1986 Mooney M20J for Sale. Based in Charlottesville, VA

Recommended Posts

Time to let my bird go as I need to look at something with a little more room.  I have owned N5815X for over 5 years and I love this plane.  She will make a new owner very happy.

Priced at $115,000.  More info here: https://n5815x.webflow.io/.  Logs available upon request.  Just DM me your email address.

Hi Richard -

That is one pretty bird. One thing that I see which I want 100% is the digital

engine monitoring system. I've been hearing how monitoring the cylinders

really gives an extra factor of comfort when flying. 

I had a conversation today with Mike Jesch. Are you familiar with him? 

He then connected me with Mike Rodgers via email. Mike Jesch actually

flies a Cessna 180 but does do check outs in the Mooney. I believe, near you. 

He menioned the Johnson Bar, which my instructor also mentioned 

to me on my flight this morning. He got his complex rating in a Mooney.

Do you see a HUGE advantage to having that other than cost of maintenance?

In all honesty I wasn't really considering that in the slightest and like the idea

of the electric gear, as I'm sure other pilots do as well. 

What's your take?

Welcome aboard Stefan...

Preferences for all manual Mooneys, are all over the world...

The only short coming for manual gear... they require a healthy right shoulder to operate...  :)

It doesn’t take a lot of strength, but smoothness of full motion is sort of a requirement...

PP thoughts only, not a physiologist...

Best regards,
