  1. I understand that, but I'm not paying 8 to 10k to insure that risk. I'll absolutely take those odds and keep the money if they want to be that unreasonable. I would pay for good liability insurance though, but apparently all you can get is 100k per passenger, and that barely covers a broken toenail.
  2. Thanks. Sure hate I’ll have to miss the class this time then. Maybe next year I’ll get a reasonable insurance rate.
  3. Except I don’t have insurance and it’s not worth paying 8 to 10k dollars to get it so I can go to the class unfortunately
  4. Do you have to have insurance to do this? Seems like I read that somewhere. I don't currently have it as it was just too ridiculous of a rate. Maybe when I finish with instrument rating it'll be better. Sure would love to do this training in Tupelo.
  5. Where is everyone getting email addresses for them from? I'll ask next time on the phone with them of course, but they've never volunteered that as a contact method.
  6. Yep. Sure seems that way. I did ask for a new mixture cable to be installed, but I called about that before I ever arrived, and they say that already arrived.
  7. Agree completely. I did just call them and got an update this time that there are some parts they are waiting on (what, I am not sure), and they expect them to arrive this week and hopefully complete the annual this week. But yes, I guess I expected an occasional call or update without me having to track it down. Presumably there are no surprises since no one has called, but since I haven't heard anything, anything unusual will certainly be a surprise.
  8. Thanks. Yeah, I scheduled it a few months ago, so I have been surprised by the length of this.
  9. How long should a typical annual take on a J-model, particularly at Don Maxwell's place? My plane is having it's first annual there, and it's now been there over a month with no updates. How often would you call? I did call a little over a week ago now and was told they had been behind but were working on it, then tried again yesterday, but the receptionist seemed like they were too busy to check for an update with Monday being a hectic day. I believe one of the mechanics had a health issue. I don't want to wear out my welcome with people who have such a great reputation, but I am also frustrated. Is this at all typical on a yearly basis?
  10. The stall warning horn on my M20J is broken. Something in the actuator broke. Is that required equipment for flight? I looked a the TCDS but I'm not sure I'm understanding it correctly. If it is required equipment, then instead of spending a lot fixing it, can someone get an AOA indicator as a substitute?
  11. I guess it depends on what price knocks most sim enthusiasts out, but I would be interested
  12. Well, thing is, I already have whelen led lights. I bought the plane two months ago though so maybe this problem was there even before the avionics shop put the led lights in
  13. Where might I find a generic circuit breaker switch? I've been searching around for a couple hours but must not have found the correct one. Does it use some other part number? Air Power has some new at 318
  14. I'll check that out, but the switch itself doesn't really click into place well when it's switched on either. it'll some times flop back in the middle between off and on
  15. My landing light switch seems to be broken. It will turn on momentarily then turn off (and sometimes flash like a strobe). I believe I must have bad switch. I THINK the switch I need is on Lasar's site at the link below as part 930023-235A, but it's sold out (and has an enormous price even if it were available). What's everyone doing when this happens? It doesn't look like they have any in stock that are the same even if it were a beacon switch instead of a landing light switch. https://lasar.com/switches/rocker-switch-landing-light-circuit-breaker-930023-235a
  16. It appears to us that a piece of metal on the latch actually broke apart
  17. From what my A&P and I can tell, different enough that the holes don’t line up and will require some drilling it appears and possibly a field check (or Lasar said field check for the KM610-51 if they had it anyway). Might be my only option though
  18. The latch on my 1979 M20J SN 24-0806 oil access door broke today. KM680 is the part I need from Camloc Alcoa, but they are no longer made and appear out of stock. Lasar mentions using KM610-51 and drilling some new holes to make it work, but they are out of those too (I might can find one though). does anyone have any better solutions that might have broken theirs also? Those latches are a pain anyway. I wonder if the newer style latches on later models could be used
  19. My internet experience? I was there for the prebuy, bought the plane, and it flies great. Greg went above and beyond including letting us borrow their car instead of taking expensive Lyft/Ubers too. He's also been willing to answer questions after it was all said and done days later. Nobody likes a smarta**, dude
  20. I called on a Monday I think it was, and we did the prebuy with Greg on Friday. Edit: and yeah, multiple Mooneys were in the shop
  21. Multiple people on here recommend him, plus I disagree completely, but whatever man. I guess he can wait 6-8 weeks on Arapaho air while the plane he likes is sold out from under him.
  22. Greg at KBJC Mountain Air just did one for me last weekend. He was great!
