Re: Mooney Ovation for sale

Looks like a great airplane, Kent. I wish I had the money to splurge. Until then, I just borrow other peoples' Mooneys.

Nice go-fast bird. Too bad it's only a few bucks less than my house. Outta my league. :-(

You can live in an airplane, but you can't fly a house.

Whoo boy. Not THAT good.

For my "someday airplane" I'm looking more in the $120K range. Or less. Preferably lots less so I can have two airplanes.

Re: Mooney Ovation for sale

Way too much money for me. Probably right for the plane, but my wife would not be happy (understatement of the year). And PWT is so close by to take a look, too. Somebody will be happy with that plane.

Sorry the Mooney I want is an M20E. Still, utterly gorgeous, and an order of magnitude out of my league.

Yup. It's a really nice bird, pictures don't do it justice.

Ghery, if you know anyone in the area who might be interested, please let them know.

Re: Mooney Ovation for sale

The bird's still for sale - My uncle flew west a couple months ago.

The sale is now being handled through Avian Flight Center in Bremerton, WA; updated contact info is in this ad: (Edit: I'm handling the sale now, link below has been updated to the current ad)

http://www.controller.com/listingsde...ON/1251391.htm

If you know anyone who'd like a beautiful Mooney, please pass the word! Thanks.

Re: Mooney Ovation for sale

Kent, first sorry to hear about your uncle. Second the plane is a beauty alas way out of my budget. You might want to recommend to the estate that the price has remained at $184,500 for a year and if they are looking to move it well you got it. Again sorry for your loss.

Re: Mooney Ovation for sale

Kent, I'm sorry about your loss.

Regarding the plane, how do YOU fit in it? I only sat in a Mooney at AirVenture, and it was tight for me, though I don't recall which model it was.

If it's been sitting for a few months, perhaps you need to go out to Washington and give it some exercise.

I haven't flown it yet, but I have flown the smaller M20J and found it to be one of the most comfortable airplanes I've flown. Al Mooney was 6'5" after all... An inch taller than me! So the Mooneys have excellent legroom.

Two friends of my uncle's have been keeping it exercised since his diagnosis last January... It's not a hangar queen, I wouldn't let that happen to such a beautiful bird!

Re: Mooney Ovation for sale

I am the new, temporary caretaker of this excellent airplane - I went out to Washington and picked it up and flew it back to Wisconsin over the weekend. It's been flying regularly, but I hope to make it even more regular.

I will be flying it in to Oshkosh on Friday evening and it'll be there for the whole show. If anyone is interested in taking a look, please call my cell at (414) 305-2447 - It'll be locked and covered when I'm not present.

FWIW - I had it up to FL190 to get over some weather early in the flight. Later on, when I was able to pay more attention to performance, I was getting 180KTAS on 12.2 gph! It flies like it's on rails, and between the speed and all the extras (my favorites being the flight director and built-in oxygen) it makes for a VERY nice traveling machine. I flew well over 1500nm in a day, a new personal record for me, but it's a lot easier to do when you're going so fast. I also flew from Sheridan, WY to West Bend, WI - 834nm plus some sightseeing as flown - in a single leg. What a great traveling machine!
