  1. Well first and foremost, welcome to the Mooney Club and congrats. A friend of mine and I just bought a Mooney a little over a week ago. The first plane we looked at, Don did the pre-buy and did a terrific job! I also want to give kudos to Dave at Air Mods, which is where we bought our Mooney from, and also Brian at Orion Flight in Quakertown, PA. Dave stated that Brian did a very thorough pre-buy, and I conclude. Don, Dave and Brian are all Mooney experts in my book!

    Thank you DXB! Yeah I was surprised too. It has the flush rivets. This one had a gear up in the late 70's so that might be why the rudder is different. Thank you for the information on the C. I always love hearing how things were done. I can't wait to get the engine monitor, etc put in. The game plan is to put the engine monitor and an ADSB compliant Transponder in this year, then put in a Garmin 650 gps next year. Hopefully after that, just maintaining a while. It is a great airplane. It flew very stable and was a thrill to fly home. I am happy to be a part of the club. Let me know if you have any tips, etc!

    Thank you Brian! You were a huge help. Dave took care of most of the sqawks! He complimented your thoroughness on the pre buy. Thank you so much! You have been terrific.
  9. I want to let everyone know, I had a terrific experience with Dave at Air Mods. Bought a Mooney M20C from him, and had a terrific experience. I also want to give a huge thanks to Brian at Orion Flight for the pre-buy. Both were class acts and I would send anyone over to do business with them. Dave took time to show us every aspect of the plane, including a check list of items he hand wrote about it and wanted us to know. The flight was from N87 to KLWB to KEET went off rather smooth. The plane was as advertised, great running, great airplane. Even watched a beautiful sunset over the mountains of West Virginia. I wanted to give kudos where needed, and I feel Dave and Brian both deserve it. It was a pleasure. Now time to enjoy the new Mooney, and enjoying my first Mooney purchase. Thank you everyone for all your help!
