  1. Do Mooney aircraft have life limits? For example, the F-18 was designed with a life expectancy of XX hours, however there is are service life extension programs to get them an additional XX hours of service life. Does the same apply to GA aircraft, specifically Mooney’s? Yes, I understand Mooney’s are not flown as aggressively as a Hornet and there is not as much stress being induced on the airframe. However, there are a number of Mooney aircraft that are 50+ years old and I have seen some airframes advertised with as much as 7000+ hours on them which leads me to this question. Obviously
  2. @Skates97 there is a website called www.airportcourtesycars.com that can also help. I haven’t used it personally, but some folks on another forum have used it with success.
  3. @carusoam - just about all East Coast flying with maybe one or two trips to the West Coast. The 45 minutes is not a limit, it is currently the longest one way flight we have done. No bladder issues on that short of a flighA nice J was the original thought, but as you say, the prices are ticking upward.
  4. Old guy, you are not being too nosy, between the three of us, we amount to about 560 lbs. I am the guy who what if’s everything and trying to get the most bang for the buck. In all actuality, the bladders will most likely not last as long as the fuel tanks. We haven’t really tested it as I am currently renting and most of out flights have been fairly short with the longest being about 45 minutes one way, so looking for a machine that will increase the distance travelled in the same amount of time.
  5. Looking for a M20C/F/K owner in the Tidewater area (Norfolk, Chesapeake, Suffolk) of Virginia that would be willing to take me for a flight and maybe a $100 hamburger. I have not had the opportunity to see a Mooney up close, let alone sit in one. I have been lurking here for a while and quite honestly cannot decide on what flavor fits my needs...I guess I really need to define my needs to narrow it down, but would like to consider all options. Budget is TBD, but initially looking at keeping it under $100K which probably puts the K out of my price range. I am a low time pilot (85 hours)
  6. Thanks George! I will definitely look you up!
  7. Anyone planning to attend the AOPA Fly-in at Bremerton, WA or know if the Mooney Ambassadors will have a tent? I am a low time pilot (PPL) who has been lurking the Mooneyspace site for about the last 18 months. I have recently moved to Bremerton, WA from Chesapeake, VA, courtesy of the Navy and being on a ship is not giving me as much flying time as I would have hoped. Dreaming of eventual ownership, right now I am relegated to rent and build hours until the time is right. I have become very interested in the Mooney aircraft, although I have yet to see one up close. I am pretty conte
