    201 Schematic / Bad Avionics Relay?

    I had the exact same problem in my 1988 J. The relay part number is the same. I found one for $600 with no guarantee it would work. The local Mooney service center advised making sure none of the circuit breaker terminals were coming into contact with the buss or the relay. In my case, we found corrosion on the relay terminals. The relay bench tested fine. Since cleaning up the terminals and making sure there were no other contacts, it has been fine. Fingers crossed because the kit from Mooney to fix this costs $1200 to $1400, not including installation. JB

    I'm looking for someone who might be interested in riding shotgun from MI to Yuma for the Caravan Formation clinic February 1-4. If so, send me a message

    Avionics Master Relay

    The failure mode is, it sticks on. Meaning, when I put the avionics master in the "off" position, everything stays on and I have to shut them down individually. That means, after start up, they have to be all turned on individually.
  6. It is becoming more and more likely I will need an avionics master relay for my 1988 "J". Mooney no longer supplies that part. Any suggestions on where to find one?
  7. Choose what you like for descent from altitude. Try to keep at least 15"/2500 to keep the engine warm. For approaches, I set 13"/2500. With the airplane clean, the airspeed will settle around100KIAS. From there at the FAF, I lower the gear and first notch of flaps. This yields about 90KIAS for the final approach. Hope this helps. Try these numbers and adjust to what suits you best.
  8. Working Garmin aera 796 with yoke mount and two antennae for sale. Saw one on ebay for $1599. Will sell for $1200.
  9. I transitioned from a E to a J after a short ride with another pilot in the J and 10 hours in the E. The airplanes fly the same, don't worry about that. Spend an hour in the cockpit of the J mentally running through every move from start up to shut down. Find all the switches, levers etc., go over it several times in your mind. Mentally fly the mission. It's what the Blue Angels do before every flight. Then, go fly the plane. You will be fine. Jack

    Who's coming to Oshkosh?

    I'm planning to fly in on Monday the 25th and be at the Caravan BBQ on the 26th. Most likely I'll be parked on the north 40 somewhere. Tail number is N205VV. Hope to see you there.

    MAPA Safety Foundation

    Thanks for the great feedback. I'll plan on signing up for the session in Mansfield, OH in October.
  12. I'm considering enrolling in one of the three day MAPA Safety Foundation PPP programs. What has been your experience/s with them? Are they worth the time and money? Could I hire an M20 experienced CFI and accomplish the same thing? I would appreciate any and all feedback. Thanks, Jack46
  13. If you are interested in coming over to KBTL, Kellogg/Battle Creek, I have an '88 J/205 I purchased in February. I went through much the same decision process and am nuts about the Mooney. It will boil down to personal preference rather than width x height x length, etc. Jack
