  1. Dennis, Could you post a panel pic of your GNC355? Do you have an autopilot to couple up with the magic? Thanks!
  2. Take a look at the emergency gear extension panel to make sure everything is in the correct position. Where in Central Texas are you located? Steve
  3. Congrats on getting the C to Texas. 52F (NW Regional) may have some hangar space available. Also highly recommend Airspeed Insurance if you are shopping around. Call Parker Woodruff, 214-295-5055 (office), Parker@airspeedinsurance.com. Parker also checked me out in my C model when she was new to me. Steve
  4. Thankful we didn't fly back into this wind! 701KTS ...... YeeHaw!!!
  5. Done.... A wealth of Mooney related information! Thanks!!
  6. I agree that Class C is a little different than Class B. With Class C I would call the TRACON and advise of the transponder malfunction to give them a heads up what my intentions are. Class C airspace deals with General Aviation traffic much more than the Class B folks. With Class B and my home field being on the edge of the airspace I personally am more cognizant of local traffic around several small airfields in close proximity rather than diverting my attention to talk to the big city approach control when they could care less if I'm under the floor of their airspace. Thanks for the qualifi
  7. The "declare an emergency" statement was made facetiously. In my 45 years of flying civilian, military, and 33 years of airline flying I like common sense. So just being a primary target with a non transmitting transponder you would call ATC on an already congested frequency and high workload area just to tell them your transponder failed and your heading to your home base airport? I disagree, I think I'll announce my position and intentions on CTAF at my home field and get the transponder taken care of. If an explanation is requested from the FAA then my actions as PIC would be submitted alo
  8. Do I have to declare an emergency when returning to my home airport under the edge of Class B airspace when my transponder failed enroute? Personally I'm staying underneath the floors and not bothering anyone to get home and figure out what happened to my transponder. What would you do?
  9. Go to: www.TheMooneyFlyer.com to download and read your December Edition of The Mooney Flyer in either PDF or FlipBook versions. Great information!
  10. Have you guys had any issues with the 660 not auto connecting to the GTX 345 transponder ? Every time I start up I have to go to the setup page and manually connect the bluetooth to my transponder. BTW, I have enabled the BT reconnect function on the 345 but no joy to date. Any nuggets of wisdom would be appreciated...
  11. Congratulations Bob and Mrs. Belville! When you look back you probably remember that solo flight like it was yesterday! Glad I got to meet you at this year's Mooney Caravan. Well done sir!
