After flying the Mooney for over a year, I finally decided how best to utilize an iPad in concert with already sophisticated panel mounted avionics.  The dual stack of Garmin 650's connected with XM weather, and TIS-A traffic initially made using an iPad almost not necessary. I had a 12.9" iPad ...

That looks like a very neat setup. I use an Android with Avare for my charts and information. Really beats paper ...

I have been flying Cessna's. Most recently I owned a Cardinal 177RG that I sold. Now looking for a good cross country machine that I can haul a couple passengers and cruise at 150 mph minimum. I live in California so getting over the mountains without circleing for altitude is important. I have ...

What is the one thing you never do when towing a Mooney?  A case study on how a simple software upgrade can go horribly wrong.

I had just landed in Ocean City, NJ (26N).  Nothing like a Mooney with a beautiful sunset in the background.
If you have a favorite sunset pic, post it here.

It's Mooney Monday...  Where did you fly today?  Unfortunately for me, my bird is stuck in Lancaster (KLNS) for annual with Henry Weber Aircraft.  I'm hoping they get it done soon.  Can't belive how much it hurts being grounded.  Help me live vicariously through your stories.  Please share.

I recently installed Garmin's FlightStream 510 into my stacked pair of GTN 650s, and connected it with the Garmin Pilot app installed on my iPad.  Then I took a nice long cross country flight from Frederick, MD to Lakeland, FL for Sun n Fun.  Once safely in cruise flight, my co-pilot (Eric Rush) ...

The inspector saw what looked like a hairline crack in the alternator casing while going over the engine during annual inspection.  When they removed the alternator a piece of the mounting flange literally fell off into his hand.  You can see where the broken piece was located, the broken piece ...
