  1. I’ve had my Mooney serviced there since last year. Although they are a new MSC they have some pretty experienced Mooney mechanics from the prior MSC at KMYF. I am happy with their work and their responsiveness.
  2. This is amazing technology! Hopefully it will trickle down to the next generation of light aircraft (Mooney) avionics. While auto throttle, auto braking, etc. may not make it to our Mooneys a simpler autonomi / auto land system (w/o bells and whistles) that would instruct the right seat passenger to take certain actions (pull back power to X% / displayed hash mark, pull mixture all the way out, etc.) could still be very useful.
  3. I think this one will work better (since I believe that you are not supposed to charge through the GPU port): https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/elpages/portPowerCharger24ces.php?clickkey=6344 I bought it and use it regularly to run the avionics on the ground.
  4. I have a 201 so it's a simple IO360. I'd give them a call and see their expertise with that engine. Failing that, you might want to give Gibbs Aircraft Service Center - they have Lyle there who is an expert A&P who may be able to help. Good luck.
  5. Hi Gavin. Coast is the new Mooney Service Center at KMYF. Their mechanics came over from CrownAir after they shut down their maintenance department. They have great attention to detail and I have been very pleased with the quality of the work on my plane.
  6. I am not sure that would work. The instructor is individually the CFI (even if he provides services through an LLC) and has to sign the logbook/ endorsement individually. I think he or she would always have individual liability based on the sign off.
  7. I am so sorry to hear about Mark's passing. My sincere condolences to Mark's family. Mark's accident really shook me up and this sad closing after all he went through is just devastating.
  8. My leading edges and horizontal stabilizer have lots of chips and I asked around for recommendations. I found a really good painter and was quoted almost 3 AMU for repainting/ blending of wing leading edges and horizontal stabilizer. The painter usually touches up big jets and I have seen his work and it is flawless.
  9. Congratulations on a beautiful Mooney!! Can't wait to hear about your adventures!!
  10. The Airtel has a nice ramp and I don't believe they charge if you grab a bite at their restaurant.
  11. That sounds like my issue. Plane flies just fine - FD just dances around with no effect on flight.
