  1. Avionics upgrade

    You are correct, it is the AOPA give-a-way airplane from 2000. I like the avionics a lot less than I thought I would. I am comfortable with the 430/530 GPS's and have a 530 to put in. The MX20 has a lot of lines in it and I don't find it useful. I was looking at the PS7000 audio panel as it is supposed to be a drop in replacement for the SL15. This piece is more of a want than a need because after all it is only an audio panel, but I really don't like it that much, but it works. I was planning to pull the GX60 as I wouldn't need it but pulling it leaves empty panel space and if I can't get much resale for it, I might as well keep it for redundancy. The PS 7000 also has 3 com inputs so it should work for this scenario. Any idea how much the GX60 is worth if I pull it?
  2. Avionics upgrade

    I am planning a panel upgrade. Currently i have a whole stack of UPS avionics consisting of SL15 audio panel, MX20 display, SL30 nav/com, GX60 GPS, SL70 transponder. I am planning to replace the MX20 with a Garmin GNS 530W and replacing the transponder with a Garmin GTX 345 to comply with ADSB. I am considering replacing the audio panel with a PS Engineering 7000BT. Should i remove the GX60 GPS or keep it as a back up / 3rd com? Is there any value in the avionics i am removing?
  3. Reprinting "Those Remarkable Mooneys" book

    Hi Tracy - I am in the Detroit area and would be more than happy to fly over to meet you sometime. I can’t do it in the next couple of months though due to my schedule. Probably would be more fun for you when it is warmer anyway. A couple months ago, I purchased the Mooney refurbished and given away by AOPA in 2000. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I like it. How much do you have invested in it?

    Is this sold?
  7. Mooney Accident Analysis

    I find it interesting that the 2nd highest accident rates occurred at cruise. Generally, this is considered a pretty safe phase of flight. Any ideas what are the common causes during this phase? Fuel shortage perhaps?
  8. Mooney Insurance

    This may be a good educational point for me[emoji848]. Not sure what you mean by 1mil smooth. I was quoted 1mil combined single limit for an additional $400 / year. I opted for the cheaper option with 100k limit per passenger. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Mooney Insurance

    I have a million liability. I think it should be enough. Now sure what others thoughts are on this amount? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Mooney Insurance

    2K / year for 120k hull value for a J Model. I have around 450 hrs total and but only about 10hrs complex time with zero in type. I am instrument rated commercial pilot. I received this quote going through AOPA. They require 10 hrs transition training with a qualified instructor before I can fly solo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I would also recommend ARB. Ann Arbor is a great city to hang out in as well. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
