Hi - new member here. I have about 350 M20J hours and have decided to buy a used M20R 2GX or 3GX (2005 or later to get the Garmin G1000 with GFC 700 and SVT etc. Not being lazy, but did not find answers elsewhere on the forum). My mission is ~500nm non-stop in IFR and through Class B, taking off and landing in controlled airspace. Here are some questions I could use some guidance and help with: 1. If I base my Mooney at KSVH (A&P mechanic on site but not a Mooney center) how do I get the plane to the nearest authorized service center if it needs service (if it cant be flown there)? And where might the nearest reliable center be? 2. Where is the nearest center where I could do a pre-buy inspection (could not find anything closer than Fort Lauderdale)? 3. Does anyone know of any good planes (of the type described above) for sale? 4. Can someone please describe the buying process to me and how long will it take; 5. Is it better to buy in NC or CT (I have domicile in both places); 6. Could you point me to a few links/resources where I can better learn about buying a Mooney? Many thanks
Hey all, I live in Jupiter, FL, and I'm shopping for a Mooney that's fast, bells and whistles, turbocharged, etc. I'm just doing initial research, but I do need a few things in specific: Good A&P services for pre-buy inspection, as well as regular maintenance, and one that's familiar with the Mooney types. Other service providers like 02, avionics, etc, and tips on where you go would also be useful. I live near F45, or maybe SUA, but FPR or VRB might be my home field for a while if I buy soon. I'm also open to any tips or advice on things to look for with certain types during the pre-buy inspection and annuals. I'm a total newbie, so I'm tapping the knowledge base here. Oh- I'm an ATP with 6k+ hours, but I'm definitely looking for instruction to check me out in type and get me salty. Many thanks in advance. - Firebird
Hi everyone, I'm going to look at a M20K in Washington state and may need a pre-buy if all goes well. Can anyone give me a recommendation? I see Advanced Aircraft Sales in Oregon is a MSC. Any and all info is appreciated.
