  1. @Matt M our family is in a similar situation. Up until recently, I always had them both in their lightweight, airplane designated car seats but have more recently began putting both my 5yo and 3yo both boosters with the shoulder harness WHEN my wife is flying with us. If it is just me, my 3yo stays in a carseat and my 5yo in a booster to give me one less distraction/concern in case my 3yo tried to get out. Also, consider this, In an emergency and/or off field landing, would you rather have them in the carseat or booster? The carseat will probably provide superior protection on impact but be mo

  3. Attached you’ll find the housing for my 1987 J. It’s labeled TP20 instead of TP39 like one of yours. Hope this helps. I believe some others have made the Aerolite A508 LED work with this housing so for $56 bucks might be worth the try..
  4. I’d be looking at a similar upgrade path, as I’m flying behind the KAP 150 now.
  5. I do have the EA 100 for the Aspen to drive the AP. Here’s two pics that will give a better idea of my current setup. I would like to remove the vacuum system when I do the panel upgrades.
  6. @1964-M20EI agree. The integration of the Avidyne 540 and KAP 150 A/P was my consideration for the AeroVue.
  7. Thanks @carusoam. I wouldn't want my plane to be the test-subject for the AeroVue due to the unknowns. Sounds like no Mooney owners have taken this route with their upgrades - and probably for good reason. My initial plan was to upgrade the the Aspen 1000 PFD to the Aspen 2000/2500 Max System, which provides complete redundancy to the PFD in the event of failure, and even further possibly add a Garmin G5 for another back-up to the PFD and MFD. I've read about the numerous problems that others have had with their Aspens but after 1+ year and 150+ hours of flying behind mine I've had 0 prob
  8. Does Dynon have a certified autopilot to be used with their displays? I don’t believe the BK KAP 150 (my current AP) is compatible/STC’d.
  9. I don't believe the STC allows it to interface with the Avidyne 540 FMS/GPS/NAV/COM. If it does, I'm sure someone will chime in.
  10. Tried the search function and didn't find much luck with anyone installing the BendixKing AeroVue Touch PFD in their plane. Here's a link to the display: https://www.bendixking.com/en/products/ifd/integrated-flight-decks/aerovue-touch I'm currently flying behind an Avidyne 540 FMS/GPS, Avidyne MLB 100 for Traffic and Weather (ADSB-in), and an Aspen 1000 PFD linked to the original KAP 150 Autopilot.I love the Avidyne 540 and am committed to sticking with it. That said, it appears the Garmin Displays such as the G3X aren't a choice, and my best options would be an upgrade to the Aspen
  11. I leave mine folded since it aligns with the rest of the baggage area. Pic attached. Does yours not lay flat?
  12. I'm in if the date(s) align. Ideally on a Saturday since I'd plan to fly in from TX.
  13. Good advice. I'm in Texas so if I go the leather route, I'll make sure it's perforated.
  14. I've had my plane a year now and took it to Maxwell for it's first annual under my ownership. While there, they were able to take the 1987 original, cracked, and yellowed plastic side panels and wrap them in 3 different colors of ultra leather to match my 3 colors on the exterior. They also sent the glare shield and yokes off to Aerocomfort and had them wrapped as well. The carpets and seats were in good condition so I kept the originals. However, I'm considering getting the seats done in a chocolate brown colored leather in a diamond stitched pattern. Anyone go from cloth to leather seats and
  15. I'll keep an eye out for details. Looking forward to it!
