    Issue with ForeFlight 10.1

    I find ForeFlight support extremely responsive. Agree this would be a very bad bug.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Boston Airport

    Yes but would you choose it over Norwood in a Mooney? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Boston Airport

    I prefer BOS but I go in there a lot and I don’t have to pay the fees... I suspect that OWD is more “small” GA friendly than BED. The fees and fuel should be more reasonable. BED has become very expensive in recent years. Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bendix King Aerovue Touch

    Ha thought it was already shipping a while. Me I can’t wait to see progress with the Dynon skyview HDX. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bendix King Aerovue Touch

    I agree with all that has been said. Just pointing out that they’ve been shipping the Aeroview line for a couple years (eg king air retrofit) I believe, so maybe there is some slight hope that this evolution of a product is possible... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yet another iPad mount

    Love it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I love my Ovation but the cockpit doesn’t have any spare space. Never found an iPad mini mount I liked. Don’t like it where most mounts put it on the yoke. Then I discovered this! No mount needed, in cruise the mini fits snugly between the yoke horns and is propped up by the otherwise obsolete map light knob! Problem solved at least in cruise! Try that on a Cirrus!

    Anyone have a listing of useful loads

    Most range from 900 to about 1050. Don’t even look at a so called O conversion of a Porsche Mooney... TKS birds and AC birds will be on the worse side typically... When you see an ad you just have to ask. It’s annoying to me that it isn’t a required data field in the for sale sites... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Base a Mooney close to Manhattan

    HPN is insanely expensive. I’d say look at Danbury even though a bit of a drive. Nothing is easy from Manhattan. FRG is pretty good option but an hour on the LIRR. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    ovation propler upgrade question

    Has anyone ever done the prop (O1 here) before doing the engine stc? I may need to replace my prop but am waiting to overhaul / do the stc... will overhaul on condition. Are there any gotchas with this plan? Considering the new Acclaim prop...
  12. Honestly the control system on the Cirrus is a major flaw. It uses the springs rather than aerodynamic trim tabs which means the springs are always pulling this way and that and to deadens slow speed control feel. Some have hypothesized that this is a contributing factor to Cirrus pattern stalls spin accidents I suspect that’s what you were feeling controls. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    New England Mooney Pilots

    Yep! There is a new england safety pilot group on facebook you can request to join. I might be able to help depending on the date...

    Is it fiki by any chance? Empty fluid reservoir works in your favor too... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Overhaul on calendar time - io-550

    My M20R has 5 original cylinders at 2000 hours. So that’s not a foregone conclusion. You could also point out to the seller, that according to continental, at 12 years it’s due. If it’s 600 out of 2000, that’s a theoretical 70% remaining on what, a 50k overhaul, so yes you’re def asking for a lot to take 30k off. So let some other buyer buy it. Or split the difference if you really like the plane otherwise and cross your fingers. It’s at least a negotiation point and I sure wouldn’t pay as though it were a 5 year old engine with 600 on it. Finally I’d get a pretty thorough inspection, and of course a test flight, maybe oil analysis... Greg Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
