  2. Yeah, I think I'll be looking for an M20E since 90+% of the time it's going to just be two of us and occasionally a couple small dogs. That model seems to be the sweet spot for our mission.

So, are there any Mooney C/E owners in the Nashville, TN area (or thereabouts) willing to let me sit in their plane and make airplane noises while seeing how it fits? At 5' 9" I’m sure I’ll fit fine. I just want to make sure the wife and I will both be happy sitting in it on longer flights. (Both our families live a 2-3 hour plane ride away.) I'd als
