  1. Well, we left N252AD in Smithville, TX in the capable hands of JD and Laura Casteel at SWTA. It's time for the big one. Her engine made it to 1830 hours on the original cylinders and turbo. But she's definitely tired. Only one cylinder was able to make compression over about 50. And her belly is just one long oil slick all the way to the tail skid. The governor is leaking oil as well, and the vacuum pump can't seem to muster enough power to deploy the speed brakes anymore. This year's annual will include an engine overhaul and Encore conversion. The engine, turbo, waste gate, govern
  2. I am an individual looking for a well maintained 252TSE. I live in Austin, Tx and have a home in the mountains requiring a turbo plane to get in and out of. If anyone out there is thinking about or know someone thinking about selling their plane, we can save a little money and bypass a dealer (and tire kickers and scammers) to each of our benefit. Please reach out to me directly at Ford McTee ford@mctee.net
  3. I’m upgrading my M20K 252 to an Encore with SB engine and dual caliper brakes. I need an Encore POH in printed or .pdf format. Does any have one to sell or know where I can get one?
  4. Getting used to flying my new Encore (conversion) and loving it. But as a newbie to the plane and high performance engines in general I'd like to hear some best practices. First question is about descent... My instructor, quoting an old rule of thumb for turbocharged engines, says reduce MP by 1" per minute to avoid shock cooling. My mechanic, still being conservative, says maybe 2" per minute is ok. Either way, the thing just wants to fly so you've gotta wait forever to slow down and start descending. But this MAPA article, written by one of Mooney's test pilots, says just chop it to 20" a
  5. Does anyone have a good supplier for a gear down switch for my 1997 Encore?
  6. As a PPL student earlier this year, I spent many, many hours trolling these forums as well as other sites, trying to glean the benefits of others' experience. My goal was to acquire a plane that I could fly to/from client sites all over the east and midwest. I want to share some of my recent thoughts/decisions in case someone else comes along who is looking for similar info. I bought Parker's Encore-converted 252 in July, about the same week as I got my PPL. I thought really hard about whether I needed TKS at the time, but it was a big jump price-wise to find something already equipped.
  7. Been flying my new (to me) 252/Encore conversion for about 3 months now, so I'm still getting used to it in many ways. But one thing that is alarming is that I smell fuel in the cockpit rather strongly on short final sometimes. It seems to happen the most and be the strongest when I close the throttle completely if I'm coming in too high, for example. It may be the attitude (fuel moving forward in the tanks?) and not related to the throttle position, but I feel like I've noticed it more often when I've been too high (darn slippery airplane!) and cut the throttle abruptly. This is r
  8. Wanted: M20K Encore or 252 Wish-list: FIKI TKS, G500 or Aspen PFD, WAAS capabilities, nice Engine Monitor, Flown and Well-maintained Hopefully you're for sale out there! Was going to go with the 231, and found a great plane, but I ski, bike, and load gear. Fold down/removable seats are a must. Plus, FIKI is not an option in that plane. If I can't find soon, plane partner wants to pull the trigger on a Bo.
  9. From the album: N252BH

  10. First aircraft purchase. I've done a ton of research and have set my mind on getting an Encore. There are 2 on Controller and I can't find any others on aso, trade-a-plane, or barnstormers. Anyone know of others out there or have any tips on where to look? This one looks perfect, waiting for a call back from the broker: http://www.controller.com/listingsdetail/aircraft-for-sale/MOONEY-M20K-ENCORE/1998-MOONEY-M20K-ENCORE/1253099.htm Any thoughts on how to price this one out? I've looked into moving the registration from Canada to US and it will likely be on the easy side of
  11. Has anyone looked at any of the three Encores on controller.com? Any intel for a prospective buyer?
