  1. Alan - have any adsb transponders available?
  2. I know this is badly off topic but can we see some more pictures of your bird? That’s paint job looks sweet! Let’s see more of it! For what its worth, my gear doors on a 62 C appear to hang mostly straight down and leaning in toward each other a little bit.
  3. As a residential mortgage lender I do see your logic and like the idea. This.
  4. Thanks for the replies guys! I am into some real estate stuff on the side and like to have extra cash to play with for those projects. Don’t need to finance the plane but considering that option so that I have other opportunities with the funds. I will reach out to AOPA as well as the various institutions listed on your comments. Much appreciated! JA
  5. Hey gang! Still looking into buying the C from the Colonel. Because it’s a C, the price is very reasonable. I have planned to not finance the purchase but right now I am looking into financing a portion of the plane to hold onto some cash for the unknown items that will pop up. I am a finance guy so I do understand most of the pros and cons of getting a loan on the plane. My question is this - are there certain companies that will finance planes built in 1962? My initial search found large companies that won’t finance older than 1970. Also - I know it depends on a few factors, but what are going interest rates for aviation loans? As with most plane buyers I am sure, I am a strong buyer. But I wonder what rates and terms look like on these loans? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. If you have the name of a lender that will do 62 models I would love to hear them! -JA
  6. I am a local to SUZ and have a C there in a hanger. Mike Williamson at SUZ has some Mooney time and has helped ferry Mooney planes all over the country. He would be where I would start here locally. Mike helps run the club and is the lead instructor. He isn’t a Mooney expert per say but has a ton of experience and can at least help you get current and get the plane back home safely for additional training. Please feel free to contact me anytime as I live in bryant and would be happy to help anywhere I can. 501-326-2700 Jake
  7. Very cool planes guys! All of the birds look amazing in the air and I like all of the panel mods! Thanks for sharing! I feel that my wish list has grown since Saturday when I made this post! - JA
  8. That is interesting! The C that I have my hands on right now is a 62 as well. Thanks for sharing!
  9. Sounds very nice! I’m glad to hear she is still flying and well cared for!
  10. Hate to hear that she isn’t flying anymore! Thanks for sharing!
  11. Thanks for the reminder on that! I’ll fill that out more. GSXR - that is a cool looking bird! The dark paint behind the rear windows looks really good! I bet that adds a few knots! - sure looks like it. That’s the plane I’ve seen you talk about before, right? Do you ever wish you had her back?
  12. Thanks for your notes! Understand the economics involved with them, I was just looking to find some plane porn to look at while the weather is poor here. I have a plane in mind that could use an ADSB solution. It has a 430 non WAAS and an old transponder so I think it would be a good candidate for the new 375. Although I might wait a while and just do the wingtip option for now, until I get it through the next few annual inspections. Stec 30 AP with alt hold, IFR platform but I don’t have my IFR ticket yet. I’d like to be able to get the 375 but am wondering if I can hook up the stec 30 to the 375? And correct me if I’m wrong but the 375 would completely replace the existing transponder box, right? Also looking at updating the interior panels and carpet with some better seat covers. I’ve read about the airtex interiors and those seem possible to install with the help of a local A&P. But in general I am just looking to hear about examples of upgrades C’s. thanks guys!
  13. Hey guys! I’m curious to hear about and see some of your C models. I’d love to see some of the more modded out models and hear about their stories. I have one in mind and would like some ideas on panel upgrades, interior upgrades, common maintenance issues that you have fixed. Thanks for sharing! JA
  14. Alan, do you have any ADSB solutions? Looking for the Garmin solution.
