    Ownership costs

    Thank you everyone --all very helpful posts. Now all I have to do is convince the wife who has already been through the boat ownership thing with me!
  2. I am trying to decide whether to purchase a vintage Mooney, F,J or K probably, vs continuing to rent. The rental rates for a Cirrus, which is what I usually fly, are exorbitant. But ownership is expensive also with maintenance, insurance, tiedowns, engine reserves, etc. So, my question is what should I budget for reasonably (excluding gas of course) for annual operating costs, say for a $75k Mooney? Any ideas? Thanks,

    I spoke with Dynon Tuesday and was told they expect to have the STC for M20s by the end of the year.

    It is my understanding that Dynon's prices for certified aircraft are the same as they are for experimental aircraft. If that is the case, it looks like you could install a pretty nice panel for a lot less than $70-80k.

    Nice panel and great information. Thanks. I would hope that with Dynon Skyview components for certified aircraft a similar retrofit could be done less expensively today.

    I am new here and have flown most of my hours, including instrument training, in a Cirrus. But for cost reasons I am considering the purchase of an older Mooney E21, F or J instead of a Cirrus and then upgrading the panel. How much did it cost to do this panel upgrade, ballpark? Anyone know?
