  1. Is it FIKI or just TKS? And wet head? Getting into a FIKI, zero time Bravo for 175 AMU would be sweet. My 2 cents- you'll need to be at 90/95 to make that happen. Possibly a bit more because of the 750.
  2. If the need comes back- I used Hans Molbak to bring my O from London. He grew up in Greenland and flies Phenoms for Netjets in Europe. PM me if you need his contact.
  3. Very sad that this is happening now. But not surprising. I have a sound system rental business in NYC - we've had 4 jobs since March. On one of those jobs in Connecticut, on October 3rd, something happened that has never happened in 35 years of doing this kind of work. I had a truck broken into, they got away with 40K worth of audio gear. My crew were complacent, broke company rules and parked where they should not have. Be diligent, people are desperate and I'm afraid it won't get better any time soon.
  4. Seems like this would have to be somewhat inefficient, no?
  5. Hi Jonny! Thank you for finding the time to connect. My hope is that the silver lining of this nasty Covid cloud is a Mooney factory that is able to use this time (when it's difficult for anyone to compete) to quietly rewrite the Mooney image to align with the facts. It's 2020, be relentless and brutal to the competition. They have been to us. So- website, yes, please! Jim
  6. How do you deal with the run-off? 2 gallon Mooney shaped puddle on the hangar floor??? I'm assuming it's it an ecological faux pas to let 24 gallons of ethylene glycol soak into the grass every year.
  7. You'll need to vet the engine on the TAP Missile. It hasn't flown enough since the conversion. And look extra close at tube corrosion because of the age. Otherwise that could be a viable plan for your budget/needs. Did you know that Jimmy lists his inventory here before it goes on the market? https://mooneyspace.com/topic/35783-new-unadvertised-inventory/
  8. I thought it may be a good idea to reach out and try to start a direct discussion between Jonny Pollack (left seat at the Mooney factory) and MS'ers. I would like to first express, and I think I am speaking for everyone here, my gratitude for your efforts in breathing new life into our beloved Mooney. You are not alone. It may be that owners of legacy aircraft will never generate the revenue needed to sustain Mooney but we may be able to help get the company over the first hill. I think that we all share in the hope that Mooney goes on to take it's rightful place as a premium aircraft ma
  9. Yeah- sorry, doesn't seem to want to respond to the normal rotation commands. One of those birds is about as rare as they come, maybe not quite as rare as the twin Mustang...
  10. Sorry to hijack- had to share this Mustang & friends... IMG_6299.m4v
  11. There's a lot here on Missiles- maybe Seth will chime in or PM him. To make a very long story short, before Mooney stretched the J/K's into Ovations and Bravos, (Porsche Mooneys were in there too but...) Rocket Engineering converted J's and K's into Missiles (non-turbo) and Rockets (turbo). The Missile has the same io550 Continental engine that Mooney later put into the Ovation. The Missile is actually faster and has better UL than the Ovation because it doesn't have the stretched fuselage weight penalty. As far as TBO, through the years the TBO on Ovations was increased to 2000hrs (the new o
  12. Just took a quick look at what's out there in your price range and here's my vote: https://www.controller.com/listing/for-sale/196449671/1985-mooney-m20j-201-missile-piston-single-aircraft
  13. Seth is just the nicest guy in the world to think of offering- iI have room in mine too for a bird or 2 - KPSF in the Berkshires.
  14. Welcome to MS Matt & thank you for your service- 1. The AOPA purchase agreement is good, it pretty much spells out everything and it worked for me when push came to shove. 2. These folks are great for the escrow: Insured Aircraft Title Service, LLC 21 E. Main St., Suite 100 Oklahoma City, OK 73104 Phone: 405-681-6663 U.S.: 800-654-4882 Fax: 405-684-5036 3.
