  1. I will have to do that! If you ever end up in central Virginia before I'm that way let me know as well.
  2. I appreciate your advice! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. It’s been really tough working the market lately. It’s either lower price with a big potential mechanic bill or in in good shape and well equipped with really high acquisition cost. It worked out though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The guy that owned it really put a lot into it (time and money). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. After several months and a few mistakes along the way I can finally call N7816V my own. After some training I flew I home today from KOPN to KLYH. I knew that I’d love flying a mooney but this one really impressed me with its efficiency and easy handling characteristics (as long as you keep your speeds right). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Awesome, I’ll give them a call to see what we can figure out. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Good evening! I have finally found a Mooney I want to purchase and have a purchase agreement. Does anyone know of a good Mooney mechanic to complete a pre-buy inspection near Fort Valley, Georgia?
  8. That definitely makes sense to me. It would only be an accessory to a plane that otherwise looks close to what I am looking for. Being on the East Coast and my typical long flight not really needing to go as high as that would allow, I may leave it to someone else.
  9. https://www.barnstormers.com/ad_detail.php?id=1489646&catid=20590 I’ve noticed this C on the market for a while now and even spoke with one of the owners. The only thing I’m apprehensive about is it being turbo normalized (Rayjay). My biggest question is about adding another system and potentially another maintenance cost that could be expensive and not worth it for my typical mission. Is this a legitimate concern? If the rayjay failed could you simply just remove it? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I wouldn't say I'm dead set on a C, just most of what I've been looking at the C fits my budget better. Do you know any details on it such as model year, TSMOH, avionics, tank sealing timeframe, etc? Thanks
  11. The best advice! I’ve been sitting on the cash for this purchase just waiting. It seemed when I didn’t have the cash there were several at a good price and matching my desires. Now, not so much luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I don’t disagree with you, we lucked out on a home purchase last year and got a really good deal. This year a similar home is going for $50k more than we paid (I’m in southern VA where home prices are reasonable). I have found that the aircraft which aren’t top of the market are still bringing a reasonable price (higher than 3 years ago still) and that’s where I’m likely heading for a purchase. The top 25% of the quality seems to be making up 75% of the price increases. I know the mindset is to buy the best examples of the aircraft you want, but I cannot see paying the prices or anywhere near what some people are asking. It does appear though that the airplanes on the market that are asking the really high prices are sitting for quite a while. I’ve noticed a few that have been on the market for over a month or more and are steadily having to drop their asking price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. What in specific would you say are the biggest differences on 65 and newer (outside of the windows)? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I saw that one too and am working on getting more information. It seems like a good price. Apparently the logs prior to 1985 are missing which is somewhat concerning though the seller was straight forward about it. I think the way the lower cowl is attached is different. Screws vs quicker fasteners I think though I could be completely wrong. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
