    Insurance woes

    Hank, if you would have had an incident in your friends plane, the open pilot warranty would have covered the damage to the plane and the insurance company most likely would have sued you to recover their losses (subrogation). Think carefully before flying an aircraft if you are not a named pilot with a waiver of subrogation, have a non owned policy or non owned clause in your policy.

    Cut out at idle

    HI Brian, Clarence is spot on here, and Mr. Mclures suggestion to have the fuel divider examined if following the SB doesnt cure this anomaly makes sense. Ill see you next month! Mike

    Florence evacuation

    last year during Irma, I was faced with the choice of "which" Mooney to move out of the path. A quick review of each insurance policy made the decision. CarolAnn Garratts historic 201 was re positioned to Memphis (Irma chased me there). Of the 3 planes, hers' was the only one that had hurricane relocation coverage, and then limit to $500 and the county must be declared a hurricane watch prior to moving. Fortunately, the other 2 planes fared well and Irma just busted up some telephone poles across the street from me.

    Luggage compartment door

    Seems like you should have caught that on a prebuy and had this issue taken into account on the price.

    IFR & Mooney Mag Compasses

    The real question is why ATC still issues headings vs track. I suppose there are one or 2 planes still in the "system" that are incapable of displaying track. but the same question can apply to altitude..

    Mooney in the water in Palo Alto

    So terribly sad. This makes 9 brothers/sisters we have lost since the last Mooney Summit. If anyone has verified contact info for the deceased's family and survivors, please PM me, or @Seth or @neilpilot the details. I will be off line a lot in the next week or 2 and they can make sure Alice gets the info so we can reach out with the Bill Gilliland foundation assistance.
