  1. I discussed with my agent at Falcon. I've been with Global for some time. She stated she’s never had Global drop anyone due to age, and I should be good to go for a number of years yet. Can’t wait to see what it will cost as I get older.
  2. A bit late to the party. I’ve taken aerobatic lessons in a Zlin 242, T-6, and Extra 300. Flown simple aerobatics in a Cub, Taylorcraft, Citabria, and Lancair. Did my spin training in a C-150. I limit my Mooney maneuvers to commercial maneuvers. It does fantastic lazy 8’s.
  3. The best fried chicken I ever had was my mother’s, when I was a kid on the farm. It was our Sunday meal every week after church. Chicken was as fresh as it could be. I won’t bore you with the details but i remember it like it was yesterday, even though it was 60 years ago.
  4. My prop OH used that grease. Tiffin Aire sent a tube of the grease with the prop. I keep it in the fridge in my hanger so it won’t go bad when it gets hot in the summer.
  5. Any chance of getting a link to the movie you referenced in Hammdo’s cool Mooney adds post.  I’m still learning how to use MS so let me know is this is not the way to request.

  6. When we replaced our interior we purchased bulk material from Airtex and had our local auto seat cover shop do the work. Worked out fine and I still have material for the future. At the time we discussed why I supplied material specific to the burn test. The auto interior guy said the only difference between Airtex and his material was the fact that the Airtex material had been tested. They both are manufactured to the same standard.
  7. In industry, calibration should be traceable back to the national bureau of standards. Not sure how this would apply to a torque wrench but force and length or distance certainly have a US basis for those values there. Probably a bit of overkill here, but....
  8. Note: this photo was taken before engine overhaul when new controls were installed.
  9. I covered mine with vinyl wrap from a website called vivid vinyl. Used white on clear tape for labeling. Not fancy but functional. May need @carusoamto fix the gravity issue on the photo.
  10. I have a set of digital torque indicators I use to check my torque wrenches regularly. I know they will need calibrated at some time as well. They are still fairly new and came with calibration papers. Don’t use them for wrenching. Not an AP/IA so only using them for “owner approved stuff”. I stay heavily involved any time a mechanic touches my airplane. It’s my butt in the left seat, not his.
  11. There are numerous shops in Ohio. Dial Eastern in Cadiz, Air Mod at Clermont Co (home of Sporty’s), AV8 at Marion, also a shop in Benton Harbor, Mi. - Flying Colors.
  12. I emailed my rep last night right after this post. Once I hear from her, I will contact Parker to discuss. thank you
  13. All this age related insurance stuff is making me nervous. I’ve been with Falcon for almost as long as I’ve had my Mooney (30 years). I’m reach 69 this year. Looks like I need to have a good discussion with Falcon to determine what my future with them will be. Do I need to look for another insurer?
  14. So what are you guys using for an AOA monitor?
