    Full Fuel Tanks

    always top off the tanks and visually check; even if I fuel the plane myself. when it comes to fuel, Trust no one.

    hey just thought about something, isn't the "big pull" the same way we're taught to lean an engine in primary training ? lean till rough then a turn or 3 until smooth?

    Annual ALL DONE Time to Fly

    well, I have to say I've been blessed, the guy who put the plane back together after it's last gear up, is absolutely exceptional. every mechanic I've taken the plane to comments on how absolutely clean it is. both annuals were no squawks. I Only changed the sparkplugs and had an oil change. seriously, if someone could convince the guy to become a general mooney mechanic, we'd all be better for it.

    Annual ALL DONE Time to Fly

    yeah, vegas, will probably be my last choice. Great flight but hard to beat $200 tickets. man that is an awesome summer trip, haven't been to mackinac since I was a kid? is there an airport on the island ?

    QUESTION: M20E Vs M20F

    VFR, currently working on finishing my IFR. was playing with the long range numbers from the poh, worked great. Until the wife found out about flight aware, i'd sometimes make a sneak stop at kdua.

    QUESTION: M20E Vs M20F

    I do kdwh to keye multiple times per year, would think kdto to keye would be a one tanker. I generally burn a bit less than 9 gals/hr on the trip @ 9500-11500(hot in texas) ROP. I'm def investing in the Monroy long range tanks, 88 gals in an e model is gonna be ridiculous range.
  14. Second Annual Down, no squawks. time to finish up the ifr and find some places to fly. Maybe another trip to Vegas ? Thinking about trying to get atleast 5 states in this summer

    QUESTION: M20E Vs M20F

    just thought about it, if you are only 5'8, due to the way you sit in a mooney, you'll easily be able to fit 4 passengers in an m20e, the person in the backseat probably won't even touch the pilots seat.
