Way to go G!

Flying the big iron, without the usual passenger challenges....

Good luck with the getting up to speed process.

Best regards,

I sure wish that airplane were gracing my hangar now, but a bit rich for my bank account. I'm still waiting for the final answer on mine, and wondering what to do next. Keep your eyes open for me, my friends. I want all the bells and whistles, perfect interior, exterior, engine, etc,  for 37-year old-231 money. I still can't imagine replacing a Mooney with anything other than an even nicer Mooney.

Well young lady, I'll predict there are folks here who will come courting with shiny babbles.

Perfect except it's there and not here, and that annoying G- registration change.

As an update I’m all settled flying 757 / 767 for UPS. Just bought in on a highly upgraded m20f partnership.

Do Vic and his friend (whose name embarrassingly escapes me) not own this plane anymore?

A lot of fun. Compressed and intense training on par w what I’m used to from the military. Plane is easy to fly after getting familiar w all the various systems.
