  1. I'm always a bit gun shy about talking about things like this...
  2. Wait a minute! My J has curtains!!!! Mason, a couple of other things you need to consider for insurance purposes... How many total hours do you have? that might make a big difference. I started in a 4 way partnership in an Ancient Cherokee 180c and built up my hours before investing in our Mooney. I had over 300 hours and my insurance wasn't terrible with the J.
  3. It has gotten great reviews so far. I've not seen anything negative. Lots of info on YouTube. I have no experience with the device nor do I know anyone that is using it though.
  4. I have the dual mag system in my "J" and had one fail two years ago. In addition to the gearbox in the accessory box if you have a plastic gear disintegrate inside the magneto could take both of them out. I actually think this is more plausible for a failure scenario as well.
  5. My plane didn't leave the avionics shop until the week after my annual expired. My AP that does my annual got the ferry permit in a matter of hours, this was November 2020 then he came by the avionics shop and signed off on the permit and I flew to his shop 20 minutes down. The avionics shop, the AP shop are all in Mississippi and are under the Memphis FISDO.
  6. I had my -D mage rebuilt by these folks, two years ago. https://aircraftaccessoriesofok.com/ They are in Oklahoma, not exactly SouthEast but not West Coast...
  7. I'm sure this has long been taken care of, but if you're reading this in the future... see if you can find someone local and fly them with you to your new plane and then fly back home with them. This is sort of how I did mine. I am PP only and the weather didn't cooperate for me to get the transition training done in Texas. So we picked a day that I could fly VFR back to Memphis with him and then I paid my transition CFI's room and board and flight back home.
  8. Do you have any idea if there will be landing fee's? I can't imagine how grueling that flight must have been... Good job with the Parrots and kid!
  9. 175 Miles to go 18 miles... I wonder if he actually got to land at the others or just low pass...
  10. I'm not intending to steal this thread but I've thought about this numerous times. My main goal was to mount on the rear tie down to help me better understand my flare and landing. But, I have a rear tie-down unlike any I've seen it's like a 3/8 rebar almost. Do any of you have this type and what do you you use on it if anything?
  11. So... I guess my question would be, how much would it cost to upgrade my KAP150 to a KFC150 and enable me to upgrade to this touchscreen... (which kind of bothers me, i want buttons and knobs on an AP for turbulence purposessss)
  12. Ryan, I haven't read through the entire thread but what I did read was great information. I was in your price range two years ago when I bought my J. If no one else has mentioned it, Jimmy Garrison is your friend contact him and he will put you on an email list with what he's got coming in. This is how I found my J. https://www.gmaxamericanaircraft.com/
  13. Ha! My Dad flew 141As and I have gray hair... I have kids and grandkids in Greensboro, I've been known to fly over there from time to time. I have a "J".
  14. Aircraft Heaters has a device specifically for the cabin (costs less than the Hornet). I just purchased a small ceramic heater (Vornado) for under 20 bucks. It has a high/low/fan option, physical on/off switch and a safety switch on the bottom that turns the unit off if it gets knocked over. I got it today and I've been running it on low all morning. It is not hot to the touch and I think it will do fine. I'm going to plug it in to an extension chord that will be plugged in to a low temperature sensing outlet (Thermo Cube) I've also got a Twin Hornet II coming, hopefully tomorrow for the engin
  15. It just looks like pure fun! A lot like a motorcycle... they could share the same hangar! I like this a lot better than strapping an engine to your back. I'm too old for that these day's anyway. This I could do.
