Find a wealthy girlfriend with her own plane?
Yeah nothing right now but give it a couple of months and you’ll see something on Barnstormers. Like a Cozy IV, they aren’t everywhere but it’s still possible to get a used one if you’re patient.
I’m not fond of that engine. And the plane is a bit flimsy to do IFR in.
ADI Stallion, or Super Stallion
You lost me at high wing ...
@FlyingElvii and @Clip4 FTW
Martin Hollmann's Stallion.
Looks awesome, but appears to be a unicorn.
Hollmann died in 2012, but the airplane is real.
Show me one for sale anywhere. I find 9 in the entire Faa registry.
@Salty , I would go in partners with you. But you are in FL and I'm in AK..
According to the website, apparently Hollmann's widow is trying to sell the prototype Super Stallion. The FAA registry shows Rita Costa-Hollmann is still the owner, so it's probably still for sale.
The Glasair Sportsman looks really cool. Too bad you don't have $300K lying around.
Almost a year later, but did this end up in Monterey/Marina?
Yep, MRY is where where the designer is based.
Just adds one minor thing to the "range" criteria. I'm sure you'll find something.
This most certainly true.
But worth it if you can find it.
Buy a 182. Change it to experimental.
Is that even possible?
Depends. The 2 available categories would be Exhibition or R&D. Based upon a thread on this subject over on the EAA Forums, it is doable assuming you do something to the aircraft that would make it eligible for either or those 2 experimental categories. http://eaaforums.org/showthread.php?2609-Converting-Certified-Aircraft-to-Experimental
Having said that, my advice is the same I posted in this thread back in Oct, just buy a 182 or Cardinal and call it good.
Another vote for the Cardinal.
One of the easiest ingress/egress light planes ever. And the most attractive of the high wing Cessnas imo.
But only if you can stand going slower than the Mooney.
I'm always thinking about the next airplane, but this thread is almost a year old. I've dumped a bunch of cash into the Mooney panel now. Thanks for the suggestions anyway guys. lol
Comp Air 4
Spencer Air Car
STOL CH 801-SD
I don't think I missed any. The Bede, Bearhawk, regular Sportsman and Comp Air are all over 150 kts.
Lack of needing suggestions will never slow down people offering advice......
Ah, missed the necro.
Hope the Mooney is awesome
How about a Cardinal RG? I know it’s slower, but you have to ask yourself if you really need all the speed of the Mooney. Probably the easiest plane to get in and out of and one of the sexiest planes around. Great visibility, too. You might even find one with an updated panel. Just a thought.
Sorry - didn’t read the whole thread before suggesting the Cardinal.
Still waiting for the day I can put in a modern autopilot, but otherwise it's pretty sweet.
Friend of mine sold his Mooney for the same reason, wife couldn't get in. Now he flies nothing. He wanted into a Skylane for what he got out of his Mooney. Ain't gonna happen, not in this lifetime.
My hangar neighbor is building one and it is as easy to get into as my Cardinal.
