    Sabre Cowl Gen2

    Made sure with David, I was incorrect. He said "He will need to change it to a 201 style like Bob’s if he doesn’t have it already installed." I apologize for the mix up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Yes. We're more than a hop and skip away from Seattle. We're based at KMRN in western NC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    David would be the one to answer that more technically, but if I understood him correctly we think it will help in that area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Of course! We're trying to figure out scheduling, etc to find balance. We have a few things in mind but are always open to opinions! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    A&P payment

    We ask the customer to pay after the test flight. The biggest reason for that is to make sure the plane is fixed. Any other time, payment is due when we issue the invoice. We have a handful of customers that pay their invoice immediately, others a week or so. We have a small shop with a very reasonable shop rate. We charge less than the average car garage in the area. When a garage finishes your vehicle, unless otherwise arranged payment is due before you drive off. I think aircraft maintenance should be treated the same. Perhaps your mechanic can't afford it any other way? Sometimes, in our shop cash flow can be a little bit of a problem (we're not financially backed from other sources) if we don't keep a close eye on it. We're very open with our customers though, everyone to this point has been very understanding. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Medeco/Janco replacement keys

    Hey guys! I wanted to make a post regarding replacement keys. I'm sure this has been covered somewhere, but I've seen a few forums/posts by people who haven't had any luck finding replacements. If you have the number on the key CALL A MSC. For around $50 (including ground shipping) and an immediate to 3 week lead time you can have your replacement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Mechanics upcharge for parts?

    Most shops do. However, personally I do not agree with this shop’s business ethic. Our mark up is very reasonable. The only reason we mark up is to attempt a ‘recoup’ some of the cost on administrative work (searching for the part, contacting the vendor, etc). We do allow our customers to purchase the parts themselves (often with our discount) if they put the legwork behind it. This is one of those situations we really frown upon. Some shops have truly lost sight of what’s important and miss the opportunity to help someone out on a really bad day in the name of a quick profit. Sorry you had to experience this.

    Considering a Mooney...

    I've put a link to a copy of the LASAR checklist we use during PPI. Perhaps it will shed some light on what we look for when the planes come to us and be of help on your search. Let us know if we could be of any help to you. https://lasar.com/pre-buy-check-list/

    Pre Buy NC

    Oh my bob865. I hate that you had such a negative experience with us. You are absolutely right when it comes to our communication issue - starting in August until mid November I have to admit we were absolutely terrible. Around the time frame our records show we would have been closing on selling our home. I would imagine that our lateness would have had something to do with that or we had to immediately deal with an issue beyond our control. It is not a habit for us to be late when we're expecting a customer - especially to that degree. It is also important to understand that when performing a pre-buy we are not only working for the potential buyer but also for the owner of the aircraft. We did try to be as transparent as we could during that particular time - you have my most heartfelt apology that we were not more in touch. We are a husband and wife team with a small business, not a corporately owned entity - when something affects our lives it is felt through all facets. As much as we try to separate business from personal, we do sometimes fail. If you'd like to try us again, we'd be more than happy to accommodate you. We are working daily and diligently to resolve what is left of our communication issues. If your local A&P needs any help in becoming a Mooney guy, Lynn will be more than happy to be of service.
