  1. Looks like it's gonna be made in China now. GA is gonna take off in Asia with more and more countries approving airspace for GA crafts. And they don't care about the having to sell with back to Americans yet because of the trade war with Trump. I heard that Mooney's past failures are due to bad marketing and I totally agree. You can have one of the best product out there but if it's not marketed properly you'll lose market share.... I still think mooney should have signed a deal with RR for their engines.
  2. putting in an offer for plane with 1975smoh and having heard about discussion regarding pilot might experience an engine out at one time in their lifetime...if the io390 will reduce this risk then it might be in a consideration to just get a new one from Lycoming.. what would a 390 reduced the risk of an engine out considering all is treated equal ?
  3. Just wondering if anyone has done this upgrade on in their 20F or J. Putting an io390 which is STC by lycoming I believe. If so, would love to hear about the comparison in climb cruise...
  4. I'll google them up and give them a call tomorrow. Thx
  5. Yes, I meant PPI, kept on thinking about Pre Delivery Inspection..
  6. Can someine recommend a PPI in Forth Worth, TX? Thx
  7. I think it's best that you buy your own craft. Your partner mind as well hand over the 50% of the money to you. This deal sounds like it was written by Trump.

    Are there any different from a factory Mooney with TKS vs retro fitting TKS? Other then costs involved.
  9. Ohdub, that would be great. I've messaged you.
  10. MS, reason so keyed on TCI is that my sister just purchased land in middle Turks for me to GC to build her dream vacation home there. And it's probably where I plan to retired, I just hate taking commercial and going to big airports etc. I would gladly spend a little more time and money and perhaps find myself a good co and spend our leisure time in Mooney then taking commercial.
  11. Has anyone from NE flown to TCI before? Can a 20J do this trip comfortable with multiple stop overs. I am from Toronto and deciding between a 20J or 20K(252) I've given up on the F I was inquiring about. What would be a typical flyplan for you guys? From say CNC3 to MBPV. In J and also in K.
  12. Caru, this would be a forever plane.
  13. Thanks, I like taking weight of the plane. Maybe upgrading avionics and getting rid of the old wires at the same time might reduced a lot as well.
