  1. Wow that is a beautiful paint scheme. Looks like it is going 215 standing still!
  2. Lance, I have big time second thoughts about parting with the Mooney. It has been such a great plane. A real pilot’s plane. I have never enjoyed flying flying anything as much. My decision is based upon the practicalities of my situation. I have two planes and am trying to get myself in a position to retire in the next couple years down to St augustine where I have only one hangar. The Mirage seems to be the best of both worlds between the Mooney and the PA32, plus it has Pressurization and FIKI and cabin space that will allow us to travel the way we want with our pets and friends. When we
  3. Nick good to hear from you. Hope all is well. Where is your new plane from? Coincidentally, I am putting mine up for sale as well, along with my Saratoga. Buying a PA 46. Never thought I would be doing that, but such is life! The bravo is fabulous. You’ll love it.
  4. Joe Cole of Cole Aviation, a MSC, holds both the IA and ATP, and many other ratings.
  5. Kevin is a buddy of mine. Known him for years.
  6. Also curious as to whether the quotes were for 1 million (or more) smooth limits or split limits on the liability coverage.
  7. Dan Kendall, who founded DLk, received factory training at Mooney. He has since retired, and I do not know whether anybody at that shop, which I understand is now owned by his daughter, has Mooney specific training.
  8. I’ve used Cole for years. That does not sound correct. I don’t know what you mean by “major work” , but it certainly seems like there is always a considerable amount of it going on there. I’ll ask Joe about this next time I speak with him and report back.
  9. What happen with the fuel pressure gauge reading if you leave your boost pump on? Does it hold steady?
  10. I paid 65K for my factory reman back in 2016. I am assuming that an overhaul by a good shop would be somewhat less than that.
  11. In case you don’t have it, the number for the company is 972-247-7498. I had to send my annunciator panel back for overhaul a few years back. As I recall, circuit board(s) had to be replaced.
  12. My dad had a couple of O’days back in the 60s and 70s with the centerboard and tiller and little outboard evinrudes that you wound the pull cord on the little pulley on the top. Brings back memories.
  13. I ponder this all the time. I think I would do the same as this pilot in keeping the gear up if I didn’t know the integrity of the turf. Looks like the plane will fly again too.
