  1. 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...
  2. 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! Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award The Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award is the most prestigious award the FAA issues to pilots certified under Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 61. This award is named after the Wright Brothers, the first US pilots, to recognize individuals who have exhibited professionalism, skill, and aviation expertise for at least 50 years while piloting aircraft as "Master Pilots". A distinctive certificate and lapel pin is issued after application review and eligibility requirements have been met. Upon request, a stickpin similar in design to the lapel pin is also provided to the award recipient's spouse in recognition of his or her support to the recipient's aviation career. Once the award has been issued, the recipient's name, city and state will be added to a published "Roll of Honor" located at https://www.faasafety.gov/content/MasterPilot/RecipientList.aspx.
  3. This is my favorite oil refill spout. https://www.amazon.com/Hopkins-10107B-12-FloTool-No-Spill/dp/B0000AXRH0/ref=sr_1_2?crid=2LULDZ2O5HYQK&keywords=oil+spout+for+motor+oil&qid=1568987991&sprefix=oil+spout%2Caps%2C160&sr=8-2
  4. Very nice! Garrison is a class act. How did you like flying into and out of Kestrel Airpark? You have a great platform to create your forever airplane! Thanks for the updates and have fun!! That is one traveling machine!!
  5. This is what I carry. Fits well between the front seats of my Ranger. https://www.aircraftspruce.com/pages/ps/fire_yh3r/a344tc.php My Check Airman told me aircraft fire extinguishers are for people fires, not aircraft fires!
  6. Tell us more about your "K" model. Which engine, avionics? Pictures please!! Inquiring minds
  7. This the closest I'm getting to Burning Man!! Thx Rocket @gsxrpilot for the video!!!
  8. Thanks, hope that takes care of the oil mess.
  9. Don't wish to cause too much of a thread drift but how many AMU's to add the intercooler and wastegate? I'm looking at a 231 @ all american and may be an option down the road. Thanks!
  10. Way above my pay grade. Welcome aboard and congratulations on a great career. Fly safe!
  11. Check the North 40 by Friar Tuck's. Many of us have left. The Mooney Caravan assembled at KMSN last Thursday, due to weather we got into KOSH Sunday. It's a long haul staying the entire time at EAA Airventure. There were 62 Mooneys Sunday, not sure how many are left.
  12. Thought about that but the trays would have to come out also. That may be above my pay grade and the shop is not located on my home field. After reviewing the estimate I'm throwing this one out. I have contacted a shop in Denton for an estimate. I may abandon the 530W and look at the Garmin 175 with two G5's and keep the two MAC 1700 Nav /comms. Thanks!!
  13. Ok, thanks for the information. This is a no-go if I can not keep removed radios that were mine in the first place and was charged labor for removal and not given a fair credit for the radio. Doesn't pass the smell test.
