  1. My vacuum pump failed on my 77 M20J. My plan was to change over to an electric back up when this happened. The obvious choice would have been to replace with the new Garmin G5. My avionics shop has informed me that for Certified aircraft the G5 is only approved as a primary instrument and cannot be used as a backup. Just wondering if anyone in this group has gone all electric and what did you do once the vaccum pump failed. I do have a G500 now, see picture below. Any help and advice is appreciated. Eldon
  2. Having flown in your airplane I can agree with you. The attachment that you get from purchasing the add ons such as the GTN750 and making this your personal airplane are hard to overcome. I do have a wing from a 78 J and if you want pictures I can provide for you. I have full US logs and Canadian logs. Eldon

  9. Give these folks a chance. With the strong US dollar you might have an advantage money wise. Probably worth a phone call. I know they have a lot of US customers.

  10. The Mooney instructor I hired for my insurance check ride says he always locks the baggage door before flight. This is part of my pre flight and prior to boarding I habitually lock the baggage door.
  11. I am going to install a Garmin 330 mode S TX, and hoping that traffic will show up on either my GTN 750 MFD or my G500 MFD. I am not really clear in my mind what will happen. I will need another ADSN-In device to have weather for sure. The radio guy gave me a real good price for trade in on my 327 transponder and that is why i made the change. Here in Canada we are not mandated the 2020 date however I do fly a lot in the US and would like to have what I need to keep the controllers happy. Any advice and help is appreciated.
  12. Kind of curious what rates are? I get mine from JL Davidson and Assoc in Ajax ON. I have a J with 210,000 coverage. Paying 1.1 % full coverage
