area. That is just the type of information I need. Will get back to you tomorrow.
