  1. Odd... Most instructors would recommend learning IR in the plane you are going to fly long term... Lots of technique to go with the training. You may ask again to clarify his answer... i trained for the IR just before getting the O in a C172... then trained again on the techniques of the IR that were O specific... It is financially less efficient to make it a two step process... Best regards, -a-
  2. Sounds like Zef got good quality advertising from their DMax / Mooney Max donation! Best regards, -a-
  3. Verify a few things are in the plane already... and a 95 Mooney came with some things... 1) POH that is S/N specific.... 2) handbooks for all the nav equipment... 3) tow bar 4) fuel cup 5) airframe, engine, and prop logs... 6) Having a cover is a great idea... now and while traveling... 7) Insurance... 8) Mooney specific Ownership Training... 9) Transition Training 10) IR Training... You didn’t mention your budget... ? is it tight like a CB, flexible as in you have done this before, or you have plenty to do things the right way... PP thoughts only, not a CFI or mechanic... Best regards, -a-
  4. Calling @flumag.... Invitation to join the cross-Atlantic discussion... Best regards, -a-
  5. Voice recognition must be deep in the core of one’s memory... you may not be able to see somebody... but, you will definitely recognize the voice of close family and friends... Best regards, -a-
  6. Oscar, great video as always! Using a Mooney to promote tourism, Fantasticó! I have used my Mooney for business... But, not quite as directly as this. Thanks for sharing. We’ll have to see if the surf boards are going to fit in side the Mooney... Traveling anywhere has some added risks... the more you travel, the better you get at it... Won’t make much of a difference inside or outside of the US... Best regards, -a-
  7. Find used TXPR at the reaper shop... see if that helps with the economics... Better to have everything hard wired together... than a second device paired independently... Even though I went with the independent paired.... Best regards, -a-
  8. That looks even better! And these do too... with the gravity switch... really looks like you can tell what mag is selected, just by looking! -a-
  9. Side track... https://airrace.org/news/stihl-national-championship-air-races-gold-results/ AirPirate, is this it? Congrats, on a job well done! Draco's demise is mentioned here... https://www.flyingmag.com/good-news-bad-news-reno-air-races-2019/ Best regards, -a-
  10. Alan, Do you know if these would work for both pilot or copilot sides? Somebody mentioned adding co-pilot brakes the other day... Best regards, -a-
  11. Welcome aboard, Nick! Tough thread to start with... The future will be brighter by far... Best regards, -a-
  12. That looks like a very expensive piece of cardboard! PJ, are you doing the work, or can you just look away... while it’s being completed? It is hard to look at a Mooney That has been so dis-assembled... Good luck for a quick completion. Best regards, -a-
  13. Great details Jay! Fabulous EI support, Oregon! Best regards, -a-
  14. +1 on Zef... My M20C got one to replace the sticks and stones and springs device that came originally with the plane... Easy install into the same space, same wires, same same.... completely improved performance... The original VR stuck on... boiled the battery, and melted the generator’s solder joints... Look up the options that you can install with that... remote status lights on the panel would be beneficial... Old PP memories of My M20C... I wasn’t so old back then... Best regards, -a-
