  1. Does anyone have an update on the pilot or the suspected cause of the crash?
  2. Hysterical. My girlfriend doesn't even make it into the airplane. The moment I start talking about my airplane or flying her eyes glaze over and she is out like a light.
  3. Yes, I have seen the movie many times. A great film with exceptional aerial footage.
  4. I hope he didn’t bark at you for landing the wrong runway as the recording would have been embarrassing for him had he done so. The controllers throughout the crowded airspace in the LA basin are top notch especially at Van Nuys. Human error does creep in from time to time. He did not mention my landing 16R to me and although I looked for the “other” Mooney on the approach to the parallel runway I never attributed his call to me. There was another Mooney on frequency earlier with a similar N#. It’s great to make these videos as a learning tool. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I used a GoPro (sticky mount) and placed it on the ceiling. It works great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks so much. I am working on something now coming up in August. More to follow...
  7. Thanks for your comments. Actually, the camera is about half way down the cabin between the rear seats. Wide angle setting on the GoPro.
  8. I recently finished my transition training with Donald E Kaye and Mike Jesch. Two fantastic gentlemen and great instructors. I finally had a chance to shoot a quick video in my Mooney. This is one of my first solo trips since finishing my transition training into my 67 M20F. I love being able to safely fly my plane now. It is so rewarding to gain proficiency and confidence with these beautiful machines. This was a twilight approach into Van Nuys over the San Fernando Valley in the Los Angeles basin. You might notice that ATC uses the wrong call sign when apparently asking me to switch runways but all worked out great and they didn't admit their mistake and I didn't know of their request until I watched the video. There was also another Mooney on approach 10 miles out with a very similar call sign. The runway was clear and I learned something from the experience. Enjoy riding along with me in my 67 M20F.

  10. What make and model is that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Put it where it isn’t out of the way while using it. Up on the glare shield, up by the compass, up by where your eyes are going to be... unless you have really good instrument scanning skills and multi-tasking skills of a typical IR pilot... Best regards, -a- Thanks so much for such a detailed response. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hi everyone. I am considering installing an AOA indicator in my plane. I have seen some videos of glare shield mounted versions the pilot can flip/raise up or down when needed. I have also see panel mounted versions. I am looking for our groups thoughts and experience with AOA's and any pireps would be appreciated. What brands do you all prefer and why? Glare shield Mount or Panel Mount? Have you been saved from a potential stall/spin occurrence? Is it a distraction in the cockpit? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  13. Had my Mooney waxed last week. I guess that is called MOONSCAPING.
