  1. When it comes to backcountry flying; usually the concern is getting out of the strips you can get into, as most planes take more Distance to takeoff and/or clear any obstacles, than it does to land. Go to YouTube and search for piperpainter, he flies a Mooney M20C into some pretty precarious spots. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. See you at Starbuck this summer? July 4th weekend fly-in... And then there is Manville, ND in the fall for their hog roast Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Is there a simple cover plate that can be purchased to cover the coffee grinder hole? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. I guess I'd rather fall through the ice in a low wing plane than a high wing plane! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. In a Mooney I would stick to plowed ice runways. I've landed on lake ice, it's similar to grass runways but harder. If it is a plowed runway make darn sure to watch the low wings on the banks. Here is a photo from Red Lake, MN this weekend. It appeared nice, but was very rough, even in a pickup. There are definitely better lake runways than this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Last I flew it was a couple years ago but according to their website 201DD it is still on the line and they do keep their website current. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. I'm not sure "holding it hostage" is the way view this. However they have a responsibility to ground the airplane if it's not airworthy. I agree with the approach in the first post but I can see how the seller might be nervous having a MSC look over the plane if it's previously been annulled elsewhere. another set of eyes per se. Similarly, my plane had and annual at LASAR before I purchased it, to the tune of $12k. (Some of that was discretionary). But I am still nervous about my first annual with my local mechanic, who is another experienced set of eyes. Your approach is the best way to go about it. The seller will just have to cross their fingers! I don't see a need to sign any contracts though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  13. Nice, RV-10, Would love one of those, just not in the cards for me. I previously built, flew, sold an RV-9A, Great plane - N803DK. The Mooney is somewhere around 3300TT and 250 SMOH. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
