First of all, great forum, been lurking for some time but I think it's finally time I made an account. I recently left a partnership on account of a move across the country, and am now considering sole ownership. I've researched several aircraft and have mostly narrowed my sights down to an Arrow II or III, or Mooney M20J. I've flown both, though only maybe 2 hours in a J, and like different things about each. The Arrow is dead simple to fly, forgiving, roomy enough, and I believe relatively simple and easy to maintain. The Mooney is faster, sexier, and more cramped, but also more expensive to maintain (or so I hear) on account of the very tight cowlings and certain other design decisions (wet wings for example). My question is, what do you guys think of each, and can anyone chime in on some real ownership costs on one or both? I've found some answers searching both here and on Mooneyspace, but more input would be greatly appreciated.
