    First Year Cost of Ownership

    I hope the previous owner is on MooneySpace
  4. Our last event had a light turnout, in the rain, with 2 Mooneys bringing 3 people to lunch at Lake Wales. The food was GREAT! Ruth and I were up North in the seaplane, so don’t know much about it, but I did hear that the airport did a good job of transporting the three to lunch. Our next event will be this Saturday, September 8, at Winter Haven (GIF). The restaurant on the airport is still closed for remodeling so the airport manager has rented a van to take us to Floridino’s Italian Kitchen. All events start at 11:30. Please check your e-mail before attending as sometimes I make last minute changes for various reasons. Future Schedule September 8, Winter Haven (GIF) October 13, Flagler (FIN) November 10, Vero Beach (VRB) December 8, Punta Gorda (PGD) I really appreciate it if you can e-mail me (daveanruth@aol.com) by Thursday night of the week of the event and let me know if you are going to try to make it, so I can call the restaurant on Friday with a head count. No one is obligated to come if they told me they are coming and can’t make it for mechanical, weather, health, or any other reason. Hope to see you soon, Dave and Ruth
  5. Mike Elliott is your man, if he's available. N9427v@gmail.com or mike@aviating.com Don't tell him I said so, but you won't find better.

    Mooney down at KHEG (north FL)

    That's the way to do it, John. Anyone want to venture a guess on who was doing the repairs and maintenance on "salvage" N201RD? What a shame.
  7. Nor are we! It won't be long, when people will wish they had DMax, at his worst, rather than the local shade tree guy. He spends so much time on the phone, helping guys without charging them, that his time supervising is impacted. He has IA help for that....and we all know how easy it is to find and hold onto good help. The King, and a treasure...for sure!

    Meet Our New Bravo (almost)!

    Best of luck with that beautiful, fast and comfortable Mooney!
  9. We had a nice lunch last month with 4 Mooneys, 1 Lake, and 1 Mercedes bringing 11 people together at Williston. Our next event will be this Saturday, August 11, at Lake Wales (X07). There is no restaurant on the field, but the airport manager, Jared DeLong is arranging to have a city van drive us to an nearby place. So fly in, park on the ramp by the self service fuel, and a van will take you to the terminal building and then to the restaurant. This has worked well in the past. Ruth and David are up in Michigan via his seaplane, so he would appreciate it if you thank the van driver, and if someone sends him an e-mail afterwards telling him how it went and who was there. All events start at 11:30. Future Schedule: August 11, Lake Wales (X07) September 8, Winter Haven (GIF) October 13, Flagler (FIN) November 10, Vero Beach (VRB) Try to e-mail David (daveanruth@aol.com) by Thursday to let him know if you are going to attend. He then lets the restaurant know the approximate head count. Of course no one is obligated to come if something better comes up. Do some flying, meet people with the same interests, and have some fun!

    Pilot training

    The "best" schools are free! USAF, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard....like that. If he can't handle the military, transfer to Embry Riddle University.

    Best paint shop in the South?

    Excellent decision
  12. I have one or two of those memory boxes from a KLN90 somewhere, if that's what you need.

    N943RW at Hawk Aircraft Paint

    Great looking paint job....Hawk has done it again, Bob! Hope the FAA likes the N# size. I sure do. Nice that the paint didn't wash off, flying through the rain. Enjoy showing her off!
