  1. Thanks a lot Byron. The carpets have been ordered and I found a local marine shop that has the snaps and tool. I ordered a dark carpet and now hesitate if I should keep the snaps as is with their metallic appearance or should I paint them with a matching color. Zinc plated snaps can be painted... stainless steel not so much I think. What color are yours? Yves

  3. Thanks folks for the advise. The aircraft is not sitting in hot temperature except july and august but I had issues like this with Velcro. If the snaps are risk free I will go with that. Is the floor thick enough so that metal screws can be installed without Tinnermans on the other side? Do we have to be careful not to drill into something we don't want underneath the floor? Thanks. Yves
  4. I am about to redo my carpet in my C. I have ordered from SCS. I am hesitating between Byron's snaps trick or Velcro. Any comments on what would work better? Questions: 1. For Snaps, how many do you put per large carpets sections? Is one per corner sufficient? 2. How do you secure the snaps on the floor and on the carpet? Any special tools needed? 3. Are the snaps (or hardware required to hold to carpet) visible? (after carpet installed of course) 4. For Velcro, is the glued type sticking sufficiently for long time or will this get off eventually? Thanks Yves
  5. Mooney Caravan 2017 - Who's going?

    Thanks Lance. I am the last Mooney on your last video arriving. Yves
  6. This could be prevented if a visual approach would be monitored by approach gear saying "go around", "go around" if the aircraft is not properly alligned with the target runway when reaching DH. Anyone knows if the equipment allows this, a visual approach mode safety feature? Yves
  7. I just remitted the $302 to Craig. Here is the receipt. Yves
  8. Thanks for all that attended. Thanks to Van Allen Airmotives. Thanks for all donations. We received a total of $604 in donations. This was counted by me and Alan Millet who is member of MooneySpace. As discussed before, the money is being split equally and remitted to the Mooney Caravan Safety foundation and Mooneyspace. I have remitted $302 to Robert Davis, CPA for the Mooney Caravan Safety foundation. I will send to Craig of Mooneyspace $302 as soon as I am back home and will post the receipt here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgcbE4WYI1Q Yves
  9. All right folks... The Mooney Caravan landed around noon yesterday with 51 aircraft... all safely. If anyone took pictures on the ground it would be nice to post them here or somewhere. The Mooney Caravan tent is installed at row 555. All Mooney pilots are welcome to come say hi. The Mooneyspace gathering will be held tonight at 6:30 PM as planned. We are very fortunate one of our MooneySpace member DVA through his aircraft maintenance business Van Allen Airmotives is sponsoring the event and providing funds to buy pizza, beer and other drinks. We will like last year accept donations. These donations will be split evenly between the Monney Caravan safety foundation and the MooneySpace web site. Yves

  15. M20 C Engine Start problems

    My start procedure is different: I leave the electrical pump on while pumping manually the throttle then turn it off then start. Yves
