  1. Instituted some new security procedures in the hangar:
  2. Don't forget international marketing. Many examples of companies back in the day, before they got savvy, who came up with terms for their products that turned out to be offensive in foreign locales. Years ago, COMSOL Multiphysics, a Swedish finite element analysis program, was called "FEMLAB". I had an early copy of it and wrote to the company that 'FEMLAB' might not be the best choice of name in the male-dominated US engineering milieu. I don't know if that email did anything, but they did change the name. There was another instance over the years where a new research group's acrony
  3. @Ricky_231 I checked, they are not here. It is a long shot, but you could call the FBO at KBPT (409-719-4950) and ask them if they could take a look in hangar 31 (public T-hangars). The county folks are just good Tejas people and most likely would take a look for you. I know I didn't toss them and by now you are probably aware that they are made from unobtanium.
  4. I think I left them in my hangar at KBPT when I moved to 03NC. I'll look around and see if they are here.
  5. I am kicking that around. Some of the other hangars on the field are not hangars at all, but what I call aircraft showrooms. They are completely drywalled, polished, epoxied floor, HVAC, Big Ass Fan, bathrooms, bar, etc. Frankly, I sort of like the industrial look to mine and I just want the six months of high heat and bitter cold to be mitigated somewhat. I don't want to dump a huge amount of money in, just have more time to play with my toys year-round. Because of the mild NC seasonal cycles, the heat/cold cycling is actually advantageous. If I go to the hangar in the morning during the
  6. On St. Pats day we'll have been here in coastal NC for exactly one year. I wanted to experience the weather over the four seasons before deciding on how to control the weather inside my 2000 sf hangar. As spring approaches, just opening the doors on each side makes a wonderful environment and this works great in the fall as well. Then there's Elsa to deal with starting mid-November and then Lucifer shows up in June. What I really want to do is take the chill off during the cold months and moderate the heat in the summer. The whole building is uninsulated, just wooden framing with a pitche
  7. The level of boredom of Mooney owners unable to fly is staggering
  8. Just going to throw this out and keep in mind I'm an EE who is thermodynamically challenged, but has anyone thought of running a hose from their car exhaust up into the engine compartment of their Mooney? Of course, we are talking outside of the hangar or with the door open. Sit in your car and stay toasty while it warms up the engine.
  9. I suggest caution, a Heat Gun is not a hairdryer. The concentration of heat put out by a gun is phenomenal and could ignite the engine. A small, high quality ceramic space heater would serve you better, you want gentle, controlled heat.
  10. I wondered this myself, you know the old saying "It isn't a question of whether, but of when."
  11. Most likely Garmin thought of that and then their attorneys put the kibosh on it
  12. I looked at the manual and didn't see anything about alarms on the SpO2 and as others have pointed out, continuous tracking is only during 'sleep monitoring'. It would not take much (s/w mod) to add a mode where it would sample your SpO2 every minute AND sound an alarm below a present limit--exactly what a pilot needs! Amazing that Garmin has missed this. At $129, which is the price point for some high-end SpO2 monitors, you could wear this on your opposite wrist during flight, no need for any of the other functions. I didn't look to see if it had a tactile alert--that would be anot
  13. A really great talent finds its happiness in execution--Goethe
  14. Very, very lucky...you probably used what was left in the bucket. That door could have taken a piece of the empennage off, but you know that.
  15. Absolutely, but the laundry-list aspect of it should make potential buyers beware. It is not rocket science, or voodoo magic, to doing a pre-buy on a Mooney in spite of the mystique that seems to surround it. What you have is people that are essentially clueless about Mooneys other than knowing them as fast and having a cult following. They are wanting to buy into it on the cheap, without doing their homework. What they also don't know is that every vintage Mooney is pretty much a project. Where a buyer comes into that project is essentially the purpose of the prebuy.
