  1. I don't pay much attention to the ASI entering the downwind. Habit has me at mid field downwind irregardless of entry to be at 120 mph indicated, pulling up a tad like Yetti if needed to get the gear down in the E, I might glance at the tach. Down to 100 mph by threshold down wind, two pumps of flaps, 90 mph base, 3 pumps on final bows the nose down,... I do plan to be at pattern level 1/2 mile out and slowing depending on traffic.

  2. I had about 100 hours, PA 28, C152 172 182 and Be 35. Insurance required 5 dual and 10 solo. Learned from my IA/AP/CFII who had quite a few hours in a G based here. It was a non issue in the M20E. Got my instrument 2 years ago and still learning. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  3. I wish Vetterman would get certified for repairs. Clint does incredible work. But I think the STOL/Vans crowd keep him too busy as it is. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  4. This is how we do hamburger runs in Nebraska. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Tailwinds Bob, you will be missed. Jan Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  6. Nice job! Good to know there's another CFII with Mooney experience close by. I may still be current but far from proficient since this covid thing. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  7. Yup, I've done the 3 bolt thing also. Pulling the cowling off and pretty sure my IA and I saw it at the same time. "This is why we do annuals" he said. Said a few hail Marys and ckd the torque and alignment on all of them. Luckily nothing got bent out of shape, but noticed a rub on the fiberglass lower enclosure that should have been my early wake up call. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  8. Sweet! Where are you based at? Looking at options for IAs since mine went all pilot on me and flying for Silverhawk now. Although, I bet he's not flying much now... Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  9. We have 3 Mooney's based at CEK, I'm waiting it out for now, but once this Covid-19 is over, I'm always looking for a safety pilot. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  10. You can get the new doubler from lasar, I had mine replaced when I bought it. I was shocked when the previous owner mentioned how much the little piece of aluminum cost. Pretty sure you could fabricate it, but should last another 50 years. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  11. My buddy has a "C" with the 185. Great plane, but always wondered how hard it would be to manually pump that fuel pump and fly the plane should the mechanical pump fail. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  12. I am in, I did buy a bunch of the projector bulbs that match the old style, but have not gotten around to trimming the reflector like the originals did.
  13. My Uncle Jack (through inlaws) owned Forney Aircraft which built a few of those before Mooney put the single vert stab on it. Forney Museum in Denver has one on display. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk
  14. I heard from my buddy out there, it was pretty bad, totalled his pickup and wife's jeep. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
