  1. I'm interested in purchasing a plane in Savannah, Georgia, based at KSAV, and wondered if anyone could put eyes on the plane for me before I started a formal PPI process. I live in Southern California, so going to check it out myself is a little difficult. Thanks in advance for considering the request. If you are willing and able to help out, please PM me, and we'll take it from there.

  4. We have a 1967 Mooney M20F Executive for rent in North Texas. The aircraft is located at Fort Worth Meacham Airport (KFTW). This aircraft has the classic Johnson bar and you will need to be checked out in it by one of our instructors in order to rent it. The rental fee is $180 an hour wet for the first 10 hours and $200 an hour wet after the first 10 hours. It has a 430 WAAS with an optional Garmin 796 and Stratus for a an additional flat fee per rental. Drop me a line if interested.
  5. Has anyone looked at or done a pre-buy on the 1968 F Model For Sale in Alabama, N333MT?
  6. Hello everyone, As the title implies, I'm brand new to MS and will be looking to find an M20F (unless I pull the trigger on a J) within the next year or so. Eventually, I'll be permanently based out of Santa Barbara. I fly active duty for the Navy and have done the mil comp commercial and CFII, and I did my ATP about 6 months ago. I've been watching massive chunks of my life disappear recently to the depths of MS... thanks to everyone that contributes to this impressive website! I have a couple friends that own F's, both are in the Navy as well, and I have broken their will to liv
  7. I'm beginning the search for a Mooney and I thought I had narrowed the choices down to J model. However, now I'm questioning if it's really worth the premium over a well equipped late model F. Assuming a similarly equipped F with a few speed mods, can you guys help me with some pros and cons? After a fair amount of research, here are a few to start with. Pros of a J model over an F generally at least 10 years newer airframe Speed mods already built in Generally better cockpit configuration depending on year Higher VLE ('78+) Better fuel switch (not sure what
  8. Folks, My new (to me) Mooney is coming up on it's first annual and while I have a shop that can do the work (and several vintage Mooney annuals each year), they seem a bit pricey for just the annual. So, I figured I'd seek input on A&P/IA / Shops that get high marks. I'm in Las Vegas NV and don't mind hitting SoCal or AZ (just more reason to fly). 1967 M20F / N135JC Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Cheers,
  9. Hi everyone, my first post here, I'm looking for a motor and Prop for a M20F, The old owner had a prop strike while taxing, What would my options be on a engine (IO 360-A1A?), want to stay with 200HP +, also what are your thoughts on prop 2 blade or 3 blade, I travel long distances from Canada down to Mexico and south to Panama at times.
  10. I’m in the middle of buying a 1975 M20F located at KJBR in Jonesboro Arkansas. Does anyone know of a good A&P in that area that could do an annual or a pre-buy inspection? And advice would be a huge help. Thanks in advance.
  11. Quick question vintage Mooney officianado's, I've put roughly 35 hours on my new to me 67 M20F since taking ownership and finally was able to download the EDM 700 data. The engine is a Lyc remanufactured IO-360-A1A installed in Feb of this year by prior owners. Normal cowl but it does have the lower cowl cover. I'm seeing a consistent temp split between my #2 (hottest) and #1 (coolest) cylinder of ~70-80 deg F. (attached pic of data from one flight). Engine now running Aeroshell 100+...max fuel flow indicated during takeoff ~15-16 gph She runs smooth, during runup with the JPI
  12. Hi folks. Looking for some advice and information from the a&p's and IA's out there, as well as any one else that may have experience with this item or personal knowledge about the repair. Each elevator on our mooneys (this question happens to involve a 67 M20F) has on the outboard side a counterweight shaped like a wide piece of pie, about 2.5 or 3.0 inches wide and about 3/4ths inch tall where it attaches to the elevator. Visually it appears to be pressed on to a cylinder shaped rod but I have no idea how it is actually mounted and secured. I believe (but do not know) that these ar
  13. All of my manuals are at the airport (about a 3hour round trip) or I would look it up myself. Was hoping someone could post the inside dimensions (handle to handle) of the pilot's side yoke in a 67 M20F. I presume that both yokes would be the same but one never knows.... Mark Crouch, Cornelia Georgia
  14. Folks, I'm pitching back into the purchase arena and have narrowed down to a 67 Mooney M20F in Ft Meyers FL. Can you provide recommended pre-buy locations? I'd like a MSC but would settle for a non-MSC if they have lots of experience working on them. Greatly appreciate any assistance Cheers,

  16. Folks, Looking for another assist. I'm in the final stages of purchasing an M20F. Insurance says I have to have 5 hours of dual transition training. They subsequently allowed 3 hours in an M20J locally with the final 2 in my plane (manual gear). So, I'm looking for an instructor with the following (or near the following and I'd petition the insurance co.) 500 total hours 100 hours in retractable gear 25 hours in make and model I suspect they'd agree to 25 hours in a manual gear M20. Any assistance greatly appreciated. Side note: I have a friend planning
  17. Mooney M20F, Lycoming IO360-A1A I thought would put this out there for some advice & feedback. Recently I had my mechanic examine my engine and he mentioned pooling of oil and possible cylinder glazing. Cylinder glazing is a condition that occurs where oil film left on the bore "glazes" to a hard coating and can prevent optimal sealing of ring to bore. The oil here is the result of cylinder head temperatures, CHT'S, not getting hot enough to burn this oil film and. thus prevent the glazing. Optimally, he says, the CHT'S should run about 360-380 F. My engine is seeing a range
  18. Fellow Aviators, Long time listener; first time caller... I recently took a job a long way down the road and will commute weekly. Figured it was time to move on from my local club to buy my own wings of glory. Mooneys have been the only birds I've been interested in owning personally (until of course I can afford a Falcon 2000). Wednesday I'm going to inspect and potentially purchase a 1970 M20F (Technically, an Aerostar. Am I still allowed here?) and there are a couple of questions (some important; some of trivial): - Is Positive Control is on all pre-J M20's - Anythin
  19. Anyone know the part number for the metal can and shroud that go over the fuel pump and where you can buy one?
  20. If anyone here has, or knows of someone who has, a 1969 or newer M20F or an M20J, priced less than $75,000, they would like to sell please let me know as I am actively looking to purchase for myself.
  21. IT'S OFFICIAL. As of today I am now the proud owner of this beautiful 1967 M20 F. N9268M. It's a life long dream come true. Thanks to the previous owner Alan Basinger for his efforts in closing the sale. Also thanks to Lisa Bainter at Aero -Space Reports and AOPA and Falcon Insurance for your assistance throughout. A special thanks goes to Don Maxwell for his expertise and advice and continued great service. I'm based in Santa Monica, Ca. I Hope to meet other Mooniacs in the very near future.
  22. Hey Gang! Just introducing myself. Newly minted private pilot (Just finished my first BFR) working on my Instrument Rating out of KSMO. 150TT 102 PIC 11.2 Complex 30 High Performance. Used to fly 4 - 7 hours a month, now I'm doing 10 - 20. Daily driver is currently a 182P but I'm patiently looking for an M20F in the 50K - 70K range which I would hanger out at KEMT. I'm curious what I should be doing in the meantime. What are the best ways to get my insurance down before I buy. Commercial License? Time in type? I found an M20C a hour or so away from my house and was curious if I did 25 hours
  23. I am based at Hooks in the Houston area and have recently bought a second plane which has a RayJay turbo. I am very pleased with my purchase seems like she is going to be a really good bird. My problem is that the owner cannot locate any info on the turbo. I have never flown a turbo and do not want to "Burn it Up" first time out. The previous owner mostly flew it without turbo and so far that is what I have done as well. Here are the basics 1976 M20F and the RayJay Turbo also installed in 1976. The pilot who flew the plane down from Utah said it worked flawlessly on his flight. Any help
  24. I have spent the last two years tweaking this plane but I'm just not flying enough right now to keep her. So Iam listing it here first and see how it goes then maybe trade a plane. I'm listing it from work so don't have everything in front of be but here is a start I will try to update later. If you have questions please feel free to shoot me a PM. Not alway able to follow listing. Just finished annual with DonMaxwell. Also installed gtx345 ads-b in and out receive weather and traffic.
