  1. I wish I could do the same but we are happily expecting our first child and although financially everything says I could do it I rather wait and do my ppl and see what comes because life has a way changing your plans. Besides the baby I have yet to really defined my mission that’s why I came to this site to be more informed, but Kermit the frog (the first thing out the wifes mouth after she saw that m20F) would have being cheap enough to jump into and I do have my A/P so I could have done some of the routine maintenance on it until I learn more about the Mooney and it’s systems and quirks, do a few owner assisted annuals to really get in there and see.
  2. Hey if you do the research and that’s what you want, God bless and enjoy but do the research.
  3. Maybe a dumb question but I am new to Mooney’s but just wondering if this is very common on the 231? Or Mooney in general?
  4. Same boat, first baby on the way but I will try to finish it.
  5. I saw that plane and was wishing I had already finish my ppl, hope everything goes well and you get it. It looks good to me for the price Just safe to get a new paint job and interior
  6. This discussion reminded me of this video and I just had to post it, I am still learning but one thing I learn from this video is that giving wiggle room to the numbers might be a good idea.
  7. I need to write this one down, thanks for the great tip
  8. It sounds like this guys like living on the edge, hope his luck holds.
  9. Glad to hear you guys are ok, good call on going back and landing.
  10. I rather inspect and be sure or not purchase a suspect plane than end up on a NTSB report, those reports never end well.
  11. What do you mean by NDH? This is very interesting thread.
  12. Since they messed up once have them use torque seal. https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/cspages/crosschecktorqueseal.php Have them put it on any nut or fitting that is secured and it helps not only the mechanics working on the engine but you to spot any fittings or nuts that are loosening in the engine compartment now for what ever reason and get ahead of any issues in the future, hope they find the and fix the problem soon.
  13. Congrats, looking forward to joining the club myself someday.
