  1. Just an uncommon plane with relatively speaking no manufacturer or owner support compared to an RV. If you didn’t build it good luck finding a mechanic with experience working on one. Whereas Mooneys and RVs are a dime a dozen. Heck Id bet theres more RVs flying than Mooneys today. I built a -9A, 2014, one of the top 5 in the world i’d bet. But now flying a Super Viking and loving it. You should hop over to the Super Viking Forum. Might find an undervalued amazing machine in your price range. Had her loaded up at gross weight this weekend with the family climbing out at 1000fpm + at 88 degrees F. and cruising at 160 knots. Not to mention the superb handling!

  2. I sure miss the experimental I built, maintained and inspected. Maintenance costs was almost nothing. Fuel, oil and gas, maybe a couple tires. Plus hangar and insurance. Lots of good Flying weather in Texas. Here in the upper midwest a plane without FIKI is pretty much useless as a reliable means of business transportation for half of the year. A Mooney is essentially a four seat RV in terms of performance, efficiency and cost. Good choice You’d be better off driving for business than a T-18. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. My RV-9A Insurance $100k hull was almost half the cost of my M20C insurance $50k hull. $1000per year vs. $1800. That was a few years ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. isn’t it nuts how small the HSI display is on a G5 compared to a standard 3-1/8” HSI. the actual round dial looks like half the size. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Valid points, I suppose it’s most likely these situations that will cause a gear up. An IMC approach also comes to mind, diligence to use a checklist will help. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I am curious how someone can become configured for landing approach speed without lowering the gear. It seems necessary for me to to lower the gear just to help get slowed down. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  11. I copied every page of all my logbooks back to 1968 to 11x17 paper, (so two pages would fit without being cut off) then scanned to a single PDF per book to email. 7 books in total. Took an hour tops. And a bonus, now I have digital and hard copies for safe keeping. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Call Kevin at NAFCO 800.999.3712 low rates long terms, no payoff penalty. I don't finance toys but it can be useful in the interim between buying/selling and getting funds in place. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Based on this my C is a good bargain! Make me an offer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I got an opportunity to purchase back the RV-9A that I built a few years ago, so I did.[emoji106]. Now the Mooney will need to go[emoji25] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
