New to the group. Thanks for having me. I am new to owning an airplane also. I took a risk on this A model after falling for it while taking it apart for a pre buy inspection. I love all things vintage and or classic if you will. My risk has paid off in my opinion. After getting her back in annual and starting my flight instruction in her she is great to fly and has left a lasting impression on the people that have been up with me in her. It was buy her and bring her back or see it parted out. I could not stand the thought of a piece of Mooney history parted out. N6003X was in Oklahoma for most of its life and now lives in Michigan and I could not be more pleased to have her. I have spent a lot of time fixing things and cleaning her up. She spent 24 years on the ground and now she goes out twice a week until I get my training done. This group is great. Thanks to all that post and answer questions it has helped me so much.

Tc,

First... Welcome aboard!

add some data to your avatar, and a pic too... :)

There is a small cadre of M20A owners around here...

It would be helpful for you, to be recognized as an A owner, by that group...

you will probably have a few questions that are specific to the M20A that the group will know where to go...

Best regards,

-a-

Tclark. Welcome to the forum and to the world of aircraft ownership.

One thing that you cannot do is just give us one (1) picture. We want more!

I love the back windows on the A. So great to see an older plane flying again after sitting so long. It’s a testament to the engineering of Lycoming and Mooney as well as the maintainers willing to get them flying again! I’ve grown to love my short body Mooney!

Great that you keep it from the scrap heap.  Is that got the wooden wings?

There was an A model for sale in Okmulgee, Oklahoma not too long ago. Does this sound familiar?

I will look back and see if that was the area.  It's been since March lol. I know that it was close to Tulsa.

I have a '59 model and enjoy every minute I get to fly it.  Nothing else in it's class can touch it!  

I'm getting mine painted right now - should have some photos under my profile.   Joe
