    Successful annual!!

    I do that and I wipe the inside of the wings down with a rag soaked in corrosion X and mineral spirits. You would be surprised the amount of gunk you get out of there even doing it almost every year.

    Successful annual!!

    Owner assisted annuals are the way to go if you have even the slightest bit of mechanical capability and an IA who will allow it and work with you. Don't forget to pay the IA well for his time too. Owner assisted annual with inspection only by the IA should fall in the $1000 to $1500 IMHO. My former mechanic would always ask at some point during the annual what she was there for. I would always tell her because you can sign the logbook. Yes annuals do take time. I generally take a day off on a weekend to open up the plane. I start cleaning and greasing, change the oil and filter and everything else that needs it. I will let the IA know the plane is ready. Once the inspection is complete we discuss what needs attention. Generally I already know that by the time I have finished cleaning and tell him what I'm going to be doing to get his buy in.

    SureFly Certified

    Yes from what I understand surefly and E-mag are both self contained and very simple to set the timing on each of them. E-mag has the added benefit of having its own generator built in so if you lose ship power you are not relying on the battery alone for your ignition. In my opinion for what its worth the E-mag is a safer more reliable alternative to our traditional mags or any other electronic ignition system.

    Registration extension

    Yes this will be good. I think the reason for going to 3 years has been achieved. I remember they wanted to get a number of old registrations of derelict aircraft off the registration rolls. Now that we have gone through few 3 year cycles we can extend the registration period to a more reasonable period. I would have used an even number like 6, 8 or 10 years. Registrations used to be good until canceled by the owner or the aircraft was sold.

    Hangar available Atlanta metro

    With that long of wait list they need to build more hangars. Looking at google maps there appears to be many T-hangars there already and there is plenty of room to add additional hangars. How many are on the wait list?

    SureFly Certified

    I understand the arduous path the FAA has put in place to prevent innovation in aircraft development but really If the electronic ignition will work on an engine what the hell difference does it make what aircraft it is on? by the way this is great. I just wish E-mag was as far along as surefly.

    Fuel efficiency in headwinds

    you started the conversation. I fly WOT unless landing or boring holes in the sky. When I have a head wind I want to get though it as fast as possible and yes I will try different altitudes to see if I get any better ground speed.

    WTB L.H. M20C/D/E Fuel Sender

    I'm not sure but the F uses 2 sensors, inboard and outboard, and the C uses one inboard sensor. There maybe a difference in the resistance each has. I would try them first. Remove the wire on the sensor and hook it to the new sensor ground the new sensor and move it make sure fuel gauge is moving correctly between E and F

    Australian Pilot visit

    Mike Sounds good. How many people are we talking about? Maybe when they show up we can coordinate flying them around. I would let them fly left seat if they are good experienced Mooney pilots which I'm sure they are. A little coordination and a couple of 3 to 4 hour flights and they can be almost anywhere in the USA flying themselves but with the owner in the right seat assisting.

    Avionics cover sealant

    I've used thin 1/16 thick, closed cell foam about 1" wide, with adhesive on wine side and trim as necessary. Works well and easy to remove and put the cover back in place.

    Rosen Sunvisor Replacement

    yes but in my opinion you need to trim them down they are too big initially.

    Low voltage

    Verify the field wire and the ground wire to the alternator are in good condition and the connections are tight.
