  1. Just always remember, when approaching mountains, go over them at a 45 degree angle, just in case you encounter wind sheer. You can safely turn out of it. So many people without mountain experience go straight over and can't do a 180 which leads to problems. Good luck with your flight and have a safe trip!!

    Bad Shoulder and Johnson Bar

    I do the Mooney dip. After positive climb I tip the nose down at the exact same time as I release the gear and start the swing motion. It is really simple with very minimal effort. Once locked, I resume normal climb out. Hope you start feeling better!

    Pre-buy Inspection Problem List

    I had to walk on this plane. unfortunately, the engine is past TBO (over 12 years and sat a lot in a high humid area) it was too much of a risk. it cant pass an IFR..has a pito leak + a few other issues with alt reporting and compass heading is 40 deg off. There are a few issues with radio and audio panel still going on. I asked the owner to take care of some of the issues that had come up and he refused. He is a very nice guy...pay close attention to logs..he did a lot of work on it himself. He has a friend who would sign it off. Way too many risky issues so I passed. It will need sb208 done as well which is pretty expensive.Be sure to pull the side panels to inspect for corrosion. Good Luck!

    Any A&Ps near KTRL?

    Hi Don, Thank you so much for your reply. Unfortunately I just can't seem to find anybody to go check this out so I am just going to fly out there and take it to a shop myself. Don Maxwell, did not do the last few annuals, I would feel so much better if he did.

    Any A&Ps near KTRL?

    Hi guys, does anyone know of an a&p near Terrel Tx to have a look at a C for me? I am located in Nevada and want to hire someone to look at a few items before I fly out there. I would love to do a PPI, but unfortunately the owner lost his medical and has nobody to fly the plane. it just completed an annual in Feb. It also just had both tanks sealed at Don Maxwell. Thanks so much!

    A&P recommendation in bay area

    There is a really good shop that just opened at Columbia for avionics. Only one experience with them and they were fantastic. I also go to Troy (owner) at Carson Aviation in Carson City Nevada which is a full service shop. Excellent rates and very good service. I have never been disappointed with them or their prices. I am thinking they were right around that $85 hr but maybe they just gave me good rates because I am a return customer. Good Luck!

    First Annual

    As for radio noise close to towers. I spent months trying to solve that issue. It got so bad that I couldn't make out what tower was even saying. After looking at both radios, antennas and the wiring, It turned out to be panel mounted usb ports. Luckily I had a switch to turn them off and the problem was gone.

    dynon in Mooney's

    I spoke with Dynon yesterday. They said they have had lots of requests for Mooney's, but it is up to EAA as they are the owners of the STC.
