    Mooney Lunch Roundup in Alabama

    I would love to but we are getting a JPI900 and a Stratus ESGi transponder installed. We are taking the plane to the shop this weekend to get the work started. Let us know the next time they have it. I would love to fly down and see it!

    Mooney Lunch Roundup in Alabama

    Hey Everyone! It looks like Cullman won the poll. Does January 26 work for everyone, maybe meet around 11:30 am Central? Hope to see a good bit of Mooney's on the ramp.
  4. @lienz, ours was long too! The only thing I can tell you is the good ones get bought up quick! The search is worth it, I promise!
  5. Sorry lienz, but it was at the connection point on it. Good luck on your hunt. I hope you find what you are looking for. We found one close to you, it was with Dave at Airmods! He and Brian are great people. Brian did our prebuy @orionflt and I am sure they can help you find a good one! Sorry but it is a nice plane but I run from corrosion at all possible, especially where the wing connects to the airframe

    Mooney Lunch Roundup in Alabama

    Hey Guys, sorry for not responding sooner, If possible can we move it to 1/26? Our plane will be in for some avionics upgrades. If not, I am sure we can find a plane to fly for lunch, unfortunately it won't be a Mooney unless @Brandontwalkercan carry Alan and I. I will leave it up to the Forum
  7. Hey Lienz, I wanted to reach out to you. About 3 months or maybe a little longer, we had this plane in pre-buy with Don Maxwell. Don did the pre-buy and the last thing he did was check the wing spar. It had heavy corrosion, to the point he couldn't believe it was being flown. I am unsure if the owner corrected it but shared that information with him. If you get it into pre-buy, make sure they check the spar to see if that has been corrected or replaced. Just an FYI, if you want further information or even a copy of our pre-buy on the plane from Don, let me know by emailing me on here. I will be happy to share that with you. The person in Alaska is a great guy, and hopefully he got the issue corrected.

    So far Cullman CMD is winning. We have until the 28 of December. Vote on your favorite place. I would love to meet some of the Mooney community

    Hey Everyone, sorry but I just added a poll. It closes on 12/28. After that, the most popular place is where we will fly to.

    Hey Everyone, we may need push back a couple of weeks for the meeting. Our Mooney is getting some avionics installed so we won't have it out of the shop by then. How about the end of January? Lets look at the last Saturday in January. Any takers?
  11. Hey Everyone, who would be up for lunch the first part of January. We had 2 places in mind, either Eufala (KEUF) or Cullman (KCMD) I am thinking January 12. Lets vote for the place and make sure that date works!
  12. 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!

    Mooney M20C Purchase Air Mods

    Hey Hank, look @Brandontwalker recommendations below. Lets plan on it! By the way Brandon, I am allowed in the Mooney fly in's now. Sorry everyone inside joke when I owned a Grumman!

    Mooney M20C Purchase Air Mods

    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!
