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.
