    AOPA FLY-IN KJKA Gulf Shores

    Kortopates, sorry I missed you tonight. I looked for you at the Barnstormers Party. On Saturday, I’ll be at the Mooney Acclaim and Tecnam display, so please stop by. If I’m not there, stop by later. Thx!

    AOPA FLY-IN KJKA Gulf Shores

    Kortopates, I’ll look for you Friday night! I’ll have a Mooney polo shirt on & will wear shorts. Some inbound planes to Santa Fe diverted because of strong crosswinds after I landed. It was bumpy at 12:15pm today and it was very gusty. It wasn’t my best landing, that’s for sure. I don’t have my October schedule yet, so I don’t know if I’ll attend the Gulf Shores event.

    AOPA FLY-IN KJKA Gulf Shores

    I'll be attending the Santa Fe AOPA Fly-in. Arriving on Thursday at 12pm. I attended the last one in Missoula, and that was lots of fun, until a deer ran out in front of the truck and ruined the front end. I've never seen so many deer in my life up in Montana. Beautiful country though and the Smoke Jumpers tour was amazing back at the airport.

    Oshkosh 2018 - Who's going?

    I'll be flying in from Las Vegas in the Mooney. Staying in Green Bay for less than $100/night at a Marriott property. Drive down to OSH.

    New Service Instruction for Rudder Slippage

    I'm getting this issue addressed within the next two weeks at DLK Aviation in Atlanta. Mooney has the parts in stock. I'm always using almost full right rudder trim in the climb and during high-speed descents, I'm at full left rudder trim. It will be covered under warranty, which helps. I never operate the rudder trim unless the aircraft is in motion on the ground as per my excellent Acclaim Instructor Mr. Mike Elliott.

    Stopped by the Mooney factory today.

    Yes sir Mike! The plane is awesome, perfect for mountain flying out west. It will be returning back to Georgia in March for a month or so. Thanks again for the M20TN checkout! It was great flying with you.

    Sun n Fun 2018

    I'll be at Sun 'n Fun early in the week. There's an aviation Maintenance/Repair/Overhaul convention (MRO Americas) in Orlando that week, so it'll be a busy week! I'll look for ya in Lakeland.

    Movie: American Made

    Marauder, You're a good detective to find these articles! That's the guy that checked me out in N721GA. He was a nice guy, very patient, and a good flight instructor. Sorry for straying a bit off topic.

    Haha, aviation movies always get first priority! Good hearing from you Mike, and I hope you and your wife are well in the New Year.

    Movie: American Made

    I remember Donegal Springs. One of their chain-smoking pilots checked me out in a Grumman GA-7 Cougar. I forgot his name, (Jay maybe?) but I'm told he went to jail for smuggling drugs? I flew the rental Cougar over to Aerodynamics at KRDG, the mechanics came out to look at the plane and noted about a dozen things wrong with it just by a quick walk-around. On the flight back, I lost a generator on one of the engines.

    Movie: American Made

    From what Dorn Claire tells me from Henry Weber Aircraft (MSC) in Lancaster, PA, the Aerostar is fast as HELL!

    Movie: American Made

    Watched the movie on Delta Tuesday on the flight from LAS-ATL. Very entertaining with lots & lots of GA aircraft! I generally don't care for Tom Cruise, but he was good in the movie. No Mooneys in the movie though.

    Young Eagles

    I started flying the Young Eagles October & December of 2017 out of KLZU - Gwinnett County, GA. It was very well coordinated, the pilots were well briefed, and faster planes flew at higher altitudes to separate them from the slower Cessna aircraft. I thought it was very rewarding and I was glad I didn't have to pull out the vomit bags. All the kids I flew were repeat flyers from earlier in the year. We started at 0830, done by 12pm. The kids got a logbook and completion certificate, both signed by the pilot.

    Upgrade path from g1000 to NXI

    I use to have a G600, GTN750 and GTN650 in a beautiful 1998 J model Mooney. With the new aircraft purchase, I feel like I've gone back in time using the G1000. The GTN's are a superior product in a lot of ways. I really miss the GTN's. I'd certainly consider the NXi upgrade if it becomes available at some point in the future. At least it would be a step in the right direction, even if it's not touchscreen, which I wish it was.
