    Update: Me & N201DY

    Beautiful plane and congrats on the retirement. Some people get a watch but I'd say you've done it right!
  2. If you're coming down through Augusta Ga I can suggest a few places to stop for fuel or food. Congrats on your new ship! Post some pics when you get a chance.
  3. There's a 78 J on Controller that meets most of those reqs for $95k and a couple others at ~115k.. I would add a decent Autopilot to your list of things to consider and ADSB just to avoid the headache. Well under 100K??--if you find what you believe is a fantastic deal on a 70s model J with your reqs, I would venture to say there are some reasons why the deal is sweet. You can find a really nicely equipped C/E/F for under a 100k but the nicer the equipment and lower time the engine, the shinier the paint, and the cooler the seats...even those will creep up nearing "well under 100k". I set minimums for what i wanted...had to be an F or J--family trips and the little extra room would be nice--Engine time under 750-800 ideal / avionics IFR certified because I'm flying family and weather doesn't wait for vacation days to align (430w / adsb out / autopilot 2axis) / decent interior and paint(to me these are almost fixed cost, ie, I want new seats and things 10AMU, avionics and engines are always a variable in my head and my wallet....new GTN750 sells for 15ish but installation well it could be, it may be, it should be...how long will i be without a plane(being youre going to want it for training)..1 month-8 weeks--?? This is why I believe folks will say find one with what you want in it...saves you the headache, downtime, and unforeseen costs. I then priced out different configurations and decided on what i would and wouldn't budge on. Then wait to find the plane that matches your needs and wants. Hint--probably wont find it on normal sites but would definitely suggest emailing @jgarrison to get on his incoming list and network like crazy because someone somewhere has a gem sitting in a hangar they just haven't come to terms with selling yet...but they will and you want that deal.

    Realistic Maximum Value for 1976 M20F

    YES! I should have threw that in there for sure.

    Realistic Maximum Value for 1976 M20F

    Simple way it seems to me would be to VREF it in it's current condition and post upgrades keeping in mind it's not accurate on either side but would provide a ballpark. Values for nicely equipped planes are on the rise from what I've watched over the past 24 months and the demand (lack of inventory) might just be a reason. It's your plane and your investment...with 20SMOH you have time to focus on the panel/paint/interior it seems to me while still putting away $16-17/flt hour for overhaul. Just the new guys opinion..
  7. Signed up. I'll be sending the payment via snail mail this week. Looking forward to meeting y'all.

    Mooney Caravan XXII Registration Now Open

    I'd love to go and I'll be looking at the HKY event to get setup! A bit nervous to be honest, I've listened to OSH on liveatc for the past few years and my blood pressure goes up just listening!

    On man there quite a few good places these days. You come into town let us know!

    We are frequent flyers into FHB/SSI/BQK loads of good places to eat down that way!

    I just missed the Cullman meet up so hopefully we can get a group together again soon. I did KEUF trip for my commeecial building. Cheap fuel and Sams kitchen can't hardly be beat!

    @neilpilot I'll take you up on that! Wife is a diehard NC bbq fan but I think she just needs some good Q! @Jim Peace you talking about Spruce Creek? We actually looked at houses in there about a year ago. Still haven't ruled it out...couple years until the boy graduates and we are going to move either to the lake in North Ga or down to FL. Family is all In Palm Coast.
  14. Hello all, I've made just a couple posts recently but have been lurking, reading, and most of all learning on here for about a year. I just finished up my transition training in my 76F. Definitely a difference from 172s and Pa28s! A great flying plane with all the cool 201 mods, nice avionics 530w-gtx345 for my adsb, FlightStream 210 to incorporate the iPad of course, 830 engine monitor, new engine(65hrs now), recent annual and clean bill of health during the prebuy from an MSC. I have some ideas for future mods--interior refresh and panel overlay would be nice. I try to fly pretty often having just completed my CSEL, I'm rolling into CFI now but the family and I like to find good places to eat! Looking forward to seeing more Mooney's as we travel around the South and with the speed of the Mooney who knows how far we will go for good seafood or BBQ. Cheers Frank Augusta Ga
