    Mooney spar design

    I’ve seen that SB elsewhere and I’m curious whether ERAU applies the Class A requirements unless it can be determined Class C applies. While flight training is considered by this SN as normal (Class A), reading the definition for Class B makes me hope ERAU uses the Class B intervals.

    Quick Cross Country

    I have a pic of the real guy and can get a pic of the bronze pretty easy.

    Quick Cross Country

    Was curious why somebody would go to Columbus. We went twice. First time was right before Thanksgiving, after our son had graduate Infantry Basic Officer Leader Course and completed Ranger Phase I. Went back for his Ranger graduation. Neat backstory: good friend of mine was cast as one of the bronzes for the OIF part of the National Infantry Museum since he was assigned to 3ID for the walk up from Kuwait and was on Ft Benning when they needed people to cast.

    Dynon Certified thread

    @aviatoreb as I read now what I wrote, I may have come across with the wrong intent. I’m anxious to learn these details, too as this type of solution can mean the difference to me between Mooney and an RV-10. Mooney is in my blood, but certified avionics are the thinner.

    Dynon Certified thread

    I don’t know the answer to your question. I would suggest a call to one of the two authorized installers to get a better idea. As with anything, you’ll have to figure out for yourself if the value prop is there. For some folks, it will be. For others it won’t.

    Dynon Certified thread

    Per their media kit, “Pricing for the certified/PMA versions of approved Dynon products will be the same as existing experimental/light sport products. The STC for Cessna 172 aircraft is priced at $2,000. “

    Thanks @bradp, @bluehighwayflyer, @Oldguy for the information and thoughts. I've been watching the J market for a while now and feel it's high for what's advertised. I guess it feels like a flip to me and without knowing it's history, recent or otherwise, I'm not going to spend anymore time on it..

    @carusoam I am not familiar with the STC and from what little bit of google fu I have, the engine shop hasn't had the best name in the business, but that may be related to business practices and not necessarily quality of work.

    Anyone know anything about this particular 201? Wondering if it's @amillet's old 201. AviationDB.net turns up a clean history, is it worth $119K?

    Mooney Girls Fast, not Easy

    I’ll second that.

    N370MM NTSB Final Report

    Good point. I’ve always considered FL180 (18000) as the bottom of the flight level since that’s what the military taught me. I know my hypoxia signs from multiple chamber rides, but still have a hard time justifying being above FL180 in an unpressurized aircraft. Not condemn anyone comfortable there, just my personal limit from having spent a lot of time in the 11K-14K band walking up, down, and around really big rocks with no supplemental O2
