  1. Thanks for the clarification. When I saw the miscellaneous maintenance number I kinda blacked-out and didn't think about how much flying that would be. [emoji23] But...it's a much larger number than I was expecting. Regarding your maintenance expenditures, it looks like 2007 was a particularly rough year. Sorry to pry, but what's that $11,238 for? It's isn't labeled. And it seems there have been years where your annual inspection has cost much more than you've planned for. Would you say that is common through the fleet? Or particular to the K? Or does it just depend on the airplane? I'm n
  2. William, Thanks for posting your numbers. I've been looking for something like that. I have a question regarding the line item in the "Ops Cost Summary" tab that's labeled "Other Misc. Maint". The value you have there is $66.90. That number multiplied by your total operating hours of 1595.6 (Hobbs end - Hobbs start) yields a whopping $106,745 spent on miscellaneous maintenance over the last 3 years. I must be missing something there. Where are you getting the $66.90/hour operating cost for miscellaneous maintenance?
  3. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/maps-me-offline-maps-gps-nav/id510623322 I've used this for international travel when I want maps but don't have data. It's easy to pick and choose which maps (states) you want to download. Only downside is it takes up a lot of space. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Another thing to consider: insurance is going to be expensive. Your low flight time and the fact that you plan to use the Mooney to get your instrument rating are things that will give the actuaries pause. I don't see how you get that airplane flying for less than $40k...and that's rolling the dice on not overhauling the engine. Do you really want to pour in money for paint, avionics, and interior all to be carried behind a suspect engine? It's just been sitting too long. And you stated the last annual was 2005, but last flew in 2011? That leads me to believe the previous owner wasn't terrib
  5. I'm sorry, and don't mean to poke holes in your plan, but $117,000 seems low for what you want to buy. I'm at the beginning of my search and I'm not seeing many well-equipped Js at that price point. Full disclosure: I'll be a first time buyer and simply don't know what I don't know. Best of luck! -Will Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
