  1. @ESPN168, I'm based at Burlington with a J, if you would like to see mine (it's not for sale) and ask questions, I'd be happy to take you up for a ride. I haven't flown to the Caribbean yet, but I have done multiple trips to Florida in it.
  2. You could start by trying to sell it here in the Aircraft Classified section.
  3. Being Canadian I'm not sure, I just pay the annual fee, but my understanding was that foreign registered GA only get billed if they land in Canada. If you care to do some investigating, the answers can probably be found here http://www.navcanada.ca/en/products-and-services/Pages/service-charges.aspx
  4. Nav Canada bills a quarterly service fee to foreign registered GA (Canadian registered airplanes are billed annually). You can fly as much as you want in a quarter and you still pay the same flat fee, which would explain why you don't always get one if the flights were in the same quarter. I believe that currently the quarterly charge for aircraft under three metric tonnes MTOW is C$16.80. We Canadian owners pay C$67.20/year.
  5. Oh look, you took a picture of my plane! C-GWED is mine!
  6. I transitioned from a C182 when I bought my J. I found the transition to the Mooney to be no more difficult than when I transitioned from a C172 to the C182. I think the Mooney is a delight to fly and I feel that it is easier to land than the Cessnas - at least I think my Mooney landings are more consistent than my Cessna landings.
  7. The Sigma-Tek engine cluster gauges have been removed from my 1990 J for installation of an EDM900. Transducers included. ****Oil Pressure transducer is sold****** Condition: Fuel quantity, CHT and amps/volts all work well. Fuel pressure on rare occasion will stick at zero after engine start, but a tap on the gauge will get it to register and it works fine after that. Oil pressure also will stick at zero after engine start but will spring to life with a tap. It seems to happen any time the airplane has not run for a week or more. Oil temp gauge needs overhaul, I wouldn't trust it. Make me an offer...
  8. My J is in the Doc's shop right now for her annual. Like every year, I really hope that there is nothing wrong for his eagle eyes to see, but if there is, I'm glad that it'll be fixed!
  9. I'm sure that @M20Doc could answer your question about any legal implications to having a Canadian shop do the annual on a US A/C.
  10. It's maybe a bit further than you would want to go, but the M20Doc's MSC is at CYKF (Kitchener, Ontario), 1 hour by Mooney from the Detroit area. I doubt you could find a better person than Clarence to look after your aircraft, he does a great job for me.
  11. I had mine replaced with Whelen LED's as the old ones died. The left one last summer, the tail this spring and the right one a few weeks ago. I had no issues with them being mixed and matched.
  12. It's nice to see it outside with a prop on it!
