  1. I am intrigued by this. I would love to hear how your process goes and if successful would certainly be interested in doing this for my own. Once question though, @Flybeech21 I saw earlier in the thread you mentioned doing this in part to access different avionics. I have a feeling that I'm just failing at reading comprehension, but I don't understand how swapping over to the primary category special airworthiness cert from the standard makes this easier. Is it that the primary category certificate does not require to keep to the aircraft to the original type design? --Edit-- Reread the thread and saw you're planning on adding it to the STC. Now I am doubly curious about your process and what you end up doing. Good luck!
  2. Hey all, I'm new here! I'm part-way down the rabbit hole of purchasing a vintage M20 (no deposits yet just virtually tire kicking). One item I still need to address are my insurance requirements. The prospective quotes I've received so far want between 5 and 10 hours of dual instruction (Falcon on the low end and Avemco on the high end). My problem is that while googling around has turned up lists of CFIs in lots of places there don't appear to be any near me (KSLC). So my questions are: Does the collective here know of anyone near Salt Lake City that has M20C/E experience and can instruct? If not, what have other people done in this situation? Call around to find a CFI that's willing to travel? The aircraft that I'm looking at are in either Texas or California. Another option is taking some additional vacation when I go to finalize the purchase and do the training at the location I pick up the aircraft. Anyway just looking from some opinions on how others got their initial training done when they first bought a Mooney. Thanks!
