    Nothing

    Our sun is half way through its life cycle while the Andromeda galaxy , a million times larger than our Milky Way is , confirmed by Hubble , to be on a direct collision course. Galaxies and planets are spinning light years away and their speeds and distances are increasing into the frigid darkness So, if you want to know man kinds future, it is a very easy to answer. Nothing Now, if only those Ovation tires would squeak on landing.

    I Win the Slow Learner Award

    80 on final, Full up trim, half flaps, speed brakes extended, And the infamous shock disc Mooney bounces disappear into the ether. (Speed brakes optional, can do without, just a habit.)

    Ownership costs

    Or as John D. Rockefeller, replied to a fellow partier aboard his huge magnificent yacht back in the 30"s: When queried about the cost, he replied, "If you have to ask you can't afford it".

    Grounded... Repair Advice?

    Before you fly it out for repairs, You might ask the question a twin pilot asked me, a few years ago, when he taxied his right wing into a steel canopy post affronting an FBO. Gotta get back to Houston...Anybody got any Duct Tape? Not sure if duct tape was ever replaced or not, but his take-off was uneventful.

    AOPA and Mooney

    No worries mate, Fords and Chevrolets get a lot more publicity than Ferraries and Aston Martins. (V12- 220 mph-1.4M) Any bias noted is a Non Sequitur.
  6. When I looked into a similar purchase some years ago I was told by a reliable source, there are no landing gear parts available. After hearing this, I kept on walking down the beach.

    Experienced my first spin yesterday

    If anyone needs a stall, spin ,inverted loop et.confidence builder, just Google, U-Tube Svetlana Kapanina. One of her quotes, "The procedure itself is very easy, to score a 10 is the challenge". Now to settle the Ford Chevrolet argument, did you neutralize the stick or push the stick forward? The military teaches, fast forward, while most civilian CFI"s seem to neutralize. Best,

    Beat the sales tax

    You gotta love the " casual sale" work around. Kinda like selling a used lawn mower to a neighbor. Was not aware of this one at all. As for me I went with a Delaware corp. and all is well. Understand in some states the swamp water may make this avenue unpalatable, but worked for me, no sales tax paid. Best,

    "Medeco" Ignition Switch

    Same problems with my Ovation. Mechanic replaced my turn and push conundrum sw. with a turn only switch, no more push and no more issues. Much more user friendly, not sure where he purchased it, but am sure you could find with a couple of inquiries. Best,
