  1. I wouldn't count on it, at least for the long bodies, in fact I'm expecting the 600 to be required for our fiki airplanes.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nice! We were on the ground in SC, but Mooney got us there Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Well, not good reading.

    Totally agree don't like the handling characteristics at all. Doesn't trim well either. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Well, not good reading.

    Mooneys biggest competition is just as capable used Mooney airframes in the 10-20 year old range. That said the same is true of Cirrus - maybe they don't age as well? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Stratux vs stratus vs SiriusXM

    I only offered it to make a point, but at $250 I'd make as many as anyone wanted. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Nope, swap em out for Garmin Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Ah yes literacy challenges here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. You didn't read what I wrote. Yes you can cruise any light single at 90kts comfortably, so? That's one of many factors......... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah it's hard to have such a fast airplane! lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. That's not true. They have different stall speeds. Glide ratios. Weights. You point the nose down in an Archer, no problem. Do the same in a modern Mooney for instance, whoa, redline! More HP is more to handle on the runway, we don't take off partial power. Some planes are inherently easier and more forgiving. And of course multi (asymmetric thrust) is a whole other level of difficulty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. You move up incrementally and gain experience. Yeah you can get in over your head by jumping to far ahead. It's not just stick and rudder can you handle take offs and landing, it's do you have the judgement to fly across four different weather systems that are in range of your plane now, or can you keep ahead of the plane mentally when it's going 180kts instead of 120? Re Mooney, which Mooney? Yeah a Bravo or Acclaim or even an Ovation is a lot of airplane. An M20C on the other hand is only 180hp, big difference. My path was 172s and warriors and archers. Then Arrows, and then got my instrument rating before moving to a high performance Mooney. Then commercial single and multi. And so on. Basically you get to very capable airplanes by flying increasingly complex and higher performance ones, and by getting very good transition training... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
