    Long Mooney trip to South America

    Spectacular trip. Thanks for sharing your link.
  6. I added a three blade on my C and would never go back. Smooth when ( Properly ) balanced and truley helps a C climb performance on hot days.

    Avidyne marketing methods...

    I did not have a 430 / 530, just a good old GX65. I look around tried them all and decided on the IFD 540, 100, 340 full install. Definitely no regrets. I know many others that have done the same.

    Why a Mooney?

    No such thing, I have built and flown several experimental aircraft ( checking limits ) above that altitude......

    To spend or not to spend

    I’ve had my 70C for many years I know it’s a solid airframe 20 plus years in my heated hangar. As the years passed by and as I had the (cash) I’ve done many upgrades spreader out. The engine, prop, bladders, speed mods, windows, paint , interior, S-etc 30, gpss and just last year I put another 30k into my panel, this time to get ADSB compliant and finally get a wass gps plus some other goodies. I did this all for me! It’s what I,like to do. My wife and I love the little C, great IFR cross country and very economical to operate. I’m almost done building my 200hp RV -7 and originally thought I’d sell my Mooney once completed but it’s been such a joy to own and fly cross country we decided to do the upgrades last year and keep it.

    M20F prebuy - Chicago area

    Strange. Northwest Flyers does get very busy at times but I never had a issue calling Gene or Skip, rarely it takes a second call the following day.

    Thoughts on this M20C?

    May be a really nice plane, only way to find out is to take a look. The price wouldn’t scare me a bit if It’s a actual 9 or 10.
  13. Sound good, let me know.
