  1. Soooo how much should I expect to pay? I don’t think the question was actually answered? Lol thanks.

  3. Donated 2/20... still see ads but it’s not a huge deal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Curious when the ads stop after donating? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Curious what you guys have experienced or would consider a fair cost to install a JPI900. How much time would you anticipate it being in the shop? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Keep them coming!!! I want to thank every person who has posted photos of your beloved birds! I have studied each and everyone of them. I have looked at things you can’t imagine. I’ve looked at how your fasteners are holding down different pieces in different ways. I’ve seen minor details that will help my plane safer when it’s done. I’ve seen that no two airframes are identical. Similar yet different... if you have not posted photos please consider doing so. You may not be aware of how much help you could be giving to us class of 2019 rookies! Thanks again Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. In the photo Gsxrpilot was PIC of Lead while I rode along right seat, #2 Kiwi has Bucko right seat, Doc #3 and Matt was #4.... Sorry I don’t know everyone’s MS call signs just the names I just recalled from Saturday. It was awesome! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. If you have never had the opportunity to experience formation flying do whatever you need to do to get a right hand seat! Huge THANK YOU to Gsxrpilot and the guys who gave me the opportunity to ride along and learn more about controlling my Mooney in a few hours than I could have ever imagined. And that leads me into my next statement... I am sure someone is going to post about the “dangers” of flying in such close proximity. At first glance I can see why someone could be quick to judge but after experiencing the day I couldn’t disagree more. Everything from the preflight briefing and post briefing, to the coordinated landings, the reality is that training and learning to fly your plane at this level makes your skills honed to a level that can not be matched or learned in any other fashion. Again thank you for a wonderful experience! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. It would be kind of neat to make a list of Mooney’s owned by users of MS and the current status and photos... a friend of mine has a vintage car that is kind of exclusive. They have a club with everyone’s vin#’s in order from oldest to the last one off the assembly line... they have 45% accounted for. Pretty good considering the volume produced.

  10. Is there a way to put together a photo gallery that would have a persons profile name attached so if you like something they have you could reach out to them? Curious if anyone else would think this would be helpful? Jerrod Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. “Fisk” approach? I’m embarrassed to say I had to look it up. I was trying to figure out what FISK stood for... aviation acronyms is it’s own language. To learn it’s a city made me laugh out loud. You idiot I thought to myself... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for all the advice. I’m soaking it all up like a sponge. The idea of flying in formation makes the hair on my arms stand up. I was in the US Airforce and like so many others always dreamed of flying when I joined... never happened and I was a medic. Did my share of time in the sky but never behind the controls. Thanks again for all the information! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. As you all know I’m gearing up to put in a panel. I plan to go to Oshkosh to help make the decisions and have never been. I’d like to make plans. Any advice is always appreciated! Such as where to stay, how to get in, do you need to sign up? Do you need to make appts with vendors or is it just a free for all? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I just hung up the phone with Kirk at Dynon Avionics. Super nice guy I must say. He told me that due to the government shutdown and some other factors he does not anticipate a system being authorized for the Mooney’s until 2020. He speculated that they have 3 airframes ahead of the Mooney’s and that will take them most of 2019 to complete all the necessary requirements. He also mentioned that it was not the FAA’s “fault” if you will. He said the FAA has been willing partners in the endeavor and moving at a remarkably fast pace for the FAA but it just takes time to go through all of the required steps. I asked him what a 100% complete new panel system would cost. He of course couldn’t give me Mooney prices but shared with me the Cessna 172 typical costs. $26k gets you everything they make for the plane at this point. There were a couple items they don’t manufacture at this time so I would have to source an audio panel and other small things. He said installers for the 172 are quoting between 100-200 hrs depending on a host of factors. So estimate $10-$20k for installation. Just thought I would share. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
