    Mooney Bravo Valuation

    On any old vehicle you're buying the previous owners as much as the vehicle. The current bunch doesn't come across as diligent IMO from the info provided. Shock disks especially...that is a very minor expense relative to other Bravo items, yet hasn't ever been done? Wow. How are the fuel tanks? Listen to Lance. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    WTB Spare Data Card for Garmin 430 WAAS

    I have silver sticker WAAS cards in my units, which were converted in 2007 under the $1500 promotion. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Pagosa Springs CFI

    Look up the Colorado Pilot's Association. They put on weekend clinics and should have a CFI roster. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    You don't need an STC or 337. These are TSO lights that can be installed as a minor mod with a logbook entry. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    KX 165 is failing

    Bevan-Rabell in Wichita does bench repairs on these radios. Worth a phone call to see if they can scope the problem from your symptoms before sending it in our replacing it. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    WTB - Left aileron for 252

    That's great! Can't believe there is a good one on a shelf. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    WTB - Left aileron for 252

    Well, that slightly complicates things! I suspect the price of a new one will warrant an insurance claim...or he can sit AOG for a long time looking for a used one at a cheaper but still expensive cost. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    WTB - Left aileron for 252

    Finding good used ailerons is nearly impossible. If he's flying that much he should just get a new one from the factory and ring up the offender's insurance agent. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    To buy or not to buy? Rocket 305 TSI-520-NB

    I concur that a Rocket is very likely too big of a jump right now... If you truly have a year off, I'd look for a nice J and fly it as much as you can, get the instrument rating, and take your bride on some fun trips after you get a bit more experience. You might find a J fits your needs just fine, or you could move up from there. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Help finding the right 201

    Some metal is always present in oil...is your criteria for no metal at all, or above a certain threshold or relative to fleet averages? Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    TSO implies you don't need an STC/AML doesn't it? STC is needed if the hardware doesn't meet TSO or other existing standards if my memory is correct. All those vintage TSO radios never needed an STC for installation as an example. Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk

    Why can't you replace one TSO part with another? Sent from my LG-US996 using Tapatalk
