  1. Has anyone installed a gas cylinder cabin door assist system on their Mooney? I am interested in a system similar to the Door Steward offered for Cessna, Piper , and Beech aircraft.
  2. when closed, the door to Birdy sticks up out of it's frame by 1/8 to 3/16ths of an inch; is it possible to get this adjusted to be flush? what shop and approx. how long would it take?
  3. On Saturday, my partner noticed that the inner gear door on the pilot side had a rip in the sheet-metal. I have attached pictures. While it is near the rivets, it does not appear to have been a failure of the rivets but rather a jagged tear. I am not sure how a tear like this could occur. Two questions, (1) can this be repaired with some type of metal adhesive or is a weld (or even new gear door) necessary. The pieces do overlap where an adhesion could be made. Second, has anyone had this occur before and what was the cause. Thanks.
  4. Hi everyone, this may seem like a kind of dumb question, but... the hold-open assembly on the door of my M20R bent the other week (careless c.f.i.i) and broke off the door so I've been flying around with it taped up so it doesn't swing around. I have an upcoming instrument checkride and this DPE is a hardass, I had him for my private a while ago. If anything is illegal/breaks some obscure rule, we won't be going flying. I understand the door hold-open assembly most likely isn't required to be airworthy, but where would I find a list that's specific to the Ovation? Also, if any
  5. Question regarding a '68C- Does anyone have experience with their door popping open repeatedly despite it seeming to latch securely, and can relate how it got fixed? Mine has been doing this for over a year now. At annual last month, I had a reputable MSC work on it quite a bit, and they replaced some components of the mechanism, including the main pin that is supposed to lock when you push the handle down. The handle in the cabin does seem to latch with more authority and less play now, but it the door still pops open frequently, in climb only. It happens 50% of the time and particularly i
  6. I was teaching my partner about emergencies in our 1-month-brand-new-to-us J today. I secretly pulled the gear actuator breaker after takeoff to simulate a failure. It took him a while to notice but he did well: Aviate, Navigate, Communicate. After leveling off and reaching about 130kts, we hear a POP and some rushing wind. I looked back and said something along the lines of "The baggage door just came open!" except slightly more vulgar. I told him to slow down and checked to see that he was before looking back again. I saw the door pop off of the little arm that holds it up, heard some bangin
  7. I've got a Bob Fields Door seal on my M20E that leaks. Anyone got experience with finding leaks and/or repairing them?
