  1. Mooney has to sell to people who aren’t this group. Not only aren’t we the entire target market, we are hopefully only a small part... useful load plus chute plus maybe autoland and maybe a wider cabin can level the playing field. Chute is a must. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. People join mooneyspace after they choose to buy or have bought, we aren’t the target market so that’s a little misleading. And yeah I might be willing to fork over some real cash to Mooney for the max gross increase including new gear and cowl... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Extending the gear is trivial, the main issue has been weight. Not enough useful load to add a chute before this gross weight increase which is enabled by beefier gear... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. The word is they may be achieving a higher max gross on the long body with a retrofittable beefier landing gear kit. Here’s hoping for trailing link and no more doughnuts... Which is big, that’s been the limiting factor particularly on being able to offer a chute. Let’s face it, no chute can’t compete... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Jets have them in large part because of the undesirable characteristics of swept wings like Dutch roll... which doesn’t apply to a Mooney. That said it will be interesting to get a review... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Imho not worth it given the expense to not just do the GI275 now. When my KI256 has to be overhauled again it’s instant GI275 for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Here is all the info. I wouldn’t expect the border to be open for non essential travel however any time soon. https://www.aopa.org/travel/international-travel/canada Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Yes it’s with full fluid. And since you don’t have to carry full fluid it’s a net negative to the load. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Mini fly in lol... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Happy to... send me a pm with info. As near as I know Cape HQ was always Hyannis... but I believe EWB still has service... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. If you're looking to travel for work, I'd say FIKI is a good bet, but you can skip the AC. On a long trip its a rare day in the Northeast you can't climb out of the heat and you'll be going that high on cross countries. Mine is a 96, with 930 useful, which becomes more like 970 useful if I recall correctly when the TKS tank is low as its kept much of the year. Its all steam gauge with a KFC150, a nice electronic engine monitor and a L3 Lynx with active traffic, and a gns530w. I'm considering when either of the gyros start to go, or maybe sooner, swapping in a pair of the new Garmin GI-275s whi
  12. And just for contrast my Ovation, cruise from 5-10k typically, and plan roughly 11-13gph lop and 175tas, fiki airplane... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Not similar. The same. And generally newer. Ovations exist back to 94. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Yep, with a 20k service ceiling, simpler engine, you should be looking at Ovations too... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
