Two Year Hiatus

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Back from the real world. It's been two years since I bought & sold my first Mooney. I see @Guitarmaster (Matt) has moved on to a twin- congrats, Matt!

So back in 2017, I basically lost my a$$ on a small business back in Michigan. I had purchased a M20E and was happily flying it (when weather cooperated) between home and MDW. Thanks again to Matt for all the help, tips and friendship. We sold the business at a great loss, licked our wounds, and moved to Las Vegas- or rather, more accurately, Pahrump, Nevada; about an hour west of Las Vegas. And guess what? They have a private airpark called Calvada Meadows. So, the other day, I took a drive by. One thing led to another, and here I am back on Mooney Space.

I've gotten the flying bug again. Yes, I fly professionally but really didn't have a reason to own my M20E once I departed central MI. This time, I'm taking my time to look for just the right plane, under the right circumstances, because I don't want to end up giving it away like the first one. Along the way, I'll have to buy (no possibility of renting hangar space out here) a hangar lot, put up a hangar, and look around for a good mechanic- all the things I had (via rental hangar) back in Michigan.

Good to see familiar posts by familiar folks here at MS and I hope to soon be (again) a proud Mooniac.

I flew into Calvados Meadows a few times when I was living in North Las Vegas, good folks. Participated in several Young Eagles events there. 

Good times, good luck with the hunt.

Welcome back. The economy of the short body Mooneys can even tolerate a bad business decision...hope you get back into it soon!

Welcome home, Roy!

So Many things have changed in the Mooney world...

And... So many things haven’t changed at all...

Get settled in, there is plenty of ground to cover.

See ya around the patch,

Welcome back Roy! 

Hope you find the bird you want! I am also a local Las Vegas Mooniac! (Henderson specifically) I live 5 minutes from HND. 

While not a current Mooney owner (sold my E 2 years ago to save and upgrade) I am flying a Cherokee 6 at the moment. But I am actively searching for my next M20. 

If you need help getting around to see mooney’s I’d be happy to do that, schedule permitting. 

Mike
